The body of a 27-year-old construction worker was found inside his house in Quezon City Sunday, police said yesterday.
Reports reaching the Quezon City Police District-Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit identified the victim as Juancho Along, single, of Kasunduan Extension, Barangay Commonwealth.
QCPD-CIDU chief Senior Insp. Rodel Marcelo said the victim’s body was found at about 8 p.m. by neighbor Emily Braga. She knocked on the door several times to give food to the victim but failed to answer.
Braga forcibly opened the door and found the victim hanging on a wooden beam with a shoelace looped around his neck. Barangay officials called the police for investigation.
Police said the victim lives alone and was sad and upset several days prior to his death. (Francis T. Wakefield)
