Louisville Asks Police to Ease ‘Stress’

Eliodoro Ya

The murder of Eleazar Chan has rocked the small village in the north. His nephew, Eliodoro Ya, is also the chairman of Louisville and tonight he is imploring the police department to solve this crime as soon as possible because villagers have lost their sense of security.


Eliodoro Ya, Chairman, Louisville Village

“As an affected family member, a villager, as a chairman….not only me, I think all of the community, it is the first time like a murder like this happen. I mean you could only see it in movies. I think we all feel unsafe because majority of the people here, late at night, they sleep with their doors open, they leave their tools and equipment outside of the house because we are safe. But with this, there are many people that will think it twice to sleep with their door or with their windows open. We are imploring the officials, the police, whoever is in charged to please have this settled and once in a while send some mobile patrols to the village. The police station is far and sometimes when you call, it takes like three hours for a mobile to reach. But we are stressing out, we want this to be solved; we want the village to feel safe again—not only for me, it is for all the villagers; for the kids you know. Maybe this might be traumatizing for all of us, but hopefully with the help of the police, it will fade away.”


While there have been spotting of suspected drug planes and random acts of violence, the village as remained free of murders for years.
