Deniece Cornejo attempts suicide

Deniece Cornejo slashed her wrist inside her detention cell at the Philippine National Police (PNP) headquarters in Quezon City on Sunday in protest of the dismissal of a rape complaint she filed against host-actor Vhong Navarro.

The model slashed her left wrist as a “symbolic protest” against the July 11 decision of the Taguig City Prosecutor’s Office. Her lawyer,  Atty. Salvador Panelo, said  Deniece is still in shock after her complaint was dismissed.

However, the PNP-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) clarified that Cornejo did not slash her wrist in a suicide attempt. According to CIDG Chief Benjamin Magalong, Cornejo just wounded her wrist to inscribe the letters “W” and “R” using her eyebrow trimmer at around 3 a.m.that stands for Women’s Rights according to Cornejo’s grandfather.
