Three months after the gruesome murder of Dr. and Mrs. Mario Valera, the gunman finally admits to the killings. The question remains, who ordered the killing?

By Raymund Catindig, Charlie Lagasca (The Philippine Star)

MANILA, Philippines – A man who confessed last month to killing Abra congressman Luis Bersamin in 2006 has also admitted to killing a couple in La Union last May 23, a police official said yesterday.

Lindon Alzate, 31, a resident of Manabo town, said he shot dead doctor Mario Valera and his wife, Viana, along the Naguilian-Baguio Road, according to Chief Inspector George Dipalog, who heads the Bauang, La Union police force.

Alzate, who was arrested for illegal gun possession in Quezon City last month, was charged with double murder before the Department of Justice in connection with the couple’s slay, Dipalog said.

He added that witnesses also identified Alzate as the couple’s killer.

Alzate was arrested at a police checkpoint along J.P. Rizal street in Barangay Bagong Silangan while riding a motorcycle driven by Ronald Bolor after he was found carrying a .45 caliber pistol.

Police said Alzate, believed to be a gun-for-hire, was supposed to kill another target at the time of his arrest. Alzate was also reportedly involved in several slay attempts in Abra from 2006 to 2010.

  1. If Alzate spills the beans, it will solve 3 murders (I hope he also talk about his other missions). I would think the Bersamin and Valeras killings has different masterminds involved. I hope Alzate is in safe custody, if not he would be eliminated to stop him from divulging the people behind all these killings.

  2. Let Vicsyd out if he’s not the mastermind. Kakaasi la diay tao nga naibalud ti basol sabali nga tao.

    Vicsyd maybe innocent because no other than justice Lucas B said before ” ita naliknawen ti pannakatay ti kabsatmi, ……nga aramid t balasiw ti karayan ……..no saanak koma nga maimpeach ……….., matulongak ” ngem sinno koma ti masterminds ti pannakatay da mayor Benwaren, mayor Sigundo, SP Bersamin. Atty Pre? Sapay koma ta ad-adu pay nga mystrio ti pammapatay ti maamuan ti pudno babaen ken daytoy Alzate ken Bolor. Let us give thanks to The Lord for this toward peace development.

    • “No saanak koma nga maimpeach…..” Why is Justice Lucas so afraid of impeachment? Well, he should. In the heat of the search for hard evidence against the corrupt Corona, members of the prosecution team, specifically Congressman Neil Tupas stumbled upon evidence of graft and corruption against Lucas Bersamin and Presbiterio Velasco. These two members of the Supreme Court were supposed to be next in the impeachment line to Corona. That was perhaps the reason why Lucas Bersamin was seen several times on national television lustily cheering while the corrupt Corona was speaking to the crowd. Perhaps, he may have thought, if Corona escapes impeachment, he too would be spared. He was wrong, dead wrong. I would recommend the book, “Shadow of Doubt” written by Maritess Danguilan-Vitug to people who may want to know how Lucas Bersamin became associate justice of the Supreme Court despite his lack of qualifications. Readers would also know how Justice Antonio Carpio made minced meat out of Lucas showing him very clearly that they were not intellectual peers. By the way, justices of the Supreme Court moved heaven and earth to prevent Mrs. Vitug from publishing this book, to the extent of filing a case against her. The justices were also able to intimidate owners of big bookstores to refrain from selling the book. Mrs. Socorro Ramos, owner of National Bookstore was one of those who succumbed to the intimidation. It was only through the tireless efforts of my son that I was able to get my copy of the book. Read it and you will find out how corrupt to the core the justice system in the Philippines is.

    • I wonder where you got your alleged quotes from Justice Bersamin. He never made such statements. The murder case of my Uncle Chito is still pending before a court of law, and from the start, Justice Bersamin never made any statements as regards the merits of the case, except as to its status. In fact, he is not in the habit of expressing his opinions in pending cases out of respect to the court.
      Please refrain from speculating on what his thoughts are about the case. It is misleading the public.
      If you really must know what he thinks, why not ask him personally? He may entertain you.

    • There should not be conclusions based upon the book written by a writer, especially when it subjected certain
      people, Sometimes author makes numerous twists and distortions of facts and events, to make more fascinations for the reader/s, and making the book very saleable (more money). Just remember, a writer easily makes a story.

  5. When I heard about Vicsyd in jail, I was very heartbroken even we had that slight misunderstanding. . I had always been making a joke in facebook that if they hire me to represent him, I could win his case based on my “diskarte” of the case. His nephew in Dolores had always been thanking me. I told the same thing to his closest friend…Bobbie Astudillo and Zinia Astudillo. We talked and talked about his inarceration. I always told them, it’s impossible. Knowing him (Vicsyd) I won’t believe he could do such a crime. Now that there is someone claiming the murder of Cong. Chito, he should be released as soon as possible.
    . Abrenians can rally for this release.

