REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The mother of a 25-year old Filipina physical therapist who left for the United States just three months ago — wants justice for her death.
Romina Vanessa Ignacio was found dead inside her Hutchinson, Kansas apartment on June 27.
She allegedly committed suicide, but her family members do not believe she could take her own life. Ignacio was reportedly found dead in her bathtub, holding a knife and bearing wounds on her neck and chest. There was reportedly no indication of forced entry in Ignacio’s apartment.
Ignacio’s remains arrived in the Philippines last Saturday.
Her family decided to have her remains re-autopsied by the Philippine Bureau of Investigation.
