Ricky Pempengco, Ram Revilla, Boots Plata - Celebrity Deaths in less than a week

Charice's estranged father Ricky Pempengco was murdered in Laguna, only three nights after young actor Ram Revilla was also murdered in Parañaque City.

Then just this afternoon, director Boots Plata has passed away from cancer at the St. Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig City.

And it all happened in just 5 days.

Ram Revilla (photo), 22, half-brother of Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr, was shot and stabbed to death in his residence at BF in Homes Parañaque last Friday, October 28.

Ram's girlfriend Janelle Manahan aka Janelle Quintana, former actress and finalist on ABS-CBN's Star Circle National Teen Quest, was also shot, but she survived and is now recovering in the hospital.

Three suspects have been arrested by the police, including Ram's very own brother Ramon Joseph Ram's sister Ramona is also being considered as suspect, but she's still at large as of this writing.

Before the shooting incident, Janelle was still able to log in on Twitter and made 15 tweets. She posted that she just got home from a family get-together that day.

Ram was already laid to rest today at the Angelus Eternal Gardens in Imus, Cavite.

Another shocking death made headlines Monday, October 31, three days after Ram Revilla's death.

Charice's father Ricky Pempengco, 43, was stabbed many times and killed in Sen Pedro, Laguna by a suspect identified as Angel Capili, Jr, who's still being hunted by the police.

Both were reportedly drunk when the incident happened.

Charice was in Indonesia when his father died and she had to back out of 'David Foster and Friends' concert in Singapore scheduled November 2 and 3. She arrived in the Philippines Tuesday night.

Philippine showbiz is also mourning the death of director Boots Plata who died of lung cancer today, November 2.

He was 68.

Among his films (mostly starred Judy Ann Santos) included "Pakisabi na lang... Mahal ko siya", "Bakit 'Di Totohanin", "Ayos Na...Ang Kasunod", "Weder-Weder Lang 'Yan", "Honey, My Love, So Sweet", "My Pledge of Love", "Muling Ibalik Ang Tamis Ng Pag-ibig", "Wanted Perfect Murder", "Kung Alam Mo Lang", "Sana Naman", "Buddy en Sol (Sine ito)" and the FPJ-Juday box-office hit "Isusumbong Kita Sa Tatay Ko".

My deepest condolences go out to the respective family of Ram Revilla, Mr. Ricky Pempengco and Direk Boots Plata.
