Bohol 3rd district Rep. Alexie Besas-Tutor is asking for the publicโ€™s help as police seek suspects in the shooting death of a member of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transsexual, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Allies, Nonbinary/Genderqueer + (LGBTQIA+).

“Engelbert Angela Bernaldez rest now our dear friend. Daghan ang nakurat sa panghitabo hangtod karon dili m maka tuo nga wala naka. Salamat kaayo sa imong suporta ug tabang bisan unsa pana dha andam gyud ka motabang,” said Tutor on a Facebook post.

John Engelbert Liao was shot several times on June 29 in Barangay Poblacion in Guindulman after attending an inauguration program.

She was rushed to the Governor Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital in Tagbilaran City. However, she died on Monday morning, July 4.

Guindulman Police say the motive for the killing is unknown.

Tutor called on for justice in killing of Liao, founder of 3gb community in her hometown.

“This time, I am asking all Guindulmanon nga kita magkahiusa, mo barog, dili mahadlok ug motabang tang tanan arun ma paspas ang investigation sa kaso. Unsa ang inyong nakita ug nabantayan adtong panahona, ipagawas nato na nga impormasyon. Dili ta mosugot nga dili nato mahatagan ug hustisya ang panghitabo. Dili ta inani Guindulmanon! Dili inani ang tersero distrito,” Tutor said.

“Atong ipadayon ang atong pag tabang hangtod makab-ot nato ang hustisya. Bisan unsa pa kadaghan sa kwarta ug konsensya na ang modukdok ug ang Ginoo na ang molihok, way kwarta ang maka pugong niana. Barog ta for Engel! Guindulmanon, this is our fight for justice!!! Atong konsensya, atong limpyohan,” said Tutor.
