Updated on April 27 – Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez said a police officer has approached him to discuss his observations of his findings on the day of Mrs Etong’s shooting. JS Gonzalez said he would forward his story to the National Bureau of Investigation.

You can read the details from JS Gonzalez here.

Updated on April 18 – The NBI said they want to put every witness under the polygraph test, better known as the lie detector test.

These witnesses will be subjected to the lie detector test – Failon’s driver Glen Polan, houseboy Pacifico Apacible, nanny Wilfreda Bollester, and maid Carlita Morbos, Mr. Failon and his sister-in-law Pamela Arteche.

Police said Ted Failon tested negative for gunpowder residue on his hand. Mrs Etong also tested negative for gunpowder residue. Police said a gunpowder test can be inconclusive because Mrs Etong underwent several medical procedures and surgeries when she was warded. The medical procedures may have affected the subsequent test for gunpowder residue.

Joy Tan and Jackie Bartolome are close friends to the late Mrs Etong. They said “Trina” told them she had used up all the money in the couple’s time deposit account. Trina was afraid to let Ted know. Trina appeared depressed and had spoken about suicide. Joy Tan and Jackie Bartolome said they did not take it seriously as they thought Trina was a religious woman and would not resort to suicide.

Ted Failon, news anchor of ABS-CBN in Philippines, had a tragic incident on Wednesday, April 15. Failon’s wife has a gunshot wound after an incident in their home in Quezon City. Failon alleged his wife, Trinidad Arteche Etong Failon, 44, shot herself. Police will investigate and confirm if Mrs Failon suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Ted Failon’s real name is Mario Teodoro Failon Etong.

Trinidad Arteche Etong Failon allegedly left a suicide note for her husband in which she apologized for her action.

Failon’s household help cleaned the bathroom where Trinidad was found with her gunshot wound. Ted Failon removed the gun and put it in the bedroom. The scene was disturbed before police arrived.

There are conflicting reports on what happened. The bullet entered in Trinidad’s left temple but the gun was found on the right side of her body.

There were reports that Mrs Etong was shot in her husband’s vehicle during a quarrel but Failon denied this. Failon’s vehicle was cleaned up the same day, according to source 4.

Police said Ted Failon is not a suspect yet. Trinidad Etong’s condition now is bad. She is clinically dead (brain dead) according to news source 3.

We pray for Trinidad Etong and Ted Failon.

Trinidad Etong, RIP.

  1. I have a theory on what happened and sana wala naman magalit or ma-offend na parents dito, this is my theory lang naman based on the facts of the case:

    Hindi kaya yung anak nila ang nakabaril accidentally sa mama nya? Its possible na he was playing with the gun and he thought it was not loaded?

    The reason I thought of this is because of the ff:

    1. I cannot think of any other reason as to why everyone in the household was willing to cover up what happened. Sa totoo lang, miski gaano ako ka-loyal sa boss ko o kahit sa kaibigan ko pa, di ko kaya magsinungaling para pagtakpan na mamatay tao sila.
    To the point na naglinis pa ang maid and nagpacarwash pa ang driver– isa lang ang naiisip kong dahilan. Naaawa sila sa bata.

    2. Nakapasok pa si Ted sa show and being the professional newscaster that he is, if he received a phone call na nagkulong wife nya sa CR, puwede naman maghintay yun ng 20 minutes para matapos nya ang show, bakit sha nagmadaling umuwi? Hindi kaya anak nya ang tumawag or someone in the house and told him na nabaril ng anak nya yung mom?

    3. Even ABS CBN is willing to do a media black out for him? Why would they do this if they did not know what really happened? Probably Ted told them the truth that the child did it. By 11 AM, Ted was in the hospital na and ABSCBN was calling the hospital looking for him, meaning they knew what happened and still they were willing to do a media black-out, I dont think its for Ted but I believe they did it for the kid.

