Angelo Reyes died in an apparent suicide today, February 8, 2011.

A retired AFP Chief-of-Staff and former Defense Secretary, Angelo Reyes suffered gun shot wound in his chest which according to the police was a suicide 'coz there were no signs of a foul play.

Sec. Angelo Reyes' suicide happened while visiting the grave of his mother, Purificacion Reyes, at the Loyola Memorial Park. He was rushed to Quirino Memorial Medical Center in QC at around 7:45 AM and the doctors tried to revive him, but at 8:32 AM, Reyes was officially declared dead, as reported this morning on ABS-CBN's News Patrol.

Sec. Reyes was reportedly reading a book before he killed himself. According to a report from DZBB, he was reading the book "Trump: The Art of the Deal" by Donald Trump and Tony Schwartz.

He was 65 years old (March 17, 1945-February 8, 2011), and is survived by his wife Teresita and 5 sons.

Sec. Angelo served as Armed Forces Chief-of-Staff from 2000 to 2001, and was later appointed as Secretary in 4 Departments under the Arroyo administration.

He was Secretary of National Defense from 2001 to 2003, of DILG from 2004 to 2006, then of DENR a year after and lastly, as Department of Energy Secretary in 2007-2010.

Just recently, Reyes was linked to an AFP Fund Scandal where he allegedly received a "pabaon" of P50M when he retired as AFP Chief.

Today, the date of Sec. Angelo Reyes' death, happens to be the 51st birthday of Pres. Noynoy Aquino.

  1. Condolence sa family ni Gen. Reyes. Kahit nakainis ang ginawa nila, tao pa rin sya at kailangan ng respeto.

    Ang masasabi ko lang mas ok sana ang imbestigasyon sa senado at congresso kung ang nag-iimbestiga ay walang bahid ng corruption ang mga pamilya nila. "Let him who has no sin cast the first stone." Get me jinggoy?

  18. Ang tanung, ang nagaakusa ba ay malinis ang pagkatao, gumaganti lang? walang magyayari jan sa investigation. dahil karamihan sa nagpapainvestigate at sumasawsaw sa isyu ay nagbibida bidahan lang dahil ang totoo sa likod ng lahat sila na namn ang nagungurakot di ba? father and son

    ReplyDelete
  19. dapat pati yung mga nag iimbestiga magpakamatay na din kasi pag hidi sila nagpakamatay, sila na naman ang magungurakot kya nga kumandidato ang mga yan,para magsilbe sa bayan kapalit ay milliones na hahakutin para sa kanilang sariling interes. paulit ulit lang ang lahat. abangan mo sila na naman ang aakusahan.

  24. While a Japanese Kamikaze pilot taking a suicide attack is honorable and patriotic but for a high ranking military man like Angelo Reyes taking his life out is disgraceful and an act of cowardice.

  25. He's murdered to keep the truth from coming out.

  26. A lot of people are involve in corruption. So better sacrifice 1 person- a scapegoat. That's why he become a hero for the corrupt/guilty ones.

  28. Kasi sa mga Japanese kultura nila iyon. Ang katwiran nila mabuti na ang magpakamatay kaysa mahuli ng kalaban. Kung walang kasalanan si Angelo Reyes hindi siya dapat nagpakamatay dapat hinarap niya ang problemang kinasangkutan niya. Sa ginawa niya isa lang ang ibig sabihin totoo ang ibinibintang sa kanya.

  29. theres no reason for Angelo to do such thing to commit suicide if the fund scandal from the AFP from which he was involved is not true... His death is the key to expose the truth so the the govt. should strive more to prosecute those involved for the sake of poor filipino. Angelos death will be useless if no one will be punish.....
