A 25-year-old woman hanged himself after an argument with her mother at their residence at Barangay Batu, Siay Municipality, Zamboanga Sibugay Province last Monday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that the decomposed body of the female victim was found hanging lifeless from a tree by a certain Eric Pahilagao Batac, a resident of the area.

Five days earlier, the victim and her mother reportedly had an argument over the former’s live-in partner.

Later that day, the victim asked permission to buy medicine but failed to return home.

Thinking that the victim left for Zamboanga City with her lover, family members decided not to look for her.

Later that week, the victim’s body was found hanging lifeless from a rubber tree near a deep well with the use of a rope.

No traces of foul play was found by police.  (Remus Ong)
