Reuniting with their families in the Philippines, seeing their smiles, and feeling their hugs are so precious for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW). Imagine not seeing your kids growing up or not celebrating special occasions with them, that’s what every OFW had to endure.
The supposed happy reunion of Reandro Molino and his family in the Philippines turned out to the worst after he was found with stabbed wounds in a hotel room in Saudi Arabia.
When the body of the OFW was found, he was already lifeless.
Molino’s wife identified only as Susan said that she had communicated with her before the incident. According to Susan, her husband confessed that he is somewhat feeling weak and had flu-like symptoms after getting the second jab of COVID-19 vaccine.
Reandro was quick to get the vaccine in hopes of returning to the Philippines and seeing his family. But on May 18, the OFW talked to his wife and confessed that he has a problem. Reandro didn’t give much detail about it.
On that same day, the manager of Reandro called Susan informing her that Reandro passed away after acquiring a stab in the neck.
“He told me that my husband’s body was covered in blood, and he had been stabbed in the neck with a knife. His message saying, ‘Please wait’ had a different tone for me,” says Susan.
“I was really surprised because he had made plans. Our children will celebrate their birthdays soon,” she added.
According to the sister of Reandro, there’s a huge possibility that her brother’s death was thoroughly planned.
“Their initial report was unclear. Reandro can’t do that to himself,” says Melchi Montecarlos, sister of Reandro.
There are no known enemies of Reandro and in fact, he was known to be the best safety technician for his excellent job in Saudi.
Susan, meanwhile, is asking for help from the government.
“Mr. President, we need your help because it is difficult to reach out to agencies, they are not answering our concerns,” says Susan.
The embassy in Saudi is waiting for confirmation from the Saudi police regarding the cause of death of the Filipino.
