Trina Committed Suicide Says PAO Forensic Consultant Dr. Erwin Erfe

21 April 2009

Dr. Erwin Erfe, a forensic expert identified closely with the Public Attorney's Office (PAO) headed by the controversial Atty. Persida Acosta, has made the conclusion that Trinidad "Trina" Etong committed suicde.   

The primary basis for Erfe's conclusion is that the contusion collar was uniformly level. According to him, "the contusion collar was very uniform" which means that "the gun used was directly perpendicular" to Trina's head.  Based on this, he pronounced that it's most likely a suicide.
Erfe obtained his medical degree from the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) and a is a graduate of Forensic Science and Medicine at the Virginia Institute of Forensic Science and Medicine (VIFSM) medicine graduate of the PLM.   Erfe also holds a law degree from the Manila Law College and is a professor of forensic medicine at the Ateneo Law School.  You can find his credentials here.

As expected, DOJ Secretary Raul Gonzales was quick to shoot down Erfe's conclusions. According to Gonzales, it is "not proper" for Erfe to be talking because he is not a member of the official team investigating the death of Trina Etong .   

Here is the video of Erfe's interview courtesy of gmanewstv:

Please stay tuned for more updates. 

Let's continue praying for the Failon family, the authorities and the Filipino nation as we draw near to laying to rest Trina Etong's mortal body.
