KIDAPAWAN CITY -- The body of the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) who died more than a month ago in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) arrived here on Friday.

Government records showed that Argie Silva, 29, who worked in a construction company at the KSA since December last year, died on January 4 after he was allegedly hit by a steel billboard that fell during a sand storm.

But Amir Silva, the slain OFW's eldest brother, believed otherwise.

"We just can't accept his death just like that, we have to know deeper," the brother said.

Silva's body arrived at the Davao International Airport in Davao City on Thursday.

The Wood Haven Funeral Homes brought the body to his hometown in barangay Alegria in President Roxas, North Cotabato.

The elder Silva said his brother was a documented worker. His contract was set to end in 2014.

He sought justice as he urged authorities to dig deeper the death of his brother. (Malu C. Manar)
