El Nido is a very peaceful town. A wonderful place really – I am sure investigators will not leave any stone unturned and look into this.

Political killings in the past were rare in Palawan. When I worked there as a journalist some years back. Perhaps the new Presidential Commission on violence should look into this ?

REPORT :

[] … ” Former El Nido vice-mayor shot dead
A former vice-mayor of El Nido town in Palawan was shot dead before dawn Monday, DZMM reported. Senior Superintendent Arsenio Pinacate, officer-in-charge of the Palawan Police Office, said ex-vice-mayor Edwin Vidal was shot inside his home at 3 a.m.. He was declared dead on arrival at a hospital, Pinacate added. Police are still gathering information on Vidal’s assailant.Vidal was reportedly eyeing the mayoral post in the 2007 elections. …” [] ABS-CBNNews.com
