Jenny took suicide last May 28, 2017, according to her employer. She fell from the seventh floor flat of her employer in Jeddah. Jenny had been working in Saudi Arabia for only two weeks when the incident happened.

According to his husband, John Paul Reyes, that until now, they don't believe his wife committed suicide because her things fell with her from the seventh floor.

"Feeling po namin patay na po siya, hinulog po siya dun kasi sabi ng mga kalapit kwarto niya dun may naamoy na daw po sila sa labas ng bahay na may kakaiba daw po," Reyes said.

But according to Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Administrator Hans Cacdac, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has ruled out the possibility of foul play in Jenny's death.

He said the family can request for the autopsy to the remains to know the reason of her death.

With this, Cacdac said, the family can file a case against Jenny's employer and her employment agency and they can tap the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

OWWA already gave assistance to the family of the victim but they are hoping the agency would help in the investigation.

In GMA's News dated June 28, 2017, it was stated that the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has ordered the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh to conduct its own investigation into Jenny's death.

"Embassy lawyers are now investigating the case with police and forensic investigators and looking into all angles of the case," the DFA stated.
