The Mysterious Death of Julie Vega


After every celebrity death comes the rumors. The most peculiar and mystifying rumor becomes the most accepted of all stories. And finally, this rumor end up as an urban legend. From a factual information, this is added by opinions of other people, and the teller altered them so his/her hearers become interested. That's a simple formula of making a famous urban legend.

One of the most popular celebrity death with an urban legend is Julie Vega's. Her cause-of-death story morphed into a much more interesting gossip. Ever since I was a kid, I always hear those claims of how she really died, who took her life, and why did she die at a very young age.

Anyway, let's just try to discuss the mysterious death of Julie Vega from the utmost bottom of all reasons and/or answer.

Julie Vega



Julie Pearl Apostol Postigo (popularly known as Julie Vega) was born on May 21, 1968, and died at the age of 16 on May 6, 1985, 15 days before her birthday. She is a very good Filipino child actress, singer, and commercial model. She won Famas Best Child Actress by playing as Angelita in her 1979 movie entitled Mga Mata ni Angelita, and as Lucia in her 1980 movie Durugin si Totoy Bato.[1]

She is the only girl and the youngest in six children of Dr. Julio Postigo and Perla Postigo.

She studied at the Our Lady of Sacred Heart School from grade school till first year high school before transferring to St. Joseph's College where she finished her high school.

She was discovered by Film and stage Director Lamberto Avellana, and actress Miss Boots Anson-Roa in 1975. She was performing at a Christmas party.

She started to become famous from portraying as Angelita in the movie Mga Mata ni Angelita which made her won the award. Her other known role was her GMA Network's soap opera, Anna Liza. This soap opera caught the sympathy and affection of Filipinos which made her more popular. That time, Flor de Luna in ABS-CBN was her greatest rival, roled by Janice de Belen. That role should have been Julie's, but she declined because of her tight schedule.[1]

She is also known in her portrayals in Mga Basang Sisiw, Isang Bala Ka Lang, Durugin si Totoy Bato and Lovingly Yours, Helen: The Movie.

Lovingly Yours, Helen





Lovingly Yours, Helen is a Sunday afternoon program aired on GMA-7 from 1980 to 1996. This evolved into a television drama anthology from a daily counseling program on radio with the same title aired in DZBB.[2]

In 1984, because of its great popularity, they decided to turn it into an anthology movie.

The first episode of the movie was a horror-drama, which starred Julie Vega, Anita Linda and Coney Reyes. The second episode was drama, then the third one is a comedy-drama.[2]

Julie Vega roled as Ida in the first episode of the film. The shooting was done in an old house in Mt. Manalmon which is located in San Miguel, Bulacan.

This movie is actually the last film Julie Vega had before she died. The story is about this little girl who was a daughter of a mortal woman and a demon. This demon frequently possessed her.

The Rumor



I am not yet born at the time of her popularity and death. So I only knew her from the movies and rumors.





The first time I watch the movie Lovingly Yours, Helen, I was still a kid, and it really scared everything in me. The way she portrayed the possessed Ida made it much frightening. For me, she is the Emily Rose of the Philippines. Everytime I remember her face with bubbly mouth and her demonic voice, it really creates a nightmare.

She used to be an energetic and lively girl before they started filming the scary episode. Rumor has it, that after the shooting, few days later, she started to get sick and died eventually in a young age. Thus, people blamed the said movie. For what reason?

There are rumored reasons why she died. Some are connected to the movie, some are personal. Here's the alleged explanation of her death:
  • According to the rumor, she was cursed by a supernatural being called engkantada when they shoot this movie in San Miguel, Bulacan. This beings were disturb and disrespected by the movie staffs so they took her life as punishment. When she died, they said, her body is as if still alive - still soft, warm, and sweaty.

  • Other say, there are lamang-lupas (Land monsters) in the place of filming which fell in love to her. And still, people say that her soul was now living with them in the woods of Mt. Manalmon.
    On one account, Julie saw a bearded child many times in the temporary comfort room they built. They even made a sacrifice to appease the said being, and as respect to the place.

  • Another rumor has it that a Spanish ghost was fond of her, that's why this ghost took her life. During the time when she was to be buried, a spirit-questor claimed he saw Julie Vega's ghost floating over her coffin. She might be still alive at that same time.

  • There's another much scientific rumor, that she took a secret diet which lead her to death.

  • Another rumor blames the house they bought in 1982 using Julie's earnings. They started to get unlucky after purchasing it. A hundred days after the acquisition, her brother Jeffrey was stabbed to death inside a car.

