MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said it would wait for the official autopsy before it “responds appropriately” to the suspicious death of an overseas Filipino worker in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Mary Jean Balag-ey Alberto, 44, allegedly jumped to her death from the 13th floor unit of her Moroccan employer in Abu Dhabi on Oct. 2.
