Police are investigating the circumstances behind the death of an intoxicated man who reportedly passed away while on his way to his residence in Sitio Mialim, Vitali last Friday.

The victim was identified as Jose Cuartocruz Torres, married and a resident of Taloptap, Vitali district.

Torres’ cadaver was discovered at 6:40 a.m. within the property of a certain Alvin Caputol.

Initial investigation showed that prior to the incident,  Torres had a drinking session with his friends and nephew.

After consuming bottles of beer the members of the group parted ways.

However at around 6:40 a.m. a 13-year old girl found Torres lying on the ground, apparently dead.

The girl immediately reported the incident to her mother who then contacted authorities.

During ocular investigation, police concluded that Torres could have slid on the culvert and hit his head on a hard object which caused his death.

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