In April 2009, PO1 Joelan Collendres, 24, a native of New Washington, Aklan, also shot himself dead inside a police station in Real, Quezon.
Insp. Bernard Espura of the Aklan Provincial Public Safety Management Company also cut his life right inside the bachelor’s officer’s quarters of the Aklan Police Provincial Police Office in Camp Martelino in Barangay New Buswang, Kalibo, Aklan last April 2010.
In these suicide cases, no clear reasons were known. (ASA)
