SAN JOSE DE BUENAVISTA, Antique — The body of a 72-year-old man was found in an advanced state of decomposition inside his home in Barangay Liberty, Lapuz, Iloilo on Monday afternoon, August 1.

The man’s family explained that they did not leave the body to rot and were waiting for funeral services to get him.
