Police are still baffled by the death of an allegedly mentally deranged man who was discovered naked and dead inside a cemetery in barangay Upper Calarian last Saturday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that the presence of the cadaver  at the Mason Cemetery in Upper Calarian was reported by concerned citizens at 9:30am last Saturday.

The victim was described as having black complexion, short black spiky hair, from 25 to 30 years old, small in body build and around 5’2 in height.

There were no visible injuries nor tattoos or other means of identification on the body.

Investigation showed that the victim, who was already naked, was last seen Friday afternoon by construction workers of the Zamboanga City Water District (ZCWD) inside the cemetery.

The victim was regularly seen roaming and sleeping inside cemeteries within the area by residents.

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