Philippines Gunman Photographed

“People fear death even more than pain. It’s strange that they fear death. Life hurts a lot more than death. At the point of death, the pain is over. Yeah, I guess it is a friend.”~ Jim Morrison

This is the craziest thing I have ever heard of.

Reynaldo Dagsa was a Filipino politician and a corporal for the Philippine Army Reserve Command.

But this is a odd death post. He died on New Year’s Day 2011 while celebrating with his family.

And what makes it so odd is that it was an assassination by a person claiming the act to be in retribution for being shot in the head by persons associated with Reynaldo Dagsa during a shootout months earlier.

The assassination was captured in a photograph taken by Reynaldo Dagsa himself. maxresdefault

He gathered his family together for a family portrait, not being aware that his killer was looming just feet behind them, and the co-conspirator not far away either.

When Reynaldo Dagsa took the photograph, the flash went off…. so did the gun of the assassination, which struck Dagsa in the head.

The photograph was surrendered to the local police and the shooter was identified as Arnel Buenaflor. He was arrested and taken into police custody two days later.
