Dino Manrique's picture

Tragic news for the filmmaking community. Film Critic Alexis Tioseco and his girlfriend Nika Bohinc were murdered last night at their home at Times Street, Quezon City. I'll just quote Ewong Martinez from his Facebook status: "Just heard this report over DZMM Tele-radyo: One of the maids (Magdalena) was kept in the room and gagged. There are 4 suspects; apparently, the other maid (Criselda) was the one who let in the three robbers. Later, Magdalena heard gunshots when Alexis and Nika had arrived....... The suspects got away with a white Ford Lynx. Magdalena then struggled out and called for help."

Am still in shock... Wishing this is just a bad dream...

Let us pray for Alexis, Nika and their families, and for the swift apprehension of the culprits...

MANILA, Philippines – Friends and relatives of slain film critic Alexis Tioseco have offered a cash reward of P1 million for information that could lead to the arrest of the killers.

Tioseco and his Slovenian partner Nika Bohinc were shot and killed by 3 suspects in their home at 39 Times Street, Barangay West Triangle, Quezon City on Sept. 1, 2009.

Authorities believe the couple’s househelper, Criselda Gesman Dayag, may have a hand in the murders.

A close friend of Tioseco, Rock Ed Philippines founder Gang Badoy, said investigations by police are still focused on Dayag.

A warrant has already been issued for Dayag’s arrest but she is still at large.
