US Marine PFC Pemberton Once Was One Of A Few Good Men

Written By: Rex Solano - Oct• 30•14

There is something amiss about the murder case of transgender Jeffrey “Jennifer “Laude. The culprit in the murder case was pointing to the alleged suspect US Marine PFC Pemberton as the killer based on the testimony of the witnesses. However, I am not as comfortable as anyone who would suggest that PFC Pemberton is the person of interest here. I had doubts with the principal witness’ testimony before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations on how the murder of Jennifer really occurred at the Celzone Lodge on Magsaysay Boulevard. Let us refresh our memories and re-enact the sequences of event leading to the murder of Jennifer.

On Saturday night of October 11, transgenders Jeffrey ” Jennifer” Laude and Mark Clarence “Barbie” Gelviro were having ice tea at the Ambyanz Disco bar. They met the four Marines at the said bar and one of them identified as PFC Pemberton hit it off with Jennifer and agreed to go out heading to Celzone lodge. According to Barbie’s testimony, Jennifer asked if she could accompany them to Celzone Lodge in order to watch and protect her friend Jennifer. But one of the reasons Barbie followed them to Celzone lodge was with the intent and one purpose in mind; to steal the 25,000 pesos that the sister of Jennifer claimed was in her possession, before she was killed and now was missing. At around 10:45 PM, the CCTV footage was showing PFC Pemberton, Jennifer and Barbie checked in at Room 1. But while inside Room 1, Jennifer told Barbie to leave because PFC Pemberton might suspect that they were transgender. Then at 11:30, Barbie came out of Room 1, and while going downstairs, Barbie met the Filipino guest, supposedly an acquaintance and joined him in Room 5. How strange!

Now let us read the testimony of Elias Galamos, the cashier at Celzone lodge and also among the witnesses, told the Senate committee and I quote that ” he saw PFC Pemberton go out of Room 1, leaving the lodge less than an hour after he checked in with Laude.

Galamos said he had noticed that Pemberton left the door of Room 1 open, prompting him to check if there was still somebody inside. Upon entering the room, he noticed that someone was still inside the restroom thus he decided to close the door and leave.
Galamos came back after 30 minutes to check on the remaining guest of the room but nobody answered when he knocked on the door.
The witness said he decided to enter the room to see if the guest was still there and discovered that Laude was unconscious, the victim’s head submerged in the toilet bowl. He then went to Room 5 and told Gelviro what he saw.”

Now the questions we all asked:

If indeed PFC Pemberton killed Jennifer, why did the front desk not hear any screaming, commotion, any loud bangs, or even a thud to indicate that a murder was taking place, when in fact the front desk is right across or nearby Room 1?
If a person commits a crime, why would he leave the door open, did not even suggest any such criminal behavior to cover up the killing and casually walked downstairs? Or even yet, after PFC Pemberton left, Elias Galamos checked the room and he heard the sound of the water running indicating someone is still inside. Who could that be? Is Jennifer still alive or did someone go inside Room 1, kill Jennifer, then within the 30 minutes period, Elias Galamos came back to check the room and found out Jennifer was dead?

What was Barbie doing hanging around in Room 5? Who was that Filipino guest Barbie met downstairs? And when Elias Galamos reported to Barbie that Jennifer was unconscious, she quickly went to Room 1 and when she discovered Jennifer was dead, she panicked and blurted out that 25,000 pesos was missing. How did she know that the money was missing and then accosted the three Marine friends of PFC Pemberton telling them “your friend killed my friend?

The key here is to watch CCTV footage if anyone re-entered Room 1, at the time PFC Pemberton left and the time Elias Galamos checked the room 30 minutes after. It was very clear in Elias Galamos testimony that someone was still in Room 1, after PFC Pemberton left because of the sound of the water running indicating someone is still using the toilet.

We can create a scenario and establish our own investigative report or a devised version of this murder case but clearly I smelled something really fishy about this murder case. The police report indicates that stealing is the motive. Do we think PFC Pemberton will kill someone for a mere 25,000 pesos? Why would a man willingly jeopardize his military career? Or why would PFC Pemberton leave traces of evidence like the semen and 2 condoms carelessly disposed in a garbage can? I would say that PFC Pemberton was a fall guy here and has been framed. Detained now in a restricted facility inside the Army Headquarters at Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City, PFC Pemberton the accused in this murder case is presumed innocent until proven guilty and he has not formally been charged. PFC Pemberton had enlisted in the US Marine Corps as one of “ A few good men.” and I believe he still is. When the police report gathers all evidences and submit their findings, we will have a clearer picture who the real culprit is, and the killer of Jeffrey “ Jennifer” Laude in this murder case.
