The mother of one of the “Fallen 44” on Tuesday cried for justice while the wife said that in his last message, her husband promised to return right after their mission for their first baby.
“We want justice,” shouted Telly Sumbilla, 62, as she showed the back of her T-shirt with “Justice for the Fallen Heroes 44” printed. The old woman said they still could not accept what happened to her son.
A Criminology graduate in Dagupan, John Lloyd was the 3rd of her four children with the late former chief of police of Sulat, Eastern Samar.
‘Nagpaalamsa akin ang asawa ko na papasok na sila sa kampo 8:31 p.m. noong January 24. Isa-silent na raw niya cellphone niya. Babalik daw siya para sa baby namin,” said wife Raechel.
In the morning of January 24, Raechel had an ultrasound and the result showed that she will have a baby girl that she texted to her husband. “Tumawag agad siya, tuwang-tuwa,” the wife said.
The remains of the trooper will be cremated Thursday. Raechel said half of the ash will be left to her and the other half will be brought by her mother-in-law to Eastern Samar.
