    Ako ay nagpapasalamat sa madaling pagkahuli (Gun for Hire )sa di makatao na pagpatay kay Josephine B Sarmiento. Sa Pagpatay ba ay kalutasan ng lahat, Bagkos ito ang umpisa na lalong magulong buhay. Ako ay lalong umaasa na sa lalong madaling panahon ay makikilala din ang taong NAGPAPATAY kay Josephine B Sarmiento. Maraming Salamat po.
