BAGUIO CITY – A still unidentified male individual was found lifeless hanging on the potting shed of the Bureau of Plan Industry (BPI) compound along Guisad Central here Wednesday morning.
Police described the recovered cadaver to be 5 feet and 2 inches in height, medium built, fair complexion and was wearing a faded black shirt, faded among pants and pink sandals.
Witnesses informed police operatives that while they were passing along the road, they happened to see the body of the victim hanging on the potting shed with a white cloth tied around his neck while its other end was tied on the said shed.
Earlier, several passers-by saw the unidentified male individual passing through the area and was said to have in his possession the white cloth which he used to reportedly commit suicide.
