After being questioned by Sam, Teresa says that the monk could have shot him as he burst into the convent and was heard screaming.

Even at this point, it’s unclear whether Philippe is dead or alive. Teresa says she saw her father injured but then he left. However, his visit was poorly attended by Monk, indicating that he may have followed Philip to kill him.
