TALAVERA, Nueva Ecija — The decomposing remains of a man was found bound with packaging tape and bearing a cardboard sign that says “Happy Holy Week” in a farm here on Wednesday.

The body of 49-year-old Ranidel Mendoza was found dumped in the rice fields of Barangay (village) Bacal 2 at about 8 a.m., police said.

The cardboard sign strapped on the body said, “Nakalbo sa pagtutulak ayaw lumubay wag tularan pinapatay, happee holiweek (He grew bald from drug pushing … did not stop …  do not emulate … be killed. Happy Holy Week).”


Mendoza did not bear any wounds, police said. And forensic investigators have yet to determine how he was killed. CBB/rga
