A forest guard ended his own life by stabbing himself in the chest inside their guard house at Sitio Vista Alegre, Barangay Tolosa last Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Margarito Delos Reyes y Alfonso, 31 years old, a security guard and resident of Sitio Campo 2, Barangay Tolosa.

At around 10:30am, the victim’s body was found lifeless in a supine position inside the guard house.  A 12-inch long dagger was also recovered beside the body.

Initial investigation showed that Delos Reyes had been suffering from depression due to his wife’s illness.

The information was also confirmed by Placido Reyes, Tolosa Barangay Kagawad and uncle of the victim.

Reyes said that his nephew had been complaining about his wife’s condition.

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