The body of a construction worker was discovered by his fellow workers inside the construction site of the Avida Flex Project, Makati Development Corporation, located at 7th Avenue Corner Planet, Bonifacio Global City, Ft. Bonifacio, in Taguig City.
The victim was identified as 24 year old Joseph Mamay from Bernado Square Subdivision, Better Living, Paranaque City.
Based from the initial investigation of PO3 Eric Escobia and PO3 Frederick Ivan Montaril of the Homicide Section of the Taguig Police, Mamay locked himself inside a room before taking his own life after.
The witnesses claimed that they didn’t hear any shots because the machine was loud and that the victim wrapped the gun he used with his own clothes before shooting himself in the chest.
Authorities are considering suicide as the cause of the victim’s death because they found a suicide note with “salamat sa lahat-lahat” and “mahal ko kayo Papa at mama. Sorry” written in it.
Mamay was known to be a quiet boy and always being out of the loop. His death remains a mystery to his relatives. (with report from Hermie Catig)
