A 40-year-old Filipina domestic worker from Bacolod City was found dead on the evening of Dec 4 in her kitchen bed space, one day after reportedly complaining of migraine.
Police said she was “found collapsed” and certified dead, with no suspicious circumstances. Her body was taken to a hospital where a postmortem is expected to be performed.
An officer of the Consulate’s assistance to nationals, Danny Baldon, said the helper, Johana Periera, had been working for her employers, a local couple with two young sons, for just five months.
Periera was herself married with two young sons.
The employers reportedly said the helper had complained of having a migraine on Saturday, Dec. 3, so they told her to just rest at their 15th floor flat in Royal Ascot estate in Fotan, Shatin, the next day, which was her day off.
“The employers were out the whole day on Sunday and when they returned home and checked on the maid in the evening, they found her unconscious,” Baldon said.
Friends of the deceased told The SUN they had no idea that Periera had suffered from migraine.
One of them, a domestic worker on the same block who requested not to be named, said Periera had told her on Saturday that she had an argument with her employer the previous day.
On Sunday, the friend said she, along with other fellow Filipinas, were surprised to see an ambulance parked in front of their residential block, and Periera’s female boss going down to meet the officers.
The employer reportedly told the Filipinas that Periera was “unconscious”. 
“We went up to the 15th floor to find out what happened, but we saw police officers and ambulance staff with a wheeled stretcher inside the house,” said the friend.
She said the kitchen, which was also Periera’s sleeping quarters, was closed and guarded by two officers.
The friends went back to the ground floor and when the police emerged from the lift after 5 minutes, they asked about her and one of the officers replied “dead”.  
Another friend of the deceased said the woman’s husband had been calling her from Bacolod on Dec 4, asking about her and saying he was worried because she didn’t make her usual Sunday phone call to her family.
