May you rest in peace my pretty cousin…

Yesterday was a very sad sad day. It was the day that our cousin “Myka” was brought to her final resting place. All family members and close friends wore white shirt were “Justice for Mizzielle Jamyka Cruz Gutierrez” is printed in front. From their house, her remains were moved to San Pablo Chapel.

The Mass was hosted by St. Paul University Manila, and a bus full of ‘Paulinians’ was also there. Everybody was emotional as everybody still couldn’t believe this terrible tragedy that struck our family. We always see news about people being killed or dying but we never though such brutal thing could happen to one of our family members. Specially to someone that is very young and have a promising future ahead of her. After the mass, her remains were taken to Manila Memorial Park, Sucat, Paranaque.

Family, Friends, Neighbors, Schoolmates, Collegues, Friends of friends and even people who don’t really know her at first but was moved by her story, joined together to escort her body while being taken to her final resting place. Some were holding banners that show her pictures and other banners that say the message “Justice for Myka!” or “Justice for Mizzielle Jamyka Cruz Gutierrez”. People were willing to walk several kilometres as a sacrifice and to share the pain that she had suffered. This is our way of spreading the story of Myka to other people and so people can help us find justice for her.

When we arrived at the location, final prayers were given and people were given the chance to view Myka one last time. Many people shed their tears, shared their prayers and sympathies. Some guys like me were also not able to hold back our tears but it was nothing compared to the pain felt by Myka’s Father, Mother and brothers. White balloons were released into the air as Myka’s remains were being lowered down and flowers were thrown to her final resting place.

Thank you to all who paid their respects, and shared their prayers and sympathies to our family. We hope you will continue your prayers so that we can find the Justice that Myka deserves.

    Pangalawang beses ko na pong napanuod ang tungkol kay Myka sa SOCO. Nung una ko pong napanuod, ewan ko po kung namalik-mata lang po ako na nakita ang Suspect dito sa Doha-Qatar.

    Hindi po ako sigurado kung yung Suspect nga po ang nakita ko, maaring kahawig lang pero baka makatulong po ito sa inyo para mahanap ang Suspect. Isang beses ko lang namataan yung tao at hindi na po naulit, (kinabukasan nung una kong mapanuod sa SOCO) kung makikita ko ulit susubokan ko na lang syang tawagin sa pangalang VON, pag tumingin kikilalanin ko sya at kukunan ng litrato.

    Alam ko na magiging malaking trabaho ito para sa Gobyerno natin. Isa po akong OFW, magpapakilala na lang po ako sa inyo kung tama nga itong naibahagi kong inpormasyon. Hanggang dito lang po ang maitutulong ko, may Pamilya din po akong dapat pangalagaan.

    May mga kaparaanan po ang Gobyerno natin para maisagawa ang paghahanap, sana po’y maging confidential po muna ang Email at pangalan ko.

    I support Justice for Myka.
