Rappler reported that the video included in the site was a video report regarding the death of Genesis Agoncillo in 2018.

Other credible news sites also did not report about the supposed death of Paray in his jail cell.

As reported by the ABS-CBN News, Paray is currently detained at the San Juan City Police Station. He was arrested after he held hostage about 50 people inside Greenhills Shopping Center last Monday. Paray is also facing multiple criminal charges.

Meanwhile, in a report by the GMA News (authored by Joahna Leo Casilao), Paray said that he has no regrets after the hostage-taking incident.

"At least kahit papaano, nangyari yung gusto ko na through media magkaroon sila ng public apology, ma-expose sila. Sa part na 'yun, masaya ako," he said.

As previously reported by KAMI, San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora said that Paray refused to get the P1 million in exchange for the hostages because he just wanted his voice to be heard.
