THE body of a man shot dead greeted shocked residents of Barangay Balulang yesterday morning.
The corpse was found thrown in an area near a road in Sitio Manggahan that has been turned by residents into a common garbage dump.
SPO1 Jayson Landar of the Carmen police said the dead man was murdered — he was shot to the back of the head — and likely dumped in the area.
The victim, still unidentified, was found by villagers at around 6 am who then called for police assistance.
Landar said he examined the body and found the victim with a gunshot would at the back of the head.
None of the residents of Sitio Manggahan could identify the victim, he said.
“Wala nay naka-ila aning biktima dinhi sa Balulang so sa akong pagto-o, gilabay lang kini dinhi,” Landar said.
Neither did the police find any spent bullet or any clue at the crime scene.
The body was brought to the Bolluzos Funeral Homes where the Scene of the Crime Operatives would conduct an autopsy in the hope of finding clues.