    • I have written in my post way back about the conspiracy to grab power from Gov. Vicsyd Valera but those who knew no better derided me for it, asking pointedly, “what power grab”? The murder of Chito Bersamin was the catalyst for the power grab because Chito and Vicsyd are unbeatable in a fair and honest election because of their popularity. Whether they indeed served the interests of the greater majority of Abrenos is another story. Not even in his wildest dreams could Takit Bersamin see himself as governor of Abra. It was handed to him on a silver platter through the murder of his brother and the machinations of the most evil PNP Regional Director to serve in the Cordilleras in the person of Eugene Martin. The Bersamins are enjoying the fruits of governance and Lucas is waiting on the wings to dip his dirty finger in Abra politics too. That is the reason they have not made any move to rectify their mistake in sending Vicsyd Valera to jail through all means, fair and foul. Before anyone gets fooled again by another Bersamin, let me warn my fellow Abrenos to be extra careful in pushing for the candidacy of Lucas Bersamin for any political position. He is not the clean and honest person he purports to be. In due time, I will expose his shenanigans. He has many skeletons in his closet. The evil that men do will not be forgotten. Even after death they will be condemned for it. BETTER A LITTLE GAINED HONESTLY THAN A STACK GAINED THROUGH PLUNDER AND JUSTICE FOR SALE.

      • Hey Pedro, I like your style. I am with you all the way with injustice Lucas. He is one of the most corrupt justice in QC with his little BiG gopher Freddie Fair. VV deserved to be let out from his 4×4 cell. The replacements are more corrupt than ever. Yes you, Eustaquio Bersamin, Dominic Valera and Bernos’ family. VV is no saint also but look at what’s happening now with our province. Lucas is now building a house in Zone 7 that also cause the flood in the neighborhood. Just watch this coming election. It will be Eustaquio and Lucas tag team.

      • Now, may I please ask you Pedro, is there some sort of a “mastermind” or a “manipulator” on the correlated events
        you have detailed in your above-post ( murder of Chito/jailing of Vicsyd/machinations of Eugene M. ? I am sure you
        have some answer, as it appears you are an intelligent and well-informed person. Appreciate your response.

      • if vicsyd has nothing to do with the murder of chito then ask chary to withdraw the case against him. ganun lng kasimple you know the bersamins know s very well to play their cards, takit by being tulpak and pingi for him to be saint in the eyes of abrenian and now they want to create doubt that vicsyd is not the real mastermind so that their foes will be blamed. hope all of them will join vicsyde in his cell

Third, I never claimed to be a genius. I am simply a keen observer of politics. I respect everybody’s opinion even if it is done in an uncivilized and uncouth manner. I will not dignify your uncivilized behavior by going back and forth with you. I will just pray for you. You are very “polite”.

    • BARTEK TULENG, review your posts in the thread, “Abra Fiscals Hands Stricken out in Mayor-Father Killing Rampage Raps, specifically your posts last August 19 at 5:49PM, 5:52PM and August 20 at 6:49AM, 11:54AM, 6:04PM, and 8:32PM. All of these posts have nothing to do with the topic of the thread. Shame on you for taking me to task for something you yourself do over and over again. There are so many posts in Abrenian.com that are irrelevant to the topic but find relevance because they are done in response or to comment on a previous post. So why pick on me? I have always maintained my civility and courtesy even under the most vicious attacks on my person. Have you heard me chide people for wrong grammar? Never, because I respect everyone and I never look down on people participating through their comments and observations. If there is something wrong and I know that there are times I am wrong, tell me in a civilized manner. The way we agree or disagree with people speaks volumes about the kind of education we had and the way we were brought up by our parents. I hope we can all act like decent and respectable people.

  10. Bartek Tuleng, your sophism is totally out of nowhere. Don’t be hysterical and let Pedro Abrenio spill the beans and we will see if what he got, if it is implied or explicit, in that way we can discern and see if we clap our hands or stand aside and wait and see. Rather shall we say what he got is a fact or not. Coz now I am also trying to got hold of that book “Shadow of Doubt”. Just drink your “Dirty Mama” and relax, he, he, he, or would you like another mixture, the Japanese “Kamikaze”.

Please don’t let your emotion embarrasses or hurts you for the delight of others who might not even care to comfort you when you needed one. It seems that you are a nice and funny guy that you don’t deserve to get hurt with the legal problem of others even they are your close relatives or friends for their still a law that settles it. Just remain calm, happy, and funny and never allow yourself again to be stressed or bothered for this is so bad with your healthy mind and body. We just wait how justice prevails during the prosecution if there will be one for Sir Pedro or anybody else has all the rights to exercise their freedom of expression as guaranteed by the Constitution. Say sorry my friend, will you? Thanks and I will say sorry too if ever this humble piece of mine will offend you.

