Former AFP chief and former cabinet secretary Angelo Reyes was declared dead at the Quirino Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City at about 7:45AM.
He was 65. Reyes sustained a single gunshot wound in his chest and was reported to have committed suicide. A preliminary showed that he had bullet wound in the heart. Reyes visited his mother’s grave with his 2 children and 2 aides at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City. “Pinalayo ang mga anak tapos biglang may pumutok. Nakita ko na lang si Reyes nakalugmok sa puntod ng nanay niya,” a caretaker in the said cemetery revealed. Angelo Reyes is embroiled in a controversy over alleged military corruption in the Armed Forces of the Philippines or AFP.
