A German allegedly hanged himself inside his residence in Makati City after he broke up with his girlfriend last Sunday, police said.
Police said the foreigner, identified as Florian Schroder, 37, was found hanging inside a built-in cabinet dresser with a rope looped around his neck inside his rented house on Recoletos Street in Barangay Urdaneta Village, Makati, late Sunday afternoon.
The victim’s body was discovered by his German friends when they paid a visit at his residence.
SPO2 Alfred Reyes, case investigator, said two German friends of the victim got worried when Schroder did not answer any of their calls and text messages.
In his last message to his friends, Schroder said he and his long-time girlfriend Jule Tulach had broken apart. He said Tulach has left him already and returned to Germany.
The friends decided to check on the victim and were shocked to see Schroder dead.
Recovered from the victim’s room was a suicide note, in German language, addressed to his family, friends and girlfriend.
Police are still conducting further investigation on the incident. (Anna Liza Villas-Alavaren)
