Hostage-Taking: The Unfortunate Death of Dexter Balala (2002)
On May 31, 2002, a supposedly typical day at the Philtranco Pasay City Bus Terminal turned wicked when a drug-crazed man named Diomedes Talbo suddenly grabbed Dexter Balala, a four-year-old boy, and held him, hostage, with a 10-inch double-bladed knife pointed to his neck.
Coming from a two-week vacation in the province of Camarines Sur, the young boy was about to ride a bus with his mother, Salvacion Balala, going to Pampanga when the suspect grabbed him away and seized his custody.
