According to broadcast journalist Tony Calvento, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) was able to retrieved the text messages sent by model Deniece Cornejo to Vhong Navarro before the mauling incident on January 22.
“The NBI has retrieved the messages that were deleted. True to everything that Vhong said the messages of ‘sweetie’ the invitation to go to condo were there. What was perplexing was the fact that after Vhong left the condo the group of Cedric came a few minutes after, missing Vhong by a hairline,” Calvento posted in his Facebook account.
Calvento also said the information given exclusively to him, Vhong left Deniece’s condo unit past 1 a.m. when he first visited the 22-year-old model on January 17. He said Vhong stayed there for about two hours and if the comedian stayed a little longer, he could’ve met Cedric Lee and the guys and probably be beaten right that instant.
The famous word “bad boy ka” and “sweetie” which were allegedly texted by Cornejo and deleted by Cedric Lee after their encounter were also included in the retrieved messages.
Calvento said that the CCTV footage, the sms messages and other evidence will be submitted during the next preliminary investigation on Friday.
