Mid-Michigan Native Gunned Down In Philippines 9-22-2010

Authorities in the Philippines said two gunmen fatally shot an American man and a Filipino woman, possibly due to the man's womanizing.
The Midland man, Steve Kindy, 41, and a Filipino woman, were killed in an ambush in the southern Philippine province of Lanao del Norte on Monday, Sept. 20, police said.
Senior police supt. Agrimero Cruz said two assailants opened fire on a passenger minibus in southern Iligan city's Mahayahay village on Monday.
Cruz said Kindy and a Filipino woman were killed and another Filipino woman was wounded. Police said the wounded woman was Kindy's girlfriend.
Iligan police officer Alibsar Daraba said Kindy was shot six times.
Police said the American's possible womanizing could have led to a motive. They were also considering a Quran-burning angle.
"We are looking at two angles. The first is if there is a connection to a statement regarding the burning of a Koran. Secondly, we are looking at a probable love triangle," said Senior Supt. Bernardo Reamon.
The incident was followed by another attack on a foreigner, a British ship captain who was shot on Tuesday while driving in Angeles City, north of Manila.
TV5 spoke with Kindy's family in Midland and they said this was his second trip to the Phillipenes this year.
Kindy first went in January and when he saw the conditions much of the children were living in, he wanted to return and find a way to help.
Family members said he returned in late August to continue his work helping orphans.
