Anti-FPJ lawyer's prints found on knife, cutter

Police on Tuesday said that probers now have more concrete evidence that a lawyer-critic of the late actor and presidential candidate Fernando Poe Jr. who reportedly committed suicide in Pasig City recently, ABS-CBN News reported.

Authorities based their statement on the autopsy report released Tuesday that indicated fingerprints found on the knife and box cutter used in Jeanette Tecson's death belonged to the victim.

The lawyer was found dead inside one of the rooms of a hotel on San Miguel Avenue in Ortigas Center on Saturday.

Before her body was discovered over the weekend, the hotel's security camera caught Tecson entering her room after checking in at the lobby on Wednesday last week.

She was seen leaving the room a few hours later with a plastic bag.

Hotel staff said she stayed inside the room for two days before her body was found.

The lawyer had three slashes on the wrist, three on the neck and a superficial stomach wound.

Police Scene of Crime Operations office said that such instances happen when victims were brave enough to kill themselves. The SOCO also cited another case it handled wherein the victim stabbed his neck with the use of a bolo.

In Tecson’s case, police said the victim probably wanted an instant death when she slashed her wrist but decided to inflict more wounds to speed up the process.

All the evidence, including the lipstick mark on the duct tape and the fingerprint exam result, supported the police’s theory of suicide. Police added that Tecson also sent suicide messages through her cell phone.

Probers, however, have yet to close the investigation and are not discounting the possibility of homicide.

Tecson was known for being one of the lawyers who blocked Poe's candidacy during the 2004 presidential election.

She was also the legal counsel and spokeswoman of the pre-need firm Pacific Plans in 2005 when the company was sued for failing to fulfill its obligation to plan holders. With a report from Zyann Ambrosio
