Bacoleña’s hubby
suspect in murder


The family of a Bacoleña who was reportedly murdered by her Davaoeño husband in Ontario City, Canada, yesterday called on Canadian authorities for the immediate arrest of the suspect.

The Global Toronto Website reported that Aicha Saludares-Tayongtong, 40, was found with multiple stab wounds at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday (Sunday Philippine time) at their house in Lake Road East Mississauga, Ontario.

The website also reported that her husband, Nelson Tayongtong, is considered the prime suspect in her death and is now being sought by the police.

Julio Siason of Talisay City and the brother of Mrs. Tayungtong’s mother, Elma, said the sudden death of his niece came as a shock for him and his family as his niece was a good-hearted person.

“What could have been my niece’s fault to deserve this kind of death?”, he asked.

Siason added that the last time he saw his niece alive was in February this year, when she came home to Negros Occidental with her husband and mother for the celebration of the 90th birthday of her grandmother, Dorothea, who was also devastated by her death.

Siason also theorized that Tayongtong might have gotten mad at his niece, who was planning to separate from him, which must have resulted to the argument and eventually to the killing.

His niece and Tayongtong had been married for two years now and they used to be classmates at the Alangilan Elementary School, when Tayongtong was still living with his aunt in the barangay, Siason also said.

“If he is not really guilty of killing her, he should surface and clear his name”, Siason said of Tayongtong.

The couple have been living in Canada since 1985 after her parents and her siblings migrated there.*APN
