MANILA, Philippines – A 38-year old man committed suicide by hanging himself in their house in Quezon City before dawn Monday.
According to case investigator PO3 Marlon Dela Vega, the body of Rexther Billones, single and jobless, was found hanging from the second floor’s ceiling of their residence in Pook Libis, Brgy. UP Campus, Diliman, QC.
Dela Vega said Billones was found by his brother Miguel at around 3:45 a.m. with a nylon rope looped around his neck.
He said Miguel had just arrived home and was about to go to sleep when he saw her brother hanging from the ceiling.
Miguel immediately told their mother, who reported the incident to the barangay officials and police.
Dela Vega admitted that police were still clueless on the motive behind the suicide.
However, he said the family has already asked police to stop the investigation because they were convinced that Rexther took his life and signed a waiver.
