After a very long wait I have received information that Tim Kaufman, the alleged murderer of David Balmer and his girlfriend has boarded a plane at LAX and is in flight to Manila as I write this. He is being escorted by Philippine law enforcement officials. At this time we do not know where he will be incarcerated. This will be updated as further information is received. No doubt the local news media will be all over this when he arrives in country.
Tim has been claiming his innocence since day one so it now appears that he will have his day in court to plead his case.
UPDATE FROM A SOURCE:
TK was transferred earlier into a facility in LA. Now that the escorting party is in LA the marshal's service brought him to LAX for the PAL flight to MNL. There would be no announcements of this by the US Marshal's Service or INTERPOL or PAL for security concerns. Ditto for the arrival in MNL they would keep things quiet until he is safely in a holding cell somewhere. My two guesses are Camp Aguinaldo or Camp Crame.
Well, for all I know he might be here already but information is difficult to obtain. Guess we have to be patient.
