FHM Nation, let's all pray for the soul of FHM Babe Aiko Baniqued-Moore, who passed away due to severe head injuries last Wednesday, November 13.
According to an ABS-CBN News report published yesterday, Aiko, 28, died after being allegedly beaten by her husband of four years, James Edward Moore II.

Reports indicate that the incident took place Wednesday afternoon at the Moores’ residence in Rockwell Amorsolo West Condominiums.
One of Aiko's best friends told reporters that Baniqued-Moore's niece Cristina Rose and personal assistant Marvin Sunga saw the suspect "beating up his wife by banging her head against the wall." Both witnesses also claim that Jim had handcuffed her.
The two were able to help Aiko escape, but James caught up with them near the condominium’s elevator. This is where the suspect allegedly "smashed her wife's head."

The building's security rushed to Aiko’s aid and brought her to the Makati Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Moments after the incident, Jim is said to have called his ex-wife in Utah to confess everything and to ask for forgiveness before allegedly attempting to commit suicide (he was apprehended just in time by the authorities). He is currently under investigation and is being monitored at the Ospital ng Makati.
While we have no prior reason to assume that the Moores were having marital troubles prior to this event, it is worth noting that Aiko and Jim also made the headlines over a year ago when the two were involved in a kidnap-for-ransom incident.
Now we ask: What the hell went wrong? FHM got in touch with Aiko's friend and fellow FHM Babe and car show model, Christine Marquez, to help us further understand the situation.
