A MAN was found dead inside his trisikad at the corner of JR Borja-Aguinaldo Sts. yesterday morning. It was clear that he vomited blood before he died.
SPO1 Apollo de las Alas of the Cogon police identified the dead man as 57-year-old Leon Bangcayo of Salay town, Misamis Oriental.
De las Alas said Bangcayo was thought to have suffered from tuberculosis.
He said Bangcayo was found dead by his fellow trisikad drivers with blood oozing from his mouth.
Bangcayo’s fellow trisikad drivers told investigators that the man was seen engaging in a drinking binge the night before, and that he left drunk.
Police said Bangcayo had a daughter living in the neighborhood but he was known to habitually sleep in his trisikad.
Police advised Bongcayo’s daughter to subject her father to an autopsy. (Joey Nacalaban)