    4. Kasama ni Ted ang SISTER ng asawa nya sa car when they rushed the wife to the hospital at 11 AM, the sister seems to be in the house already when Ted arrived kasi the neighbor saw her with Ted and she was crying when they rushed to the hospital. If you were the sister, would you not scream at Ted at the hospital if Ted shot your sister like that? Why would you keep him company?

    5. Noli De Castro said in the news “What happened is not what you think happened” meaning he knows everyone will point at TED as the gunman when in fact, it may be the kid.

    6. The Letter– as if a child wrote it and was saying sorry to the dad. Kaya may endless PO dun sa letter. They might have added the MAMA at the end to make it look like a suicide note. Kung makikita nyo yung Mama sa dulo ng letter parang nanginig ang kamay nung nagsulat– baka inadd na lang kasi nila yun and wala dapat dun yung word na mama.

    7. Negative si Ted Failon sa paraffin test, and all of the help and driver. This means wala sa kanila ang nagpaputok ng gun. He even said ” I do not have to defend myself” regarding allegations na sha ang pumatay. He said “just ask my in laws” ibig sabihin alam nya na alam ng in laws nya na di sha ang pumatay. Kung ikaw ang pumatay, automatic alam mo pagdududahan ka ng in laws mo agad pero sha sigurado sha na ipagtatanggol sha ng in laws nya. Bakit? Kasi malamang alam nilang lahat sino ang aksidenteng nakabaril-

    8. They placed the child out of the house when the police came, this is probably to protect him/her.

    9. Everything happened sa room nung kid, if Ted shot her or if the mom killed herself, why there??? Puwede naman sa sarili nilang kuwarto, why pa sa room ng bata? I believe the kid accidentally shot the mom while the mom was in the kid’s room. When the kid saw blood on her mom, he probably dragged her sa CR kasi di ba ang bata pag may sugat, automatic sinasabi natin we have to wash the wound so I believe the kid may have thought kailangan i-wash kaya andun yung body nung mom when Ted found her.

    This is what I believe really happened. Kung ako parent, I will also do this to protect my child kung ganun ang nangyari. Miski alam kong bawal linisin ang crime site, baka linisin ko na din nga para lang maprotect ko sha dahil mawawala na nga ang asawa ko, pati anak ko mawawala din. Hindi naman t**** si Ted para di nya malaman na bawal maglinis ng crime scene. The fact the full support sa kanya ang buong kasambahay at pamilya ng asawa means he must be innocent talaga and they are all protecting someone else— the child.

  2. Sa pag kaka intindi nyu ganun ba katanga un driver at maid para linisin ang toilet at sasakyan ng walang utos ni Ted at matalino sila sa di pag sasalita nun tinatanong ng mga pulis hanggat walang abogado na bigay ni Ted?At bobo din ba si Ted para ipa Cremate un wife nya ng gnun kabilis?At ni di nga malinaw kun anu un position nun namatay nun nakita.Ang pagkakasabi naka upo,okay kun naka upo possible bang un baril ay ganun kalayo sa kamay after mag baril s sintido?knowing cya ay left handed at sa kanang sintido ang tama,at pag ginamit sa pag hawak ng isang bagay un hindi dominant hand mo natural na un kapit mo o hawak ay sobra dahil hindi ka ganun ka comfortable na ganun mo kahawak un isang bagay.At ni di na detalye ng pulis un bawat oras, ang pag tawag ke Ted ng Mrs nya ayon s kanya,pag uwi nya na di tinapos un program,un pag katagpo sa Mrs.nya na patay s banyo,un pag dting sa hospital , anu ang findinds ng Doktor agad dahil din sa utos ni Ted.so mas madali nga isipin na suicide di ba?knowing n wala nga naman isang kamag anak nun asawa ang lumabas para magsalita ng alinlangan,at knowing din mula s bibig ni Ted during Eulogy ng Mrs. nya kun ganu kalaki ang utang na loob ng mga kamag anak nun Mrs nya s kanila,at knowing n wala sila sa pinangyarihan.so ang dali sabihin na suicide,Sa mga forensic expert naman it doesnt mean na walang galos,pasa,sugat o bukol e suicide.di lahat ng namamatay nakakalaban,pnu kun wala ka time na mag react.at un isa pa malaki daw si ted para cya ang bumaril base s trajectory nun bala,bkit di ba pwede ibaril un ng nakatapat lan kailangan bang pag bumaril k unat ang kamay mo,bkit anu b un baril na ginamit?

