FISHERMEN found a dead man floating in the waters off Barangay Macabalan, this city, past 5 am yesterday.
The man was identified by his parents as 27-year-old Jeffry Espillogo of Green Heights, Barangay Balulang.
The man’s parents, Juanito and Gloria Espillogo, said their son had gone missing on Saturday.
“Wala ni siya maka-inom sa iyang tambal nga maintainance,” said Gloria.
The younger Espillogo reportedly had suffered mental health problems since his high school days at the Balulang National High School.
“Sige man gud na siya ka pasmo kay lakawan lage mao tong naingon na siya ana nadaut ang ulo,” Juanito said.
The body, already in an advanced state of decomposition, was first spotted by fishermen who subsequently brought it to shore.
The body was brought to the Bollozos Funeral Homes, and the police said an autopsy would be conducted to determine exactly how the young man died.
