An elevator operator facing a grave health problem decided to end his life by hanging himself inside their home in Ayala last Monday.

Police identified the fatality as Joel Lacio Buenaventura, married, and an elevator operator working in Manila.

Initial investigation showed that relatives discovered the victim’s body hanging inside their house in Zone 1, Ayala last Monday morning.

Joel had been telling his father that he would rather kill himself than continue living with his health problem.

The victim reportedly could not sleep for the past two weeks.

Around 2am last Monday, Joel asked for food from his brother.  A few hours later, the family discovered Joel hanging lifeless inside the family home.

The cadaver was brought to a funeral parlor for post mortem examination.  (Dan Toribio)
