The 16-year-old brother of Nadine Lustre has allegedly died by suicide, according to police.
The Quezon City Police Department (QCPD) said Isaiah Lustre was found lifeless in their house in Quezon City. CNN Philippines reported the authorities recovered an empty shell of a .38 caliber gun at the scene.
The report mentions police refused to give out more details out of respect for the family’s wishes.
The Lustre family refused to have an investigation on the incident since they’re convinced that the teenager did die by suicide.
Lustre posted two Instagram stories two days after the death of her brother, one of which had a semicolon with the hashtag #KeepGoing; and the other which read “You are stronger than depression.”
World Mental Health Day is on October 10. The semicolon came from an American mental health organization called Project Semicolon.
It symbolizes efforts to prevent suicide, urging people living with depression to seek help because “Your story is not yet over.”
