2 Dead Men Found Along Marcos Highway In Poyopoy, Tuba, Benguet

Two still unidentified men were found on a ravine along a stretch of Marcos Highway within the vicinity of Poyopoy in Tuba, Benguet on Wednesday morning (October 15). The two male cadavers were found by garbage collectors between 8 and 9 in the morning of said date.

Based on a post-mortem examination conducted by Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) of the Baguio City Police, the cause of death for one of the victims is either because of a punctured wound on his head or asphyxia caused by strangulation. The cause of death for the other victim is also believed to be asphyxia because of strangulation.

The two men have heights of between 5'1'' and 5'3". They are believed to have been thrown at the ravine a day before they were found by garbage collectors.

The bodies of the two men were brought to the La Paz Funeraria. The Baguio City police is also calling on people who have missing relatives to go to La Paz Funeraria, the Baguio City Police Office, or to the Tuba Municipal Police Station for possible identification.

The stretch of Marcos Highway along Tuba is infamously known for a dumping ground for dead bodies. Prior to the men found this Wednesday, a dead man was also found there last March with his ankles tied and his eyes covered with masking tape.
