Glee Star's Dad Murdered

The estranged father of singer Charice Pempengco of the hit TV show "Glee" was stabbed to death in her hometown in the Philippines, causing the teen star to fly home and cancel the rest of her tour dates.
In a statement, Charice said the killing was a "terrible tragedy." She thanked fans for their support.
Her father, 40-year-old construction worker Ricky Pempengco, was at a small grocery store in San Pedro township south of Manila late Monday when he brushed against a drunk man who became angry and stabbed him with an ice pick in the chest and back, according to the Laguna province police chief, Senior Supt. Gilbert Cruz.
A manhunt has been launched for the suspect. Cruz said the killing appeared random.
Charice had long been estranged from her father. Local media reported that Charice's mother left him when Charice and her younger brother were small children.
