Duterte announces: 'It was Ashley Abad who the Source of the Party Drugs'

Shocking details on the 19-year-old girl who died from a party drug in a Pre-Sinulog concert last January.

President Rodrigo Duterte revealed on Wednesday that Ashley Abad, the teenager who died of suspected drug overdose in Cebu City, was the source of the party drugs.

The President said he told the teenager’s parents — Jose Alfonso and Grace Avila Abad — that it was their daughter who texted her friends and her boyfriend to share the drugs.

The President revealed this in his speech at the signing ceremony at Malacañang Palace of two bills — the Revised Corporation Code and the Universal Healthcare Act.

The President said he met with the Abad couple in Malacañang Palace on Feb. 7.

“Nag-reklamo sila. They want justice. Pero nakita nila na-recover yung forensics examinations, she was the one actually texting another girl na maghati sila dun at yung isa reserbahan para sa kanyang boyfriend, yung missing until now,” Duterte said in a speech in Malacañang.

[They filed a complaint. They want justice. But they saw in the forensics examinations, she was the one actually texting another girl that they share and reserve some for her boyfriend, the one who’s missing until now.]

According to reports, the 19-year-old medical student took a drink laced with ecstasy at a pre-Sinulog Festival concert at the Cebu Business Park last Jan. 19.

Duterte expressed his sorrow to Abad’s parents.
I wanted to cry with them — not because na sentimental ako but [because of] the profound sorrow [I felt]… may anak rin ako [I also have children],” President Duterte said.

Suspected Boyfriend

Abad was with her boyfriend, Nel Spencer Tiu, and six friends during the party held on the eve of Sinulog.

Tiu denied he was the one who gave ecstasy to Abad.

His lawyer Orlando Salatandre told reporters that Tiu went outside of the party venue to buy bottled water and he did not know that his girlfriend took a party drug.

The result of the autopsy on Abad had been released to the girl’s family. It reportedly indicates the dosage of the party drug that the teenager took, which resulted in multiple organ failure.
