Ruben Ecleo out on bail. Ecleo was the leader of a cult which revered him as a reincarnated Messiah, even after the bloody gunfight which accompanied his arrest on suspicion of murdering his wife. One million pesos (about $18,000) bail was granted, ostensibly for “health reasons,” though Ecleo’s health seems well enough for him to even run for mayor, despite the standing charges against him. “Joseph Estrada syndrome.” Heh.
