MANILA, Philippines – Police authorities on Tuesday morning found the body of a suspected salvage victim in Bacoor town in Cavite province.

Citing reports from Bacoor’s Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO), PO2 Romar Sinong of the Bacoor police said the unidentified man might have been strangled to death because he had rope marks on his neck.

"Mayroon tayong na-receive na tawag mga 7:30 ng umaga. May isang lalaki na salvage victim sa Niyog Tres. Nasa gilid po ito ng kalsada. Wala naman saksak, maliban sa marka sa leeg. Findings ng SOCO ang kaniyang pagkamatay, sinakal po sa pamamagitan ng lubid," Sinong said in an interview on dzBB radio.

[We received a call about 7:30 a.m. saying a supposed salvage victim was found near the Niyog Tres area. He was found at the roadside. He did not sustain any stab wounds, but there were marks on his neck. According to SOCO findings, he might have been strangled.]

Sinong likewise noted that found on top of the man’s body was a placard that read: "Huwag niyo akong tularan. Magnanakaw ako [Don’t emulate me, I’m a thief]."

Sinong said that they are now investigating the incident even as they have yet to identify the victim. He added that the man’s body was taken to one Funeral Mesina in Las Piñas City. - Sophia Dedace, GMANews.TV
