Naked man found dead in Manila


MANILA, Philippines—An intoxicated naked man jumped to his death in Manila early Tuesday, said a report by Erwin Aguilon of Radyo Inquirer 990AM.

Police identified the victim as William Lacbayo, 47, a resident of Camarin, Caloocan City.

Lacbayo, the report said, was a construction worker.

The investigation said he jumped from the third floor of a construction site at Honorio Lopez boulevard corner Kaunlaran St., Balut, Tondo, Manila early Tuesday.

The Manila Police District homicide division said the victim was drunk when he tried to commit suicide.

Co-workers of Lacbayo told the police he showed signs of depression and everytime he’s drunk, he always tried to end his life by making an attempt to jump from the third floor. John Daryl Dimalanta

    Suicidal tendencies in the Philippines are the output of poisonous fruits due to the trees of corruption. While the hundreds of government offcials are enjoying the luxuries of life thru the abundance of goods looted or plundered, millions are penniles and jobless as a result of dire economic situation. Only the intervention from the heavens of exposing these thieves in robes and uniforms can alleviate the increasing rate of poverty in Philippines.

    Had Enrile and Gigi or Atong or GMA donated some of their billions to these poor people, maybe this man will change his mind about committing suicide. Many more indigents are mulling the idea of ending their miseries and pains thru short circuitng suicides.
