A 31-YEAR-OLD man from Barangay Macabalan committed a suicide yesterday morning apparently due to family problems.
Excecutive M/Sgt. Ricky Bagas of the Macabalan police identified the suicide as Robie Calma of Sitio Parola, Macabalan.
Calma, who worked as a welder, hanged himself inside his room. It was his father who found the body.
Police said Calma tied an electric wire around his neck, and attached one end to the ceiling.
Bagas said Calma apparently suffered from depression because of an undisclosed family problem. Members of his family refused to talk about it.
But it was learned that the suicide’s mother has left for Ozamiz City allegedly because of misunderstandings with her husband.
Bagas said the family members decided not to allow an autopsy because they were already convinced that it was a case of suicide.
