Rochelle Barrameda, older sister of slain mother of two Ruby Rose Barrameda-Jimenez, is balking at the request of the Jimenez family to have her sister's body exhumed for reautopsy by forensic pathologist Dr. Raquel Fortun.
The request was made by the Jimenez family through their lawyer Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, in today's continuation of the preliminary investigation at the DOJ. Atty. Topacio raised the possibility that the body buried by the Barrameda family was not that of Ruby Rose.
Today's hearing was the first time that the Barrameda and Jimenez families faced off since this horrifyingly-brutal case rocked the nation more than a month ago on June 10 when Ruby Rose's body was found inside a cemented drum on a tip by star witness Manuel Montero.
