Citing relatives, police said the couple suffered headaches, dizziness, nausea, stomach aches, vomiting and were dazed after consuming lambanog in the evening of Dec. 25.

Their son, Ramon, surrendered to authorities two plastic bottles that still contained a small amount of lambanog that he found in his parents’ house. The bottle and its contents were sent for tests.

Ramon pointed to authorities the local store which sold the lambanog. Its owner also pointed to another store at the town center which allegedly was the source of her lambanog supply.

Police said the owner of the store at the town center refused to cooperate in the investigation.

The bodies of Gerry and Rosi would be autopsied to determine the exact cause of their deaths.
