Helena Belmonte, a 28-year-old Filipino-American model, died after allegedly jumping off at Unit E, 28th floor, Renaissance 1000 Tower, in Barangay (Village) Ugong Pasig, City.
PO3 Lawrence Punzalan, case investigator, said that the incident happened at around 1:30 a.m. Thursday.
He said that they could not immediately process the crime scene because of the request of the family. The victim reportedly fell from the veranda of her unit into the 7th floor. Her body was caught on top of an exhaust machine, but the victim’s relatives requested security personnel to leave the scene untouched.
Belmonte’s boyfriend told police that before the incident, they came back to the former’s unit with a female friend after attending a party. They helped the drunk Belmonte to her bed and left for awhile. When they came back, Belmonte was already at the 7th floor, apparently dead.
Police are still investigating the cause of the incident.
