  • An OFW died in Kuwait last December
  • Her body was flown back to the country on January 5
  • The OFW’s internal organs, including the tongue, brain, kidneys, lungs and eyes were missing

Relatives of an overseas Filipino worker who died in Kuwait are seeking answers to a lot of questions regarding their relative’s death.

The OFW, identified as Liezl Trus Hukdong, reportedly took her own life in Kuwait. Liezl’s employer told her relatives last December 19, 2017 that she died after hanging herself, which the relatives said was hard to believe.

As per an Inquirer story, Liezl’s body was flown back to the country on January 5 and was taken to a funeral parlor where it was discovered that her tongue, kidneys, lungs, brain and eyes were missing. Only the intestines remained.

If she really hanged herself, why is the body full of bruises? The relatives asked; adding, was it really necessary to remove her internal organs?

The OFW’s brother took pictures of her body and a niece posted the photos on Facebook; hoping that government officials would take notice.

Wala pa po kaming nalalapitan kaya nga po ako nag-post baka sakaling mapansin ng mga government officials [We have not yet approached anyone, which is why I made the post, hoping it would call the attention of government officials],” Grace Hukdong, the OFW’s niece, said.
