While Cornejo's legal counsel, Atty. Salvador Panelo, admitted in an official statement that the 23-year-old model slashed her wrist Sunday morning, the PNP-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) made a clarification.

CIDG chief Benjamin Magalong told ABS-CBN News that the detainee just "inscribed" the letters "W" and "R" using the grooming tool around 3 a.m. on July 13.

The initials stand for "Women's Rights", explained Ex-GMA network executive Rod Cornejo, her grandfather. The wound, he said, was "superficial" which means the cut was only on the surface of her skin.

The older Cornejo reportedly said his granddaughter did it as "a silent protest to remind herself of her mission" adding that "Deniece is hurting because of the way the case is being handled".

Last Friday, July 11, the city prosecutor of Taguig junked the second rape case filed by Cornejo against actor-host Vhong Navarro. Her lawyer described the case dismissal as "anomalous", claiming that the complainant had already withdrawn it over a week earlier.

Navarro's accuser succeeded in getting public attention after staging the alleged attempted suicide eventhough her camp apparently failed to show evidence such as a photo of Deniece Cornejo's slashed wrist.
