A staff member of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (Owwa) and a Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) duty marshal tried to contact the worker by phone to inform him that his relatives had delivered groceries for him, but the victim did not answer.

The Owwa staff and PCG marshal then went to the victim’s room and knocked on the door several times but got no response. After forcibly opening the door, they found his body inside the bathroom.
