CAMP OLIVAS - A Finnish tourist was found dead inside his rented room at Vistillana Lodge along Charlotte Street, Barangay Balibago, Angeles City on Monday.
Senior Superintendent Danilo Bautista, Angeles City police director, identified the victim as Kari Allan Pentinsaari, a tourist from Finland who was temporarily billeted at said lodge.
Bautista said that the victim was last seen on Saturday by Isabela Pineda, desk clerk of Vistillana who informed him about the time of his check-out.
Investigation showed that the victim should check-out at about 7:00 a.m. on Monday but failed to do so.
Pineda told police investigators that they tried to call Pentinsaari in his room and then knocked on the door. When the victim did not answer, the hotel management decided to open the victim's room using a duplicate key, Bautista said.
He said that Pineda and employees of the hotel saw the victim dead.
Bautista said his men are still investigating the cause of the victim's death. (Ric Sapnu)
