    Public urged to avoid drawing
    conclusions about Ronaldo Valdez’s
    death

    The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) on Monday called on the public to
    refrain from drawing conclusions related to the death of seasoned
    actor Ronaldo Valdez.

    QCPD confirmed the death of the septuagenarian on Sunday, December 17.
    Reports mentioned that the QCPD did not disclose further details about
    Ronaldo’s demise.

    An article from Daily Tribune reported that he “allegedly” died by “suicide,”
    citing the QCPD.

    The report, published six hours ago as of writing, said that the police were still
    waiting for a “result” from a laboratory exam from “SOCO” or the Scene of
    Crime Operatives.

    Actor-comedian Janno Gibbs, one of Ronaldo’s children, also confirmed the
    passing of the veteran actor, but did not disclose details.

    “The family would like to request that you respect our privacy in our grieving
    moment. Your prayers and condolences are much appreciated,” he said on
    Instagram on December 18.

    Meanwhile, the QCPD on the same day urged the public “to refrain from
    concluding and respect the family’s request to grieve in private.”

    “The QCPD extends its heartfelt condolences for the reported death of James
    Ronald Dulaca Gibbs yesterday, December 18, 2023,” it said in a press
    statement.

    “As of today, QCPD is currently conducting a thorough investigation to
    ascertain the cause of the death of Mr. James Gibbs a.k.a. Ronaldo Valdez,”
    the police added.

    “We understand the importance of this matter; hence, we are working
    diligently to gather all relevant facts and evidence. We assure the public that
    any findings from the investigation will be officially released,” the QCPD said.
