Cebu City, Philippines – Investigators from the Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) have identified the person responsible of giving the party drug ecstasy to Ashley Abad that led to her death last month.

But Chief Superintendent Debold Sinas, director of the Police Regional Office in Central Visayas (PRO-7), refused to divulge the name of the person in order not to preempt the still ongoing investigation.
