Another "mysterious" death

“Our Migrante chapters in the Middle East have recorded 15 cases of ‘mysterious’ deaths involving OFWs, mostly women, since 2008. Their respective families are not discounting the possibility of foul play leading to their deaths. As far as we are concerned, these are not yet closed or solved,” Monterona said.
Monterona cited the following cases of mysterious deaths of OFWs:

-- Rowena Peremne Arceo, 33, of Cordillera province, who died October 22, 2008, in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia; unsolved case.
-- Joy Cabansi Sarto, 28, of Echague, Isabela province, allegedly murdered by her Arab employer on Sept. 22, 2009; unsolved case.
-- Eugenia Baja, 24, holder of passport number SS0428627; initial reports said she committed suicide, but an autopsy report revealed that Baja bore stab wounds and bruises; unsolved case.
-- Analyn de Pena, 33, of Old Sta. Mesa, Manila, who allegedly committed suicide sometime in November 2009, but her family believes there was foul play; unsolved case.
-- Marilou Macam Ating, 37, of Lingayen, Pangasinan; sketchy reports reaching her family stated that she died after she fell from the fourth floor of her employer’s residence. Family believes there was foul play leading to her death on November 24, 2008; unsolved case.
-- From February to August 2009, the Migrante chapter in Dubai has already recorded seven cases of mysterious deaths of OFWs. These include Roderick Miranda, who reportedly hanged himself on February 4; Norayda Ayuman, who reportedly jumped from the seventh floor of a building on February 6; Jeffrey Alberto So, who reportedly jumped from the third floor of a building on June 13; and Evelyn Lilo, who allegedly jumped from a building on August 10. All these cases remain unsolved.
