Deniece Cornejo turns herself in, poses for mugshots
The controversial model surrenders.
ANC reports that at 4 p.m. of Monday, May 5, model Deniece Cornejo surrendered to Philippine National Police Director-General Alan L. Purisima. She simply showed up at Camp Crame.
The report noted: "Cornejo was accompanied by her granduncle, Rod, whose statement had been read on Buzz ng Bayan on Sunday, May 4. It was he who had appealed to her to surrender."
Cornejo was then taken to the PNP-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group building, where she was processed at the Women and Children Protection Desk. There, she also posed for mugshots.

This isn’t a movie, so this means that the saga of Cornejo-who accused actor Vhong Navarro of rape and maintains that she didn’t try to blackmail him-is far from over.
Cornejo faces jail time for the serious illegal detention charge that Navarro filed against her in connection with his January 22 mauling. He has accused her-along with her friends Cedric Lee, Bernice Lee, Jose Paolo Calma, Ferdinand Guerrero, Jed Fernandez, and Zimmer Raz-of trying to blackmail him. (Note: Bernice Lee and Jose Paolo Calma were excluded from the serious illegal detention charge, though.)
