Jonel Nuezca, the convicted killer cop who went viral for murdering his neighbors in 2020, was reported to have died inside the New Bilibid Prison. Many relatives of his victims,Sonya and Frank Gregorio, don’t believe it’s true.


“He was brought unconscious to the NBP Hospital by his cell mates at 6:30 pm yesterday, Nov 30, 2021,” Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Spokesperson Gabriel Chaclag said. “Investigation ongoing to determine if there is foul play in the incident.”


Nuezca was pronounced dead at the prison’s hospital on Tuesday, November 30, at 6:44PM.


Mark Gregorio, son of the victim Sonya, said in an interview that was surprised to hear of Neuzca’s death.


“Even if they say there’s a photo and it’s all over the news, my reaction is…not even my father believes it,” Gregorio told TeleRadyo in Tagalog. “Yesterday, he said that no matter who tells us [Nuezca’s dead], we really won’t believe it.”


He added that their family is divided regarding the issue, since some see the ‘death’ is a smokescreen to let Nuezca out of prison discreetly while others actually believe he died.


“It could all just be a show…they could say he’s the corpse, but it’s a different corpse,” Gregorio explained in Tagalog. “A lot of things are entering my mind. I doubt he’s dead. He’s a cop. There are plenty of ways for him to break free.”


Nuezca had murdered the Gregorio mother and son in Tarlac over a neighborhood dispute. The trial was quick; he was convicted of double murder, ordered to pay damages and sent to Bilibid in August of 2021.
