The customer who died after drinking an alleged poisoned milk tea in Sampaloc, Manila, was laid to rest on Saturday morning.

On April 9, Dagohoy and her boyfriend Arnold Aydalla ordered a “Hokkaido”-flavored milk tea from ErgoCha Milk Tea House in Manila but complained to the owner that the drink they ordered tasted different.

The owner of the tea house, William Abrigo, denied the claim and even tasted the milk tea for himself.

According to the preliminary findings of the Department of Health (DOH), it did not find any toxic substance in the milk tea. The DOH and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are still conducting further tests to determine the cause of the deaths of Dagohoy and Abrigo.
