Gonzales’ wife lost valuables in Resorts World attack
The late wife of Pampanga 3rd District Representative Aurelio Gonzales, Jr lost valuables during the Resorts World Manila attack.
This was revealed by Surigao del Sur 2nd District Representative Johnny Pimentel Wednesday (June 21) during the House probe into the deadly Resorts World attack.
Gonzales’ wife, Elizabeth Panlilio-Gonzales, suffocated during the Resorts World fire.
Gonzales told Pimentel and House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas that his wife’s valuables were missing when his family retrieved her body from the funeral home.
“According to Representative Gonzales, his wife had a watch, which is a Rolex and some jewelry, which are missing already. Aside from the watch and some jewelry, the credit cards and the ATM are also missing,” Pimentel said.
Gonzales also said P25,000 was withdrawn from his wife’s account three days after she died.
“How can that be possible? Meaning somebody used the ATM,” Pimentel asked.
Lone gunman Jessie Carlos, on June 2, breached Resorts World Manila security, fired gunshots, and set casino tables on fire.
At least 37 died, mostly due to suffocation.
