The mother of artist Bree Jonson believes her daughter did not die of cocaine overdose or suicide due to the marks found on her neck.
“Kasi ang pinapalabas nila, ang nagci-circulate sa media, sa social media, is that, nag-OD ang anak ko or nag-suicide ang anak ko. Hindi eh,” Sally Jonson insisted during an ANC interview on Tuesday.
(They try to make it appear, what is circulating in media, and social media, is that my daughter overdosed or she committed suicide. I don’t think so.)
“I asked my sister to send a picture of my daughter. Kasi gusto kong makita. From that picture alone, makikita mo ‘yung, may mark si Breana dito sa leeg na mahaba, dalawa, tapos meron parang pulang pressure dito sa gitna. So, alam mo ‘yun, parang maiisip mo na something happened there,” Sally noted.
(I asked my sister to send a picture of my daughter. Because I want to see it. From that picture alone, you will see the long mark on Breana’s neck, two, and then there appears a red pressure in the middle. So, you know, somehow you will think that something happened there.)
Bree Jonson’s mother also pointed discrepancies in statements of Julian Ongpin, the last person believed to have seen the young artist alive.
Bree Jonson was found unconscious inside a hotel room in San Juan, La Union, on Saturday, September 18, and was later declared dead in a hospital.
“Iba ‘yung lumabas na naging testimony ni Julian din. Ang una ang sabi, nakita daw niya nagkulong sa banyo ang anak ko, and she hanged herself. Tapos ngayon, ‘yung lumabas kahapon, nakita siya on the bed, lifeless. So, ‘di ba?” Sally also claimed.
(Julian’s testimony turned out different. At first, he said he saw my daughter lock herself up in the bathroom, and she hanged herself. Then now, what came out yesterday, he saw her on the bed, lifeless. So, what gives?)
Marks found on the neck of Bree Jonson, her mother says
“And then, kahapon may nag-forward sa amin ng picture ng mugshot ni Julian. Talagang nakakatakot, nakakapanindig-balahibo. ‘Yung arm ni Julian, may mga deep scratches, so parang, ano yun? Talagang nanlaban ‘yung anak ko, sinong gagawa nun sa kanya? Talagang fresh deep scratches sa arm niya,” she continued.
(And then yesterday, someone forwarded to us a mugshot of Julian. It’s so scary, it’s chilling. Julian’s arm has deep scratches, so what’s that? My daughter really had fought back, who would do that to him? There’s really fresh deep scratches on his arm.)
The provincial prosecutor’s office released Julian Ongpin, the son of billionaire Robert Ongpin, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Guillermo Eleazar confirmed Tuesday.
The 29-year-old Ongpin was caught with 12.6 grams of cocaine and is being investigated into the death of 30-year-old artist Bree Jonson.
“Sa aking huling pakikipag-usap sa [Regional Director Police Brig. Gen] Emmanuel Peralta, nagdesisyon ang Provincial Prosecutor’s Office na palayain si Ginoong Ongpin habang ini-imbestigahan ang kaso,” said Eleazar.
(In my last conversation with [Regional Director Police Brig. Gen] Emmanuel Peralta, the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office, decided to release Mr. Ongpin while the case is being investigated.)
