Slain Cop’s Wife Says Husband Told Her That Supt Marcos Threatened Him Over Mayor Espinosa Killing

Mylene Son, wife of slain cop, Police Chief Insp. Jesus “Jim” Son, said that her husband told her that CIDG Region 8 Director Supt. Marvin Marcos threatened to kill him. The cop’s widow is set to appear in the Senate hearing this Monday, December 5, after she accepted the invitation of Senator Panfilo ‘Ping’ Lacson, chair of on public order and dangerous drugs.

In an exclusive interview with Inquirer published this Sunday, December 4, Mylene Son said that on the eve of September 15, 2016, her husband, PC/Insp. Jesus Son somehow gave her a hint about what can happen to him. The next day, September 16, he was shot dead driving his Isuzu Crosswind in Barangay Pilit, Santa Fe town in Leyte at around 9:55 a.m.

“Baka hanggang ngayon o bukas na lang ang buhay ko. (Maybe my life will end today or tomorrow).” Police Chief Insp. Jesus “Jim” Son allegedly told his wife on the night before he was ambushed, as told by Mylene Son, who noted that his husband referred to Supt. Marvin Marcos as the one who had direct death threat against him.

“Mainit daw sa kanya si Supt. Marcos kasi hindi niya ginawa ang inuutos sa kanya na ‘project.’ Gusto daw tignan kung hanggang saan talaga ang tapang ng asawa ko (My husband said Marcos was mad at him because he did not comply with the project assigned to him. He said Marcos wanted to see how far his courage will bring him.” She added.

Mylene Son noted that the project is to have an asset who could kill (Albuera, Leyte Mayor Rolando) Espinosa for a fee of P500,000. But because the late mayor was then under the Witness Protection Program of the DOJ (Department of Justice), his close relative and friend advised him not to pursue it for the fear that he might ended up being a fall guy.
