In a report over 10News WTSP.com, Jacqueline's mother Tess Parguian said her daughter could have been saved.

"She could still be with us," she said.

It took the police more than an hour to respond to a 911 call by a concerned citizen, who heard Jacqueline screaming inside the hotel room.

According to Dallas Morning News, Jacqueline and Peter had been married for 8 years. Peter worked as a DJ under the name Peter Mash.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help cover Jacqueline's funeral expenses and support her 2 young children, ages 2 and 8.

"We are most worried about the kids and praying they have a stable and healthy lifestyle in the future... Anything and everything will help us. We appreciate all of your love and support. God bless," the Parguian family said.

The GoFundMe page has so far raised more than $13,000 (P663,000) of their $30,000 (P1.5 million) goal.

It is the second incident this week involving Filipinas allegedly killed by their husbands in Texas.
