Police are investigating the deaths of two unidentified males, whose bodies were found in sacks and recovered in two places in Negros Oriental last week.
A police report early Thursday said that an unidentified body was found at Sitio Himampangon, Barangay Balaas in Manjuyod town at around 6 p.m. Wednesday.
The body was placed in a sack of corn and sealed with packing tape. It was discovered in a cliff around 70 meters from the national highway.
Manjuyod police chief Rogelio Pacificar said in an interview Thursday morning that they found a note on the body that said “adikako, huwag mong tularan (I’m an addict, don’t follow my example)”.
Pacificar said no one had witnessed the dumping of the body, whose identity still remains unknown.
Also, he said they cannot yet establish a connection between the deaths of the man found in Himampangon and that in nearby Bais City.
Earlier on the same day, a police report said a concerned citizen reported to Bais City Police Station the discovery of a body at Sitio Cantulingi, Barangay Manlipac in Bais City.
Erlina Opas Allones, of legal age and a resident of the place, discovered the body at around 11 a.m. Wednesday.
Eddie Reconalia, of legal age, and a resident of Panalaan, Bais City, told the police that while he was cultivating his farm, he saw a white pick-up vehicle parked near the scene of the recovery at around 11 a.m.
The cadaver was placed in two sacks that were joined to fit the whole body, believed to be from a person in another place and had been thrown from the highway towards a slope about 35 meters downward.
Initial findings revealed that both thighs had bruises and the left fist had stitched lacerated wounds.
The victim was approximately 50 years old, 5'4'' in height, and with a dark complexion.*JFP/PNA
