Residents of Cabato Road, Tumaga found the body of what appeared as a victim of summary execution (“salvage”) floating along the Tumaga river yesterday morning.
The dead man was hogtied with an empty plastic container fastened to his hands  so his body won’t sink as what residents believed.

Police said the body bore multiple hack wounds. He was wearing orange t-shirt and denim jeans. He was described as 35 to 40 years old, medium built, with fair complexion and sporting close cropped hair.

Police said the victim was not a resident of the said place as no one in the area could identify him.

Investigators suspected the victim was seized elsewhere and brought to Cabato Road where he was executed and his body was dumped into the river.
The body was brought to the Villa Funeral Parlor for post mortem examination. — Dan Toribio Jr.
