Last Saturday, August 18, 2012, a light aircraft crashed into the sea near the central island of Masbate. One of its passengers was DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo.
Yesterday, Robredo’s body was finally found and was recovered around 8:35 a.m. After the recovery, Robredo was taken back to his family. President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III personally escorted the remains back to Naga City, Robredo’s hometown. Upon landing in Naga City’s domestic airport, the remains of Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo carried by members of the Philippine National Police (PNP). It was a sad day for Robredo’s family and friends as well as the country. Flags were at half mast yesterday as respect to Robredo.
