A 21-YEAR-OLD man was believed to have committed suicide after he was found hanging inside a neighbor’s house in Sitio Lawis, Barangay Mambaling, Cebu City last Tuesday morning.
Police identified the man as Abdul Kadir Natangcop.
Renante Balmores, the owner of the house, said that prior to the incident he noticed Natangcop acting estranged and appeared to be depressed.
Natangcop reportedly showed such behavior after he allegedly asked for something but was not given by his mother.
Balmores found Natangcop inside the former’s house at 7:45 a.m.
He was taken to the Cebu City Medical Center, but he was declared dead on arrival.
SPO4 Alex Dacua of the Cebu City Police Homicide Section said his team did not found signs of struggle and external injuries that may indicate a foul play.
In Sitio Kalubihan, Maigang, Barili, Cebu, a 31-year-old farmer died after he allegedly shot himself inside his room at 6 p.m., Tuesday.
Alberto Antoni was taken to the Barili District Hospital but he died on the way there.
According to the information gathered by a team from the Barili Police Station led by PO2 Jessie Lloyd Sebial, Gina, Alberto’s sister, heard a gunshot inside his room prompting the sister to call the attention of their father Eusebio.
The family believed that Alberto committed suicide after they found him lying bloodied with a gun on his side.
Carlita, Alberto’s other sister, said that Alberto was a silent person and had suffered a nervous breakdown the past few days.
One caliber .22 magnum, two bullets and one empty shell were recovered from the crime scene. (Rhey Anne G. Alvarico, USJ-R Mass Comm)tern
