The former policeman convicted of killing a woman and her son in Tarlac last year died after collapsing at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP), authorities confirmed Wednesday.

Dismissed MSgt. Jonel Nuezca was declared dead at the hospital at 6:44 p.m. Tuesday, Bureau of Corrections (Bucor) spokesperson Gabriel Chaclag said.

Nuezca, detained at the NBP’s maximum security compound, first complained of dizziness, he said.

“Dahil nahihilo daw po, nag-complain po siya, so sinamahan siya maglakad papunta sa ospital then nagcollapse na sa alleyway, and then sinubukan pang i-revive pagdating sa ospital,” Chaclag said in an interview over DZBB radio.

“Wala namang nakalagay sa medical history, wala po siyang (Nuezca) history of going to the hospital before this incident,” he added.

Chaclag said the cause of Nuezca’s death has yet to be ascertained, so the National Bureau of Investigation was tapped to conduct an autopsy on the former policeman’s remains.

“May imbestigasyon po na isinasagawa. Hinihintay po natin ‘yung full investigation report, pero ang initial report ay siya ay nag-collapse,” he said.

Nuezca has been detained at the NBP since being convicted last August for murdering his neighbors Sonya Gregorio, 52, and her son Frank Anthony, 25, in Paniqui, Tarlac, on December 20, 2020.

The shooting, witnessed by Nuezca’s daughter and recorded on a video clip that went viral, was said to have stemmed from an altercation over the use of an improvised toy cannon or “boga.”

Police drew heavy flak over the incident as Nuezca was then an active policeman assigned at the Parañaque City Crime Laboratory. The shooting also drew clamor for regular neuro-psychiatric exams for lawmen.
