Police are investigating the death of a treasure hunter whose decomposed body was found in Purok 1, Barangay Minlasag, Sibutad Municipality, Zamboanga del Norte last Sunday.

A Police Regional Office-9 report said that a certain Justo T. Ontolan discovered  the body of “Totong” Ronquillo, a Pagadian City treasure hunter.

Ronquillo was said to be suffering from  mental illness when he was reported missing five months ago.

The decomposed body was still clad in the victim’s yellow sweatshirt and camouflage shorts.

Authorities also found Ronquillo’s mobile phone, wrist watch and a small bottle with a piece of paper with Latin inscriptions.

Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) personnel will perform an autopsy on the body to determine the  victim’s cause of death. (Remus Ong)
