Yes, almost all of us have heard the mother and son's brutal killing under the hands of Jonel Nuezca, a disgruntled policeman who was caught on-cam last December 2020 for the slaying of Sonya and Frank Gregorio in the province of Tarlac.
Sadly, a year and a half later, many might have missed the case of April Mae Ege, a 22-year-old woman that was shot to death by her father, who was also a policeman, at their residence in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.
Police Staff Sergeant Levi Ege, the victim's father, wasn't exactly a role model to his family. According to his family, he was always drunk, which often led to him being angry all the time, endangering his loved ones.
As stated by his live-in partner, Annabelle Acebo, whenever Levi was drunk, he always threatened his family, uttering the words, "I will kill anyone who complained or did something wrong in my house."
Clearly, he didn't know how to manage his drinking.
On July 7, 2019, Levi's daughter, April, finally had enough of her father's antics. She confronted him and scolded Levi about his drinking issues. Unfortunately, Levi did not consider his daughter's actions and responded most brutally by shooting his daughter in the head.
After the ruthless incident, Annabelle immediately called the police. Earlier, she was in the bathroom when she overheard the argument between Levi and April. As soon as Annabelle heard a gunshot that came from their living room, she immediately ran to the living room. There, she saw April lying down unconscious with a gunshot wound to her head.
Afterward, the Dumaguete police quickly apprehended Levi, who also admitted to killing his daughter using his service pistol.
Following protocol, the authorities confiscated the Glock 17 handgun used by Levi. They also collected evidence and reviewed the crime scene, where they saw a 9-millimeter deformed slug and 9-millimeter empty shell.
Initially, the victim's family couldn't believe what happened between the father and daughter. After all, how could a father kill his own daughter? Even to us, this case might seem unbelievable.
According to the family's statement to the police, there has been an instance where Levi had threatened to kill his entire family. However, they were afraid to report to the authorities.
Consequently, for Levi, his family filed a parricide case against him for his daughter's merciless killing. He also received an administrative case from the PNP.
April Mae Ege was a proud graduate of Negros Oriental State University with a degree in Business Administration. Her life was cut short because she was a responsible daughter to her father by pleading with him to stop drinking.
