Police rescue operatives shot d**d a 39-year old man who had stabbed to d***h his wife and his sister early dawn yesterday in Dalaguete, Cebu.
Police theorized Jose Benjie Beldad was suffering from mental problems due to long years of drug a***e and k****d his wife, Wilma, by slitting her throat with a 15-inch knife.
He then stabbed to d***h his older sister, Alma Beldad Sabarita, 56, and wounded his son, Jose Beldad, Jr. before police arrived at the Beldad residence in Sitio Cambarko, Barangay Lanao, Dalaguete town.
According to Sunstar report, the incident shocked Beldad’s father, 78-year old Panfilo who said he never expected the tragedy to happen.
Last Thursday, Panfilo said he gave his son rice and fried fish but he refused to eat and instead gave his food to his children.
Panfilo asked Jose what’s wrong with him and he just listlessly answered, “masakit ang ulo tatay.” However, he told police that he had suspected his son was hooked into illegal drugs.
Police investigator, PO3 Rodrigo Teo, said Beldad must have been high on drugs when he committed the crime.
Beldad’s father narrated to police investigators that his son got a job as construction worker last October in Mandaue City.
Beldad went home every Saturday and went back to his work the following morning.
When he arrived home last Nov. 19, his family noticed something weird in him. He kept on shouting and asking who k****d his wife. Beldad only calmed down when he was told that nobody in the family had died.
But Panfilo said his son always went hysterical, repeatedly shouting and asking who k****d his wife.
Last Thursday, Wilma brought her husband to the health center to have him treated. But while on the way to the clinic on a tricycle, Beldad jumped, hurting himself as he landed on the road pavement.
The following morning, at around 3 a.m. the tragic killing happened as Beldad went wild amock.
Earlier In a separate incident last November 4, Antonio Batoctoy, 34, stabbed to d***h his wife, Maria, in Barangay Consolacion, Dalaguete. He was suspected of being a junkie.
The police gathered that Maria was asleep alongside her five kids with ages 2, 4, 7, 11, 13 when Antonio who was sniffing s***u while watching a TV show, went wild, grabbed a kitchen knife and attacked her.
Batoctoy set on fire their house after killing his wife, the police said.
