A 42-year-old man committed suicide after his live-in partner left him with their two kids following their intense quarrel Tuesday morning in Valenzuela City.
The lifeless body of Elcid Pas, construction worker, was discovered by his uncle Rosendo Juliano, 67, hanging at the back of his house at 630 T. Santiago St., Bgy. Lingunan, with nylon cord looped around his neck and the other end tied to the steel water tank.
Investigation showed that Juliano went to his nephew’s house at around 7:50 a.m. to give him food for breakfast but when he knocked at the main door, the latter failed to open it.
Juliano decided to proceed at the back of the house and was surprised to see his nephew hanging from the steel water tank.
Police learned that the victim was suffering from depression after his live-in partner left him last week together with their two children due to their frequent fighting.
