He was angry at his estranged wife, so he made sure she got the message.
Three days before she died, 7-year-old Angel Manliclic prevented her alleged killer—her own father—from committing suicide.
In exchange, he allegedly brutally stabbed his daughter to death and posted her photo on Facebook—all in order to provoke his estranged wife.
Mark Alvin Manliclic, a 31-year-old Filipino father, was apparently enraged that his wife had moved away and stopped communicating with him on Facebook. So when he got into an argument with her over the phone Tuesday, he allegedly took to Facebook to show her the proof of his anger: his savage murder of their daughter, Angel Mark Cathlene Manliclic.

Quezon City police allege that Manliclic posted a brutal photo of the victim to Facebook in order to get his wife’s attention—along with, some Facebook readers claimed, a horrifying video of the murder itself.

Manliclic, who was jobless, allegedly grew incensed when his wife refused to return to the Philippines after going to Canada to work. News site ABS-CBN News reported that Manliclic’s wife had left the country last May, and that she had not disclosed her plans to her husband for fear of her own life.
Filipino news site Tempo reported that he had previously threatened to kill his daughter if his wife did not return. After Manliclic confessed to the murder to his aunt, police found the body of the victim lying face down inside the house, where she had been killed as a result of multiple stab wounds in the neck, abdomen, and back.
Police speculated that Manliclic might have been drunk at the time of the murder.
He was taken into custody and now faces parricide charges.
In response, Filipino Netizens have created a Facebook protest of their own—one calling for the maximum penalty for Manliclic.
