John Consulta embarks on a new mission as he hosts GMA Network's newest true-crime anthology program “Pinoy Crime Stories.”
Produced by the award-winning team of GMA Public Affairs, Pinoy Crime Stories features the most compelling and controversial crimes in the country such as online crimes, slavery, murders, robberies, trafficking, kidnapping, abductions, rapes, and many more.
Consulta is no stranger to crime stories. He has been at the helm of the police beat and other law-enforcement agencies such as the National Bureau of Investigation, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, and Bureau of Immigration.
His bold disposition in delivering news and special reports for the past 15 years has enabled him to make ground-breaking and investigative reports. He is one of the hosts of GMA's flagship documentary program “I-Witness” and one of GMA Integrated News' senior correspondents.
“Here at Pinoy Crime Stories, we will focus on each case — from the investigation until it is resolved. There are actual interviews with crime investigators, witnesses, suspects, as well as victims. We will also have realistic dramatizations of each case discussed and analyzed in each episode,” shared Consulta.
In Pinoy Crime Stories, Consulta exposes the truth behind the most compelling and controversial crimes in the country. He follows the investigation of each case, traces the important details, and points out the results of the authorities' examination of crucial pieces of evidence that help solve the case.
For its pilot episode, Pinoy Crime Stories takes on the intriguing murder case of an 85-year-old woman who was found dead in her home in Parañaque last month.
Her male helper was initially declared as a “person of interest,” which placed him behind bars for one month, but was later discovered innocent upon the admission of two other female suspects with one of them even confessing her involvement in the crime to Consulta.
Catch Pinoy Crime Stories every Saturday beginning September 16, at 4:45 pm on GMA with a simulcast on Pinoy Hits.
