Actress Rochelle Barrameda will continuously seek justice for sister’s murder

With the arrest of one of the suspects in the murder of Ruby Rose Barrameda-Jimenez whose body was recovered two years ago, her sister Rochelle Barrameda wants nothing more than to keep the suspect behind bars.

The suspect, Lennard “Spyke” Descalso, was arrested on June 17 in Mariveles, Bataan.


“Nung nalaman namin na si Spyke [ang nahuli], isa siya sa talagang gustong gusto naming makulong. According dun sa witness namin na si Manuel Montero (suspect turned witness in 2009 after pointing the location of Ruby’s remains), siya ‘yung mismong sumakal sa kapatid ko. Sa mga kamay niya mismo namatay,” Barrameda said on “Paparazzi,” June 19.

She added: “Nagkaroon ng broken ribs si Ruby, nakuha ‘yun sa autopsy dahil tinuhod niya (Descalso) ‘yung dibdib ng kapatid ko. At hindi lang ‘yun ang pinakamasakit sa kapatid ko. All the while, akala din ni Montero, nakatali ‘yung mga kamay ni Ruby sa loob ng drum na nakasemento. Pero nagulat ako, yung SOCO (Scene of the Crime Operatives), may hinuhugasan silang posas. So pinosas parin niya ‘yung kapatid ko.”

It was in 2009 when the actress cried for justice after authorities found her sister’s body cemented inside a steel drum. An autopsy indicated the horrific fate Barrameda’s sister endured.

“Ngayon na nandito siya, nagpapasalamat kami sa Diyos at nagpapasalamat kami sa mga pulis na nakahuli sakanya,” Barrameda said.

Now that Descalso is in police custody, Barrameda is set to meet him face-to-face in a few days. The actress stressed she has no intention of speaking to the suspect.

Rather, she pointed out, “Siguro konsensya na lang niya, kumabaga may pamilya siya… may mga anak siya. Ang iniisip ko lang, ito  na ang pangalawang pagkakataon na binigay sa kanya ng Diyos para baguhin niya kung ano man ang mga pagkakamaling nagawa niya in the past. [Kung] aaminin niya kung ano ang mga nalalaman niya baka kahit papano makatulong siya sa pamilya ko at makatulong siya sa kaso ng kapatid ko.”
Since two out of the six suspects in her sisters killing were supposedly relatives of her sister’s estranged husband, Manuel Jimenez III, as reported by a broadsheet last August 2009, Barrameda was asked whether she has anything to tell the family now.

“Wala po. Ang sa akin lang, kasi ‘yung mga taong iniisip namin na mag-aalaga at magmamahal sa kapatid ko, sila pa ‘yung pumatay kay Ruby Rose,” Barrameda charged on the show.

“Kumbaga nakita ko ‘yung paghihirap ng kapatid ko emotionally. Hindi man siya sinasaktan ng asawa niya pero nung isang beses na nagawa niya ‘yun. Matindi ang impact nun sa kapatid ko na ‘yun ‘yung [parang naging] rason niya na, ‘Ito na talaga ito, ate, sign na ito para humiwalay ako,’” she said.

Barrameda claimed during the interview that the cooperation expected from the family of her sister’s former husband was not given.

“Nung time na nawala ‘yung kapatid ko, ni wala man lang silang tulong na ginawa para sa amin.

“Naging kalmado ako nung time pa lang na nawawala si Ruby dahil ayokong may masamang mangyari sa kapatid ko ‘pag may isang word akong nasabi na hindi nila magustuhan. Pero nung ipapatay nila ‘yung kapatid ko at ipagkait ‘yung mga anak ng kapatid ko, ibang usapan ‘yun,” she lamented, repeating her accusation.

According to the August 2009 broadsheet report, the charge sheet of the then 27-year-old Ruby Rose said she was killed in Malabon and that Manuel Jr. and Lope Jimenez were “principals by instigation and inducement.”

Keeping the promise she gave her sister that she’ll get to the bottom of her case, Barrameda, with sheer determination, concluded the interview by saying, “Sa lahat ng kasamaan, may hangganan.”
