The Philippine National Police released some of the crime scene photos inside the room where painter Bree Jonson was found lifeless over the weekend.
One photo showed a broken door of the room’s bathroom which was aligned with Julian Ongpin’s statement to the police. Ongpin was a person of interest in the death of Jonson as he was the companion of the painter in the room.
Another photo showed the window of the bathroom which jealousies were forcedly removed.
Julian Ongpin said he found artist Bree Jonson hanging in the bathroom, so he untied her and put her on the bed, according to Philippine National Police chief Guillermo Eleazar.
“That’s part of the reenactment, sinabi nakita niya eh nakabigti tapos tinanggal niya at nilagay doon sa bed,” Eleazar said in a press briefing.
(He said that he saw her hanging, then untied her and placed her on the bed.)
“That is his recollection and his statement,” Eleazar added.
Crime scene photos of Bree Jonson’s death released
Investigators found wounds on the arms and back of Julian Ongpin, the person of interest in the death of artist Bree Jonson.
The 29-year-old Ongpin told police that the nails from the broken door caused deep wounds on his arms and back.
“‘Yung sinasabi niya (Julian Ongpin) sa likod at kamay, gawa ng pagsuot niya sa maliit na pintuan sa CR (comfort room). Kasi nu’ng hindi lumalabas si Breana, sinira niya (ang pinto) at nasugatan siya. Nasugatan siya sa pako,” Peralta said in a separate interview.
(That’s what he is saying, his wounds on his back and arms were from trying to cross the small door of the restroom. Breana was not responding, so he broke the door. He was wounded from the nails.)
“‘Yun ang kwento niya, pumasok si Breana sa CR. Nagtaka siya na ang tagal, almost one hour so kinatok niya (pero) ‘di siya pinagbubuksan,” he added.
(Breana went to the CR. Ongpin was wondering what was taking her so long as it was almost an hour. He knocked on the door, but Breana did not open it.)
However, the family of Bree Jonson does not believe that the painter committed suicide.
