The death of a two-year old girl in Valladolid, Negros Occidental, on Wednesday, was blamed by her mother on a “tamawo (spirit).”
The victim, identified as Judy Paiman,2, died of drowning, initial investigations of the Valladolid police showed.
Mary Joy Paiman, her mother, said in an interview with ABS-CBN, said that she is not inclined to believe that her daughter died of drowning.
The victim was reportedly playing in a pail, that was only half-filled with water, in their bathroom, when the incident took place.
A death certificate issued to the victim, indicated that she died of drowning.
Paiman, however, said she believes that her daughter was taken by the “tamawo”. * GPB
