Motel CCTV captures man’s two killers

Creepy! The family of the deceased, Don Relova, is asking people to help identify the two suspects captured on a motel’s CCTV camera. Watch the video and see the faces of a young man and woman who were the last two people seen leaving the room of the murder victim.
One wonders what a 69-year-old broker would be doing in a motel at 4 in the afternoon, followed by a couple that looks like they checked in a room on the same floor.
The young woman enters the broker’s room (an escort?), followed an hour later by her companion who changes into a white T-shirt.
Both leave the broker’s room minutes later with the man having changed into a black T-shirt.
The victim’s body was found six hours later.

Broker found dead in motel room

Cops looking for mystery woman, cohort

, Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Was it a case of robbery or revenge?
A 69-year-old real estate broker was found dead inside a motel room in Mandaluyong City before midnight on Monday.
According to the police, Don Relova, a resident of Sta. Ana, Manila, was poisoned and struck on the head with a hard object.
His body was found inside the Sogo Hotel on Kalentong Street in Barangay Pag-asa.
All his valuables, however, were missing, including his jewelry, cell phone and a wallet containing cash and identification cards.
Chief Insp. Jaime Masilang, head of the Mandaluyong police investigation unit, said the victim checked in by himself at 4:49 p.m. on Monday.
Six hours later, the motel supervisor found him lying lifeless on the bed in his underwear. He had a head wound while there were gray powder stains on his mouth and cheeks.
Masilang said an empty bottle of rat poison was found in the toilet which led them to believe that he could have been poisoned before he was hit in the head with a heavy object.
Also recovered beside the body was a letter which referred to the victim in unflattering terms.
Masilag said the letter writer, who had yet to be identified by the police, described Relova as a bad person without any sense of delicadeza in addition to being a miser and a lecher.
Based on the initial results of the police investigation, a check of the footage taken by one of the motel’s closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras showed a woman entering the victim’s room followed by a man an hour later.
The two came out of the room after a few minutes.
Masilang said they were waiting for the results of the autopsy conducted on the victim’s body to determine his cause of death.
“We still can’t give any conclusions about the motive for the killing until the investigation is complete,” he added.
According to him, they were coordinating with motel employees to obtain a copy of the CCTV footage which could help them identify the victim’s killers.

This exciting venture follows up Scott’s previous and very successful collaboration with Swatch, back in March 2011, when he unleashed three unique watch designs.
This time around (no pun intended) Jeremy Scott designs five new pieces for Swatch:
Melted Minutes, features a transparent plastic dial, created with an amusing ‘melted’ visual effect.

Finally, two new sites I’ve been excited to share.
First is which is sort of an online bulletin board or scrapbook of things you like—you know when you see cool things online and grab the photos only to forget which site you found it on?
Pinterest will keep your photos and links in one place—plus prices if you like.
You can follow other people who share the same “pinterests” as you. Think of it as your virtual peg board.
