Recently, the public was shocked to learn that Nadine Lustre’s younger brother, Isaiah, has committed suicide. Isaiah Paguia Lustre, a 16-year-old high school student, shot himself in the head.
In a report by Philippine Entertainment Portal, Police Officer (PO3) Elario Wanawan of the Quezon City Police District-Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit (QCPD-CIDU) confirmed that they found the teenager’s bloody body sprawled on the floor in his room.
Isaiah’s father, Ulysses Lustre, refused to release a statement since he believes that his son killed himself. According to Abante Tonite, the teenager’s death was deemed “mysterious” by investigators.
The source claimed that the QCPD-CIDU discussed the “mysterious” circumstances surrounding Isaiah’s suicide. An individual from the unit – who declined to disclose his or her identity – shared:
“Kung magpapakamatay ka at magbabaril ka sa ulo, isang putok lang ng baril tepok ka na nun. Hindi ka na makakakalabit pa ng baril.”
“Kailangan isailalim sa ballistic test ‘yung ginamit na baril kaya lang ayaw nang paimbestigahan ng father ni Nadine eh.”
The QCPD-CIDU also claimed that it is possible for Ulysses to face charges if investigators discover that he is the owner of the caliber .380 handgun that Isaiah used to kill himself.
In a separate report from Abante Tonite, the Lustre family patriarch has reportedly signed a waiver that states his refusal to let his son Isaiah’s body to undergo an autopsy.
The QCPD-CIDU stated that they need to investigate Ulysses to prove that the teenager really died of suicide. They obtained two live .380 caliber rounds on the night they discovered Isaiah’s body. According to them, the gun had had no serial number.
Nona Clemente, Nadine Lustre’s aunt, tweeted: “Please lift a prayer for my nephew, Isaiah Lustre. Eternal rest grant unto him Oh Lord.”
Meanwhile, Nadine Lustre has yet to issue an official statement regarding her brother’s tragic passing as of this writing.
