The younger sister of former beauty queen Rochelle Barrameda, Ruby Rose Barrameda-Jimenez, has been found dead in Navotas after two years of searching.
In a gruesome turn of events, Ruby Rose's body was found inside a concrete-filled steel drum that was dumped in Manila Bay.
Rochelle Barrameda said that her Ruby Rose was identified by her brother from the clothes the victim in the drum was wearing. Ruby Rose was first reported missing on March 14, 2007. The Barrameda family suspects that Ruby Rose's husband had something to do with the incident.
Here are reports filed by Steve Dailisan of Saksi, Oscar Oida and a one-on-one between Rochelle Barrameda and Igan Arnold Clavio of Unang Hirit courtesy of GMANews.tv:
Igan Arnold Clavio's one-on-one interview with Rochelle Barrameda is nothing short of wrenching. She described Ruby Rose's body as handcuffed, strangled, covered with plastic over her head. "Gruesome" is a word that falls way short of what happened to poor Ruby Rose Barrameda.
We expect our nation, the PNP and our investigative agencies and our Senators to spend some time away from the Hayden Kho sex video scandal and into searching for the killer or killers and towards giving justice to Ruby Rose Barrameda-Jimenez and her family.