      • The truth is Bartek Tuleng could use proper English grammar if he wants to. He prefers to do the opposite just to give us fun for sometimes we are too serious, no more, no less. Do you think he was damn serious in chiding Sir Pedro? No….It was only his technique to force him in talking some more because he too likes what the man were imparting or sharing with us. Like some of us he is lucky too because we still have someone like Sir Pedro who have knowledge in any field of paramount importance where most of us were lack of it. Who wouldn’t be impressed with him who unselfishly dealing with us despite of the negative feedback that he received sometimes? This man is different far above from our category but still he got out from his box because of his impeccable love to his province in particular but to his constituents in general who are still bleeding with despicable poverty and fear from harassment and intimidation that might end their life in either way.
        My dearest friend Bartek and others, if you couldn’t handle someone or anything on this thread let’s go to the thread “Tangadan Top Performing School………and take it with our hearts the message of Pokpo-kikiang. It really does help especially with someone with agitated heart and mind. Then, it’s good to try the website shared/posted by Joan for it gives more fun or surprises than pain that we never did expect. But it’s to you though,,,,,agsipud ta ad-addu ti mapaisem wenno maparagsak mo nga Abrenians kadayta style yo ken Syoke and others. Maikkat ti stress da ket ti panagkunak agyaman da koma ken tultuladin da koma ti kina-professional ni Sir Pedro nga saan nga mang-chide ti style tayo nga agpakpakatawa laeng. Nevertheless, I’m so sorry if ever I will offend or has already offended someone for it’s not my style to hurt someone’s feeling.

    • Thank you Tagamasid for your kind words. May I inform you that I have never been to the U.S.A. or London. I and all the members of my family have never worked in government and we have never ventured into politics. I was blessed to have the best education money can buy in our country. I was in grammar school when I was barely 4 years old. I worked for over ten years as Vice-President for operations in a private corporation. I was also blessed with the opportunity to lecture at the University of Life and the TLRC. I was the features editor of the school paper and I was the editor-in-chief of a reputable service orgnization with members throughout the world. I am a voracious reader and I have a library of my own. I spend most of my money on books. For the better part of my life I engaged in business with my brothers. I have no political alliance with anybody. I do not need to suck up to politicians or government officials to get ahead in life. There is nothing I want but a better life for our people. People criticize me for writing in English instead of Ilocano. Tagamasid, I was raised by my parents in Metro Manila. That is where I grew up, studied, worked and engaged in business. I relocated to Bangued when I retired some 24 years ago. I understand Ilocano fairly well but I have a problem writing in Ilocano. I would have written all my posts in Ilocano if only I knew. I am in the twilight of my life. I have dedicated the rest of my life to inform our people about the raging issues that affect them with the end in view of empowering them. There are people who will agree with me and there are some who will not. To me, that is fair enough. If my concern for the issues that will lead to a better life for our people will be the stick some people would use to beat me with, then so be it. I do not ask people to agree with everything I say, I only ask for respect, decency and civility. If I make mistakes and I surely will, people can correct me. I am a living and breathing human being who is far from perfect. But my parents brought me up to be a God-fearing, respectful and helpful soul. God bless.

      • Your upbringing, schooling, and accomplishments are very admirable and enviable Mr. Abreno. I planned to be in
        Bangued sometime during first quarter of next year (2014), this will be my first visit of the place. It looks you are
        well-informed about Abra (Bangued in particular), and I appreciate your thoughts and ideas. Been in Tangadan
        when I was a kid.
        I like to know more about Abra, including its political aspect, so I wish to meet you during my visit.Appreciate your
        response through my email address ( annaktiabra@gmail.com). Thank you.

  21. No wonder you have a great reservoir of wisdom sir P Abrenio! Participants here like me are blessed to be benefited from your unselfish display of great thoughts and ideas . The way you accept negative comments and attempt to disagree on some others opinion is so refined and very professional is worth emulating. I know little by little, we, who sometime used words devoid of decency will be influenced by your examples. Kung maari sana, suggestion ko, paminsan minsan, gumamit kayo ng Filipino at lalong mapapakinabangan ang inyong mga magagandang mensahe.

    Election manen ket kasapulan ti palpalaguip kadagiti botantes. Ti kaadu nga padasyo ti biag, agraman ken ms Omli River Cross, etc., apay dila mabalin nga maaramat ti Radio with the coordination of COMELEC tapno mabayabay ti kaaduan nga mangammo ken mangaramid dagiti napapateg banag maipangguep ti rebbengen ti maysa nga botantes. Adu wenno kaaduan ti kailian ket kuarta laeng ti napateg isu nga saan nga agsukat ti kasasaad ken agturay ti Abra. Maybe the church/churches n NGOs will join hands to help re’educate’ our voters for their rights and responsibilities. Whatever actions toward this suggestion will be most welcomed by many (I believe).

    • if vicsyd has nothing to do with the murder of chito then ask chary to withdraw the case against him. ganun lng kasimple you know the bersamins know s very well to play their cards, takit by being tulpak and pingi for him to be saint in the eyes of abrenian and now they want to create doubt that vicsyd is not the real mastermind so that their foes will be blamed. hope all of them will join vicsyde in his cell
