SADDENED by an accusation that he stole cash from an appliance store, a barangay tanod in Daanbantayan town, northern Cebu committed suicide by hanging himself from a mango tree.
Joselito Rosell was found by his 18-year-old son suspended from a branch of a mango tree with a nylon rope tied around his around 5 a.m. last Monday.

I love you mama.” (Mama forgive me for committing suicide because I was embarrassed with the accusation. Take care of our children. I love you),” read the note.