  3. Ted Failon is a well-known person and a reporter, respetadong komentarista sa larangan ng pagbabalita. Bata pa ko “Ted Failon” na yan… One thing that puzzles me much eh reporter ka and suicide ang nangyari at asawa mo pa, ang biktima, magagawa mo bang linisin o ipalinis yung crime scene? Sabi nyang ayaw nyang ma-traumatized ang 12 year old daughter nila; He could have done any other way besides that. He could have the daughter be taken cared of by other relative or closest friend para di makita yung blood etc… The daughter could also stay with the mom in hospital, or any otehr better way, just don’t clean-up the crime scene…Masyadong malakas ang suspetsa ng mga tao sa ginawa nyang yun. Madami pang naglalabasan na iba ang statement nya compared to statement ng mga helpers. Suspect talaga silang lahat inside the house until magkaroon ng resolution, we have to understand and respect the law. Kahit Ted Failon pa sya.

  4. To ixxhi:

    In case you have forgotten, Ted is not a saint. Broadcasters are humans like us.

  5. MATAGAL na akong sumusubaybay sa nangyari. sana po di po muna kayo manghusga hanggat di pa tapos ang imbestigasyon. Codolence to Family etong. Sana lumabas na ang katotohanan.

  6. 1.Ang sa akin lang bakit sa letter nang asawa bakit siya nag-apologize nang todong-todo ano bang kasalanan niya, that will lead to her alleged pagkamatay.

  7. did the police conduct a simple lie detection test?

  8. sa 22o lang hah..bkit papatayin ni ted ang asawa nya kung alam nya na makakacra i2 sa image bilang news reporter?..kung tlgang galit sya sa asawa nya at gus2 nya i2ng ipapatay edi dpat nag-hire na lang sya ng killer..common sense lang nman dba?…kung tlgang matalino c ted alam nya ang mga consequences kung papatayin nya nag asawa nya..pati mga anak nila naniniwla na inosente tatay nila kung cla nga alam nilang wlang ksalanan ang tatay nila..cnu ba tayo pra sbihing c ted nga ang pumatay..d na kayo nahiya sa nangyayari ngaun sa pamilya ni ted?..wag muna ntin syang husgahan lalo na ta kamamatay pa lang ni miss trina..RIP..Condolence na rin sa pamilya mr.ted…makamit nyo na sna ang justice and I STRONGLY BELIEVE NA HINDI NYA PINATAY SI MS.TRINA!….

  9. hindi lang sisibakin sa imbestigation halata naman yun kinampihan pa mahiya naman kayo.

  10. dont worry ted “wag ka lng mawalan ng pag-asa marami taong nasalikod mo lng.I WILL PRAY FOR YOU”just pray for him.”my kasabihan nga na mananaig din ang katotohanan

  11. napansin ko lang na ted failon said kita nya maraming dugo sa sugat thru and thru sa ulo ang asawa at nakahiga bakit sa video nakasandal, bakit pinalinis ang lugar at sinabihan wag munang magsalita ang mga kasama sa bahay sa nangyari. ano po kaya talaga ang dahilan, ganung di naman po pala sila naghihikahos sa buhay. kahabag habag po sa kabila ng katayuan nila sa buhay, nakaisip ang isang asawa ng isang ted failon magpakamatay pa

  12. unang una yung mga polis na yan dapat yan tanggalin sa serbisyo mga abusado,parang mga creminal yung hinuhuli na mga kapatid. ano bayan sila walang puso.nasaktan pa yung pamelya ididiin pa nila ng tudo dapat sa mga polis na yan sa jolo i assign para sa mga milf doon mga walang hiya.

