Marky Cielo’s death: Bangungot or suicide?

His life has turned into a reality show. Even in his death.

The morning of December 7th was a Sunday morning when Marky Cielo did not wake up. While there is still no official word as to the cause of his death, the silence is fanning speculations. Was is really bangungot (acute pancreatitis a la Rico Yan), or was it suicide?

  • Someone said in the forums that his mother said something like sana patawarin ka ng Diyos sa inyong ginawa.
  • Why was his neck covered?
  • Suot niya ang kanyang suit na ginamit noon sa grand finals ng kanyang StarStruck season. Kapansin-pansing napakataas ng saradong kuwelyo ni Marky na takip ang kanyang leeg. [^]

  • Why was crying the day before? What was his problem? Why death threats? What has this problem got to do with his death?
  • If it was suicide, could it be that he thought it was the only honorable thing to do? He was, afterall, a good person and people look up to him because of that.

    In the end, all reality shows have to face reality. And what his family and fans are asking is some privacy, please. Let truth take its time.

    Marky Cielo — Crimson shirt endorser

    Marky Cielo models two of the shirts from the wide line-up of Crimson Shirt of which he is the main endorser.

    ‘’Tis the season to be jolly,’ says Marky, ‘and to brighten up the scene with colorful clothes in keeping with the spirit of the season.’

    Crimson Shirt is constantly evolving, refusing to submit itself to the dictum of the so-called ‘prophets of fashion.’

    The designs are edgy, with the material at once pleasing to the eye and that fits and hugs the body of the wearer perfectly.

    Crimson Shirts are available at all SM outlets and stores nationwide. [Philippine Star]

    Marky Cielo Magpakailanman

    Stylized so non-Igorots can identify who the Igorot are. But really, we don’t have to wear those things to be called Igorot. Like yung bedbed ni Marky, mid met men-us-usar is teenager is kegtusa on an ordinary day. It’s not that I’m not proud of it, ngem, I hate it when we have to be seen only in this certain package.

    Someone’s insisting that they saw Marky Cielo in New York. Iba pa daw nung sina Mark Herras.

    Ows, sha kad?
