General Angelo Reyes

MANILA, Philippines - A former military chief accused of embezzling at least $1 million from the armed forces died of a gunshot wound Tuesday in what witnesses described as an apparent suicide at his mother's grave. Retired Gen. Angelo Reyes, 65, was pronounced dead on arrival at a Manila hospital from a single gunshot wound in the chest after visiting the grave. Health Secretary Enrique Ona refused to immediately confirm that Reyes had committed suicide, saying he was awaiting autopsy results. Witnesses interviewed by DZBB radio station at the cemetery said they saw Reyes send his children to his car before a single shot rang out. - JIM GOMEZ
