Death of Gen. Angelo Reyes

Angelo Reyes, former defense secretary and Chief of Energy, passed away this morning. He reportedly committed suicide at the Loyola Memorial Park, shooting himself in the chest. He was visiting his mother’s grave with his sons and a bodyguard. He reportedly asked his sons to go ahead and wait for him in the car when all of a sudden there was a shot heard.

He was rushed to the Quirino Memorial Medical Center where 45 minutes later he was pronounced dead.

Suicide is never an option. I pray for strength and understanding for his love ones.
