A female cadaver was found inside the swimming pool located in Sitio Tilanos, Barangay Jatian, Sibuco, Zamboanga del Norte last Monday.

The female cadaver, aged 55 to 60 years old, was said to bear gunshot wounds at the back of the head, left forearm and right leg.

The victim has no identification and was not known in the area.

That same day, another cadaver was discovered floating on a river located at Sitio Dungcaan, Barangay Balucanan, Siay, Zamboanga Sibugay.

The cadaver was later identified as a certain Ricky Poras Cuarte, 34 years old, married and a resident of Purok 1, Barangay Kimos, Siay, Zamboanga sibugay.

Police said that Cuarte might have fell and drowned while crossing a bamboo bridge leading to his house.

It was learned that Cuarte had been engaging in drinking sessions with buddies and was reported to have fell from the bamboo bridge in the past but was rescued by friends.

Police believe that the victim might have suffered the same misfortune which might have caused his death.  (LAJ)
