A 70-year old man shot himself to death inside their house in Mampang last Friday.

A police report identified the victim as Porferio Bengil y Tangjan, separated.

The victim’s daughter, Hilda Francisco y Bengil told police investigators that her father’s sickness might have prompted him to take his own life.

A 1911 model .45 caliber pistol was recovered by police beside the victim’s body.

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