A KOREAN national said to be working at the Okada Casino was found dead the other day in his condominium unit in Malate, Manila.

The Manila Police District-homicide section identified the victim as Sung Chul Hahn, 55, of Unit 3172 Green Residences located No. 2241 Taft Avenue corner Castro St., Malate.

Investigation showed that the victim’s death was discovered  at around 11:20 a.m.

Records of the condominium show that on August 10,  the victim was brought to a hospital by his friend John Young due to breathing difficulty.  He was negative for COVID-19.

On August 14,  a resident from the 31st floor complained about stench coming from the victim’s unit.

When calls to the unit went unanswered, the administration staff opened the unit with a duplicate key and they were greeted with the sight of the victim who was already decomposing.
