FOUND DEAD

A 29-YEAR-OLD old woman was found by her husband hanging by the neck in their house in barangay Ibo, Lapu-Lapu City on Tuesday dawn.

Cecilia Mahilum was rushed by her husband to the hospital to no avail.

The woman’s husband, Julito, told police that he and his wife didn’t have a fight. He said Cecilia had been suffering from insomnia which may have drove her to commit suicide.

Julito told police that he and his wife had a dinner past 7 p.m. Monday before he left for work.

The husband said he went home a few hours later and saw his wife suspended from the ceiling with a belt tied around her neck.

Police said there were no signs of foul play in the woman’s death.

In a separate incident, a 50-year-old man was found hanging dead in his home in barangay Labangon, Cebu city.

Police identified the fatality as Albert Abatayo, a native of Carcar City.

The man’s live-in partner, Rosemarie Amparado, told police she arrived home past 10 p.m. yesterday and saw the man hanging with a rope lopped around his neck.

Abatayo was declared dead at the Cebu City Medical Center./Correspondents NORMAN V. MENDOZA AND TWEENY MALINAO
