An out of school teen was found dead by the police in the yard of a boarding house in Barangay Poblacion, Taytay, Wednesday afternoon.
Alias “Boboy”, 16, a resident of San Lorenzo in the same barangay, was found lying dead on the ground between the boarding house and a broken bamboo fence, said Taytay municipal police chief Capt. Roel Tattao.
Initial police investigation said Boboy was found by Angelica Matulac, a rural health unit nurse at around 5:10 p.m. in San Lorenzo.
Tattao said the case is still under investigation and is waiting for the autopsy report on the teen’s body.
“Hindi pa alam ‘yong motive, kaya tinitingnan pa namin kasi wala siyang signs, mga indications ng hacking, o ano man. Pero may mga itim-itim doon sa ulo niya at saka sa katawan. ‘Yong labi niya parang ini-slice, hindi ko alam kung kinagat ng aso, o metal bladed weapon na ini-slice. Hindi pa natin ma-conclude kasi i-autopsy pa, para kung mag-file man at para magkaroon tayo ng lead sa imbestigasyon na i-co-conduct,” he said.
Tattao said the boy was reported lost for one day, but they could not understand why worms would be found eating at his eyes and head.
“One day lang naman daw nawala ‘yong bata sabi ko nga parang ang bilis mauod. Pero ganoon talaga ‘yong mga pictures na nakita ko kagabi na ipinakita ng investigator, kinain na ng uod ‘yong mata, ‘yong ulo,” he said.
Tattao is assuring the family that they will still conduct a follow up investigation to determine the reason behind Boboy’s death.
