Men of the Tetuan police station under Supt. Haywien Salvado are investigating the mysterious death of a public school teacher inside their house in Legazpi compound, Natividad St., Tetuan.

Rommel Legazpi y Rico, 48, single, a teacher of Talon-Talon National High School, was discovered dead inside the comfort room by his brother Gerard around 8 a.m. Monday.

Police said that Rommel was found sitting on the toilet bowl with his body leaning on the wall. Blood stains were scattered on the floor, according to investigators.

It was gathered that Rommel did not report to school on Friday last week.

Gerard, who is residing in another house inside the compound, told the police that around 6 p.m. on Thursday last week,  he and Rommel went for grocery in one of the stores along Veterans Avenue. Afterwards, they had a dinner in a fast food restaurant and later went home.

On Saturday and Sunday, Gerard’s sister in the United States called him to tell  that Rommel was not answering  her overseas call. She asked Gerard to check him in his house.

At 8 a.m. Monday, Gerard opened Rommel’s house through the kitchen  door and was terrified to see his brother dead in the toilet.

Supt. Salvado’s men were still gathering more information to determine the cause of Rommen’s death. —  Dan Toribio
