The police began to investigate Sammer and his mother for the Shabu traffic. Shortly before he was killed, the police called them in for verifications, but Sammer tried to protect his mother by taking all the blame, since she already had a record.

The police didn't let her attend the funeral of her son because her case was classified in section 5 & 11. Section five is for drug dealers, and 11 is for users.
After the trial, she will be transferred from the police station to the main jail in Manila.

Over the last few months the president Duterte is clearing the country from drug dealers with his death squads.
Sammer was among one of these.
Half Phillipino and half Jordanian, son of a drug dealer mother and Shabu addicted, he was dragged into dealing methamphetamine by his own mother.
Father of five children, despite the warning of the President had continued to sell shabu.
One night he was called out of his house and shot instantly.
Immediately after,her mother was jailed for drug possession, and has been denied permission to attend the funeral of his son and most likely will be transferred to the main prison in Manila.
