    US Marine Private Joseph Pemberton has been summoned to appear in a Philippines' court Monday Oct 20th, over the killing of a transgender sex worker, 'Jennifer' Jeffrey Laude, Sunday.

    The marine, one of 3,000 US troops in the Philippines for military exercises, is currently in the custody of military authorities on a US warship docked in Olongapo City, where the killing took place. Police say Pemberton was the last person to see Laude when they booked into a hotel. Laude's body was later found with cuts, extensive bruising and bite marks. His/her cause of death's been determined as asphyxia by drowning.

    Pemberton faces life if found guilty. The hearing is part of the process that will help prosecutors decide if charges should be brought. It could take weeks or months.

    The article I posted in the other thread from AFP names the marine as Private First Class Joseph Pemberton.

    ETA: It also gives a different cause of death, asphyxiation by drowning, with victim covered in cuts, scratches and bites. I'll just link article here and not the other thread, so as not to confuse things more.

    ETA: He's been summoned to a hearing Monday Oct 20th. No response from military or embassy officials yet.

    So from reports so far it sounds like he completely lost it when he realised she was transgender :facepalm: The poor woman - it sounds like a very vicious attack :

    Witnesses say Pemberton, 19, met Laude, 26, at a nightclub and did not know she was transgender until they were alone together in a hotel room at the Celzone Lodge, where she was found strangled to death shortly after.

    Wanna bet he is in the US already? And that he will be found "not guilty" by a "proper" American court?

    I already saw it happening in the murder of Teo Peter.

    ^ I am sorry, you cannot be that naive to believe that. Mark my words, he will walk unpunished. Good ol' US bullying the rest of the world.

    Do you know about the Haditha killings?

    Or how else would a guy killing 16 people, 9 of which were children, would only get life in prison, and not the death penalty?

    Or get 8 years in prison for:

    Examples are countless.