  13. sana wag tayo mag husga agad kc kawawa naman kung inosente un tao. pare pareho natin d alam ang 22o kaya mas makabu2ti na antayin matapos ang imbistigasyon. at nakita na ng mga pulis un tama ng bala sa wall ng banyo. kaya obius na dun ng yari ang insidente.wag natin husgahan c ted at ang mga tao nasasankot. hangat d pa tapos ang imbistigasyon.un ang tama at makataong gawin.

  14. *sa banyo nga ba binaril o nag baril ang asawa ni TED? di kaya sa ibang lugar sa haus?

    *Bakit nilinis agad ang crime scene at ang vehicle?
    nsan yung mga ginamit na pinanglinis? di ba magagamit na evidence or exhibit yung mga pamunas na may dugo para mapatunayan yung claim ng mga maid na nilinis at may nilinis talaga sila. baka naman kasi walang nilinis.

  15. Grabe naman kung pinatay ni Ted and asawa nia. Pero para sa akin talagang nag suicide yun. May nagawa cia na hindi matanggap ni Ted. So naisip nia para maiwasan ang kahihiyan ginawang mag suicide. Pero di nia naisip na mas magkakagulo at mapapahiya si Ted pag cia nagpakamatay.tsk,tsk,tsk. And sa mga pulis na dumampot sa kapatid ni Trina, grabe sila! Parang suspect na talaga ang ginawa nila sa tao. Dapat kasuhan yang mga yan.

  16. kung nagsuicide and isang tau kailangan tawagin ang police and huwag galawin ang baril and huwag linisin ang crime scene that makes you a really strong suspect!!! ted is a murderer.

  17. haaaayy kawawa naman ung wife ni ted failon walang

    kakampi she’s so helpless kse everyone in the family

    including her own siblings ay kampi kay ted failon.

    pati ang giant broadcasting company that he works for

    biased kung mag report. pati dzmm pati new era din

    they’re all protecting SOMEONE HERE (obviously not

    trina). pam, trina’s sister claims she was witness to

    the writing of the suicide note! ano un parang “oy

    i’ll write this letter ha be my witness” IMO its not

    EVEN a suicide note its just an apology letter na may

    halong takot sa asawa niya i wonder why she seems so

    terrified of him! tapos ang new era only called pnp

    hourssss after the incident. ted went back home to

    see his daughter daw??? diba instinct mo is to stay

    by her side until she’s stable? maiisip mo pa bang

    umuwi nun??? ONE NEED NOT BE A CSI GUY TO FIGURE THIS

    ALL OUT DUH

  18. sana lumabas ang totoo bago may madamay na inusenta, kawawa din naman

  19. opinyon lang nman, yung paggamit ng asawa ni ted failon na “po” dun sa alleged suicide letter eh I think nakagawian lang nila sigurong tawagan. even me, I’m a mother of 3 and I always talk with my husband with “po” also. It’s not that nagpo “po” ako at hindi dapat kasi asawa ko pero nakagawian namin kasi gusto lang nmin gayahin kami ng mga anak namin. And it was effective so kahit din husband ko nagpo “po” sakin pag nakikipag usap. naging part yun ng pag uusap naming mag anak and hindi nman siguro pwedeng tawaging “hindi dapat”. sometimes, sweet lang pakinggan.

  20. Kawawa naman ang asawa ni Ted Failon..the question is Why did Ted said the word”po” in the letter is “pa” not “po” but Kaye and the housemaid said it was “po” and Kaye said “Ganun lang talaga magsalita si Mama!” as what the housemaid said too.
