A magician Allan De Paz (stage name Alakim) who was known on television as a finalist on Pilipinas Got Talent–Season I is now caught in a deadly mystery that left his wife dead and him a murder suspect.
Based on De Paz’s statement to the police, his wife Maricar shot herself in the chest when they were having an argument in their Honda CRV at around 3 a.m. on Tuesday.
The bullet pierced her heart and exited through the glass window at the back of the vehicle.
De Paz, 31, rushed his wife to Marikina Valley Hospital, where doctors pronounced her dead upon arrival.
Lopez said De Paz suffered a wound on his hand purportedly in his attempt to stop his wife from shooting herself.
Police are investigating to see if there are any inconsistencies in De Paz’ story. Since he was so close to the crime, investigators have ruled him a suspect.
