WATCH Heartbreaking Confrontation of Grab Driver’s Widow & Killer

For the first time, the widow of Grab driver Gerardo Maquidato Jr. and his killer, Narc Delemios, came face-to-face at Camp Crame. Delemios asked for forgiveness from his victim’s family but his emotional widow could only weep and ask why the suspect had to kill her husband when all Delemios wanted was money.

Confessed killed Narc Tulod Delemios admitted that all he wanted was money from Grab driver Gerardo Maquidato Jr. However, according to Delemios, Maquidato tried to fight back so he was forced to kill him.

This was his reply when Maquidato’s widow asked him why he killed her husband.

“Bakit mo ginawa ‘yun? Alam mo gusto n’ya bumalik sa pamilya n’ya diba?” she cried. “Nagpipilit syang kumawala sayo eh, bakit mo ginawa yun sa asawa ko?”

“Alam mo gusto niyang bumalik sa pamilya niya. Alam ko ang iniisip niya paano siya makaaalis sa ‘yo para makauwi sa amin. Ang dami nyang pangarap sa mga anak namin sa pamilya namin bakit mo ginawa?” asked Brenda Maquidato.

“Alam ko po na mahirap akong mapatawad ng pamilya ng driver. Hindi ko po alam na siya ay good Samaritan,” Delemios said. “Humihingi po ako ng pasensya pero inagaw po niya ang baril. Pera lang po ang habol ko pero lumaban po siya kaya ko po nagawa yung krimen.”

However, the police said Maquidato could not have fought back. He was killed with a single shot at the back of the head execution style so how could he fight back and try to grab the gun.

Delemios surrendered to authorities after his live-in girlfriend confessed that it was her phone used in booking that fateful Grab car ride.