  • After Julie was buried, it was said, that her song Somewhere in My Past was playing in her room while her parents were in their room.

    Conclusion





    She started to get ill after her high school graduation in 1985. She was complaining of extreme weakness and lack of sensation in her lower body. Her parents brought her to a private hospital for diagnosis and treatment. After that, she was diagnosed with a demyelinating disease. It is a disease where their is a loss of fatty covering myelin of nerve fiber. As she was getting worse, her parents transferred to Quezon Institute.

    As she was confined there, she also got bronchopneumonia which make her condition worse.

    Then she was transferred again to the Lung Center of the Philippines in Quezon City on May 6, 1985, and she died at around 90 minutes later after her arrival at the hospital's intensive care unit. Her death is caused by Cardiac arrest secondary to Bronchopneumonia. Her death left Anna Liza incomplete.

    That's what really killed her. However, I cannot say that the rumors about the engkanto is not true, because almost all people who knew her claims she died of engkanto curse. These creatures are unexplicable beings, and no one knows when they attack people.

    Before she actually died, her family consulted a clairvoyant to know who killed Jeffrey. The clairvoyant asked them if they have a daughter. After saying yes, she warned them to take care of the child because she's about to die. Thus, Julie Vega's family realized the omen was true.

      3. Hey, tama na. If I commit mistakes on my grammar, it's normal. I'm a Filipino at Tagalog po ang first and main language ko. Wag kayong mag-away dito. My blog is for my countrymen. That's the reason why I created this. Marami nang nagsabi na mali ang grammar ko, but I took it positively. Kung gusto niyo, magtulungan tayong lahat. Itama natin ang mga maling sentences. Nakikita niyo naman di ba? PHILIPPINE URBAN LEGEND. Dala ng blog na to ang bansa natin, meaning hindi lang ako ang may responsibility nito. Yes, this blog is mine, but kita niyo naman, tinago ko ang totoong identity ko kasi ayokong ang pangalan ko lang ang sumikat, kundi ang bansa natin. I thought Filipinos can be united as one. Remember the People Power? We started it before other country did it for themselves.
        Please.

      2. What you wrote is almost the same as this article: http://philippinetales.weebly.com/claimed-encounters/february-22nd-2013

        And notice your Rumor #1 is almost the same as the one written there. Both of you are almost there, but not quite exact. The truth is, she was indeed likened by the "engkanto", a fallen angel to be exact. And she was sacrificed by the illuminati/freemasons to the fallen rebel in exchange of some priceless items buried somewhere there guarded by these rebels.

        In order to be rich and popular, you need to be part of the illuminati. Julie was part of it, as in the case of charice, pacquiao, and all politicians (from vice mayor to president), music artists, showbiz people (vice ganda and the rest), businessmen (ayala, henry sy, etc), generals, etc etc. julie was sacrificed too early because of these "barter items". The movie location was not coincidence, it was planned.

        Julie was married to the rebel "king", and I hope she has likened the new dimension she is now in. She can still be freed but she is no longer a normal human being, so she can not be seen by the public anymore.

        This is just an icing of the cake. ;-) Believe it or not, it doesn't matter. I just wanted to share some light on this matter.

Share ko lang po, Kung mapapansin nyo rin dun sa tatlong beses nyang palipat lipat ng hospital, magsimula sa private hospital, quezon institute at ang huli lung center, diba nag mukhang tatsulok o triangle ang pagkakaporma. Eh, ang sinisimbulo na hugis ng illuminati diba tatsulok na meron isang mata sa gitna.

    21. I work at a government agency. Isa sa mga officemates ko ay pinsan ni Julie Vega. Sabi niya, ang totoong dahilan kung bakit namatay si Julie Vega ay sinumpa siya ng isang matanda na fan ni Julie Vega during the taping of lovingly yours helen. Hindi daw pinalapit ang matanda sa kanya kaya nagalit ito. Kinausap nila ang matanda kung pwede bang bawiin ang sumpa pero hindi na daw pwede. Nainis talaga ako dahil napakasayang naman dahil ganun ang ikinamatay niya. Ito po ang totoong nangyari.

    29. Madam, ang story po ng episode ni Julie was, anak sya ni Lito Anzures na di naniniwala sa Diyos, at ni Anita Linda na madasalin. Sister nya si Coney Reyes. Napossess sya due to lack of faith ng tatay nya. Andun din si Joonie Gamboa na gumanap na pari. The movie is in youtube divided into 3 parts.
