PARRICIDE charges have been filed against an American over the murder of his Filipina wife in Negros Oriental.

BACOLOD CITY – Police filed Thursday, July 21, charges of parricide and murder against an American and his new lover for the death of his wife in Valencia, Negros Oriental Tuesday this week.

Charged with parricide was 55-year-old Daniel Lawrence Glazier, husband of nurse Maribel, 32, of Barangay Junob, Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, who was found buried in a shallow grave in their property in Barangay Palinpinon, Valencia, Tuesday, July 19, Police Major Roger Quijano, Valencia police chief, said.

Maribel’s body was found after her friends reported her missing to the police since Sunday when they could not reach her. Her friends looked for her in places where the victim frequently go and found her decomposing body in Valencia.

Police believed that Maribel was hit by a hard object that caused her death.

A day after the discovery of Maribel’s body, Daniel surrendered to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Wednesday, July 20, making police consider him a suspect and a person of interest at that time.

Aside from Daniel, Quijano said that the suspect’s new lover, whose name was withheld by the police for the meantime, was charged for murder as she could also be considered a principal by direct participation.

Prior to her murder, Quijano said the victim left a letter to her friends stating that if something happens to her, they should look for a certain person, referring to her husband.

Quijano also said that the victim’s helper who was supposed to return to work Sunday, July 17, was reportedly told by the foreigner not to report as his wife had left for Davao.

Police had earlier said they are looking into property dispute or love triangle as possible motives in the incident since Daniel allegedly has a new lover.

The suspects did not make any confession during interrogation, according to Quijano.

Despite this, Quijano said they filed the cases after gathering evidence and statements from witnesses linking the duo to the crime.

“It’s up to the fiscal to appreciate the case or the complaint, what is important is that we have identified them and filed the case,” Quijano said.

Quijano said Daniel will be subject for release from custody after it was not established when the victim killed.

The foreigner’s camp also requested a preliminary investigation. They were given 10 days, the Valencia police chief added.

Quijano said they applied for a search warrant on Daniel’s car Friday, July 22, to check if they could gather other evidence that could help them in the investigation.

The couple has two daughters aged seven and 10 and are under the custody of the victim’s sister.

Daniel has yet to be reached for comment.

He has not admitted to doing it.  They have linked the duo to the crime.  Could easily be the new gf getting rid of the competition, no? Jealous Filipinas know no boundaries!

People fall out of love all of the time. Do the right thing if you don't want to be married any more for F's sake.

This is really sad.  Only a person who is really deranged would do this to the mother of his two daughters.  I feel so bad for the daughters, having two of my own, of similar ages.

The evidence seems strong.  She wrote a letter saying something was up.  Maybe just a question of who actually did the deed and who was the accessory?

Playing Defense Attorney here:

The victim wrote a letter before the event, suggesting to a discerning investigator that she actually went looking for trouble and was already in a confrontational frame of mind.

The foreigner turned himself in, suggesting that he may be trying to clear his name.  A guilty person may be more inclined to try and run.

The helper was told not to report.  This suggests the foreigner knew something was not right and did not want a nosy maid, loyal to his ex, roaming about the place.  There are many possibilities as to the maid's motives for testifying.

The foreigner's new gf had the motive of losing her position as "next lady of the house" which may give her motive to take out the competition.

There may have been an accident and a foolish attempt to bury the body without investigation.

There may have been unsubs that will surface sometime in the future.

While the evidence seems strong that the foreigner knew something about the death of his ex-wife, we do not know what he knew and we hope he has a good lawyer.  We also hope he was not the killer.  Anecdotally, I have known so many foreigners killed by Philippine nationals and other foreigners that it boggles the mind.  Yet I only know of one foreigner, a former member here, who actually killed a Filipina.  Additionally, there was one US servicemen in the news who killed a ladyboy.  That's pretty low statistically.

We hope the Philippines will use the standard of innocent until proven guilty.

Yeah but.....

If he wouldn't have been in the Philippines he would not have married her and thus she would not have been where she was killed.  If he had stayed in his own country she would still be alive.

Just like a road accident.  The foreigner is guilty of causing the accident, always.  :89:

Sorry to be the cynic but a few from the " authorities"will look at the house assessing its value, knowing that Valencia is a high end area and conclude he was guilty first. Based on the fact he was non filipino ( and its a filipina whos dead ) an perhaps slightly wealthy ( although there are very very old rotting houses in Valencia due to the specific climate  there)

Not in the same context but remember when the flight attendant died in Makati on New Years and the 12 who were at the party were all charged with murder and rape. Paraded before cameras as the guilty party... and then later case dropped, case closed and a small admission that they didnt do it.

Justice and following established rules of law in the Philippines... hmmm its never exactly clear cut.

The Negros Chronicie just published is speculating the house boy maybe did it because he is supposedly also missing. A beat up by the paper but if true another angle for the police to follow up.
