SOCO: Was this father killed by his own son?


Posted at Aug 19 2016 09:20 PM

The family of the late Antonio P. Antonio gave ABS-CBN SOCO a video CD that contains important information about a crime committed in their family.

One of Antonio’s sons, Vladimir, is a witness to his father's kindness. “Maayos po ang buhay naming lahat. Pinalaki niya kami ng maayos… walang half-brother o half-sister," he said.

The elder Antonio, also known as "Apa," taught all of his children to manage their businesses. But among them, his son Nelson was his most trusted one.

“Si Nelson pinakamalapit kay Papa. Binigyan siya ng sariling bahay. Siya ang pinaka-spoiled sa amin. Siya ang president ng kumpanya,” said Apa's daughter Xialen.

But their father-son relationship started to deteriorate. Nelson soon became an estranged son.

On September 11, 2013, Apa was shot dead. Some witnesses said it was his son Nelson who killed him.

To this day, the Antonio family is still crying for justice.

What could be the suspect's motive for killing Apa? Was Nelson really the man behind the crime?

Follow the investigation this Saturday on "SOCO", 4 p.m. after "Ipaglaban Mo" on ABS-CBN.
