Prisoner Found Dead In His Temporary Detention Cell In A Baguio City Police Station With A Shoelace Around His Neck

A male inmate was found dead in his temporary detention cell at a police station in Baguio City Saturday morning (December 6). The man was found with a shoelace around his neck which strongly suggests that he may have committed suicide.

The man has been identified as Glen Cerezo Valle. He was found by a policeman in his temporary detention cell in Station 3 of the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO). According to a police report, in the morning of December 6, a cop saw Valle in his cell seemingly sitting but with his head and face covered by a black jacket.

When the cop entered the detention cell to check on Valle, that's when he saw the shoelace around his neck. The other end of the shoestring was tied to the metal hinge of the cell door.

Valle was immediately brought to the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) but he was pronounced dead on arrival. Valle's body was taken to the BGHMC's morgue.

Additionally, Valle had just been arrested the day before somewhere in Victoria Village in Baguio City. Valle was taken into custody during a buy bust operation in said Village by members of the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) and Police Regional Office Cordillera (PROCOR).

[Correction: An earlier version of this article wrongly mentioned that Valle died at the Baguio City Jail. Valle died at Station 3 of the BCPO. We've made a mistake and we apologize for it.]
