Ram Revilla’s text messages further boosted speculations that money dispute is the main motive behind his murder last Oct. 28.
A report from TV Patrol said that a forensic exam conducted by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) showed that Ram exchanged messages with his 20-year-old sister Maria Ragelyn Gail two days before he was murdered.
Ram was asking for his allowance.
His text message read, “Bigay niyo naman ang allowance ko sobra naman kayo. Sinira niyo na nga ako kay daddy tas ganyan pa. Sobra na naman yan Ga.”
Gail replied that their father, Ramon Revilla Sr., reduced their allowance to P150,000 because he was angry at their mother, Genelyn Magsaysay.
"Kaya naman binawasan ni Daddy yung allowance kasi galit na galit kay Mommy. Dapat sakto talaga yung allowance. 200k dapat allowance niyo pa rin pero dahil sa galit ni Daddy kay Mommy, ginawa niya 150k," Gail’s text message read.
Ram replied and asked her not to ruin his reputation with their dad. “Salamat. Please lang wag naman sana manira kay daddy. Pati yung sobrang past na sinakal kita pati 'yun ginamit para magalit si daddy sakin,” Ram’s text message said.
He also wants to settle differences among his siblings and mentioned that he texted Ramona, one of the suspects in the murder case.
"Malaki na tayo, magkaayos na dapat. Hindi maganda puro away. Nag-text ako kay Mara (Maria Ramona) kanina na sana maayos na lahat at magkabati-bati na tayo," his text message went on.
Gail also mentioned in her text message that their mother failed to pay their electric bill even though she already received the money to settle the account.
"Nagbigay ako kay Mommy nung money for Meralco before. Siya yung hindi nakabayad," Gail said in her text message.
How it started
A day before he was murdered, Ram sent a text message that said the rift in the family started when his younger brother, Ramon Joseph or RJ (a suspect in the murder case) sold his car at a price below its market.
Ramgen texted, "Alam ko san nag-umpisa ito, sa Strada ni Joseph. Wag na kayo mag maang-maangan pa. Sinabi ko kasi sobra mura ng benta."
The Parañaque City Police said they will submit the transcript of the text messages to the court. The CIDG used a cellular phone forensic machine to extract the text messages from Ram’s phone.
“Kung anuman po ang evaluation ng ating prosecutors na hahawak ng kaso, ibibigay po natin ang decision na iyon sa kanya,” Senior Superintendent Billy Beltran said.
