A school head teacher was found dead with a gunshot wound on his right temple in Cadiz City at about noon yesterday.
The body of Eric Junio Geronga, 37, of Pueblo Sta. Maria Subdivision in Barangay Daga, Cadiz City, was found in a sugarcane field, Chief Inspector Rocky Desear, Cadiz City police chief, said.
A 357 caliber revolver was found beside the body of the victim with one of six bullets fired, Desear said.
The victim who was married and the head teacher at the Gen. A. Lacson Elementary School in Cadiz City was believed to have died Saturday night but his body was found only at noon yesterday, he added.
The victim had informed a helper at his house at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday that he was going out, but failed to return, Desear said.
His wife was not aware that he was having problems, the police chief said.
The police are still determining whether the shooting was self inflicted, he added.*CPG
