Before the incident, the victim had even sent text messages to his superior, expressing his deep resentment with his superior.
“Oo nga na train tayo sa academy na maging matigas inside and out pero tao lng din kmi sir nasasaktan at napapagod din at buong paninilbihan ko sayo sir never man lng ako nakarinig appreciation galing sa inyo sir para ma high morale lng naman ako,” said Sularte in the text message.
(Yes, we were trained in the academy to be tough inside and out. But we are humans, we also get sick and tired. And I have worked hard for you sir. But I have never heard any appreciation from you to lift my morale.)
“Sinira nu ang career ko sir kaya wala narin ako rason para ipagpatuloy pa ito sir at kung ano man mangyari sa akin sir kargo de konsensya nu to lahat sir pati sa mga anak ko sir at sa nanay ng mga anak ko sir. Sana may lakas ka ng loob para sabihin sa mga anak ko na walang kwentang tatay ang ama ako sa knila or kung naging matino man ako sir kayo na bahala magpaliwanag sa knila. Sana masaya kana sa ginawa mo sir Mxxxxx, sir!!!,” Sularte said in some parts of text messages to his Officer before the alleged suicide.
(You ruined my career sir, so I have no reason to go on with it. Whatever happens to me, to my children and the mother of my children, all will be on your conscience, sir. I hope you have the courage to tell my children that their father is useless or if I have been a good one. You decide how you’ll explain it to them. I hope you are happy with what you’ve done Mxxxxx, sir!!!)
However, police have not yet ruled out “foul play” in the incident while they are still investigating.
