Parañaque septic tank yields skeletons

House allegedly abandoned by a kidnap victim, says NBI

By ,

Two human skeletons were retrieved on Friday from the septic tank of a house reportedly abandoned by its owner and now serving as the barracks for security guards in a Parañaque City subdivision.

An official of the National Bureau of Investigation said the bones were found behind a two-story house in Barangay Moonwalk around 4 p.m., four hours after the NBI started the search.

The search for more bodies was still ongoing at press time, with the NBI tapping the services of sewage cleaners from the Malabanan company.

Romy Bon Huy Lim, chief of the NBI Criminal Intelligence Division, said the bureau earlier received a tip that murder victims had been dumped in the tank.

The informant, Lim said, also claimed that the house on the corner of Multinational Avenue and Tel Aviv Street once belonged to a “kidnap victim” who had left the country.

One of the skeletons still had the hands bound with telephone cable, and both victims appeared to have been dead for about a month judging by the state of decomposition, he said.

Lim said the house currently serves as the barracks for village security guards, 12 of whom were present when NBI agents arrived at the place.

The guards were later brought to the NBI headquarters in Manila for questioning.

“The guards were questioned because they were near the place where the bones were found but they are not yet considered suspects,” he said.

They maintained that “they knew nothing, heard nothing” about how the two corpses ended up in the tank, he said.

The gruesome discovery came two weeks after the remains of Kim Ji-hun, a Korean national, were found in a condominium’s water tank in Sucat, also in Parañaque.
