Woke up to the heartbreaking news that the mother of It’s Showtime’s “Pastillas Girl” Angelica Jane Yap was killed last night by a gunshot wound in the back of her head. According to ABS-CBN, Mrs. Teresa “Teteng” Yap was shot dead in Caloocan as she and a daughter and a niece were about to dine at an eatery. As reported, based on the CCTV recording in the barangay, Mrs. Yap was shot at close range by a man who approached from behind riding a motorcycle. She was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
ABS-CBNNews.com reported that a relative named Tumping Fabian shared that Mrs. Yap has been receiving but ignoring a lot of death threats through anonymous text messages indicating her death before Christmas.
