The Philippine National Police declared that there was no foul play in the death of visual artist Bree Jonson, whose last known companion was former trade minister’s son, Julian Ongpin. The billionaire scion was previously considered a person of interest in the Jonson case.

Police chief Gen. Dionardo Carlos said: “He is not anymore a person of interest to the case. We will advise the Police Regional Office 1 to respond to the request of the DOJ regarding the DNA report. Rest assured that we will cooperate with the DOJ should there be additional queries and requests for documents.”


Last Nov. 15, La Union Regional Trial Court Branch 27 Judge Romeo Agacita Jr. junked the complaint for possession of cocaine due to lack of probable cause.


In addition to no longer being a person of interest in Jonson’s death, his name has also been removed from the list of persons under hold departure order (HDO) by the Bureau of Immigration.


Previously, Ongpin was arrested for possession of illegal drugs – 12.6 grams of cocaine, in particular. He and Jonson both tested positive for cocaine use.
