MANILA – A scavenger discovered an abandoned garbage bag containing the body of a man believed to be a victim of summary execution in Quezon City.

Joselito Arellano said he found the garbage bag in Barangay San Roque in Quezon Avenue.

"Nung pagka-kapa ko ng paa ko, parang matigas. Pag basura kasi yung parang lolobo pa, kaya naghinala na ako. Humingi na ng tulong," said Arellano.

When opened, police found the body of a man around 35 to 40 years old. His face was covered with a sack.

A close inspection showed that the man had a "Commando" tattoo on his arm and the name "Roland" inked on his chest.

The chest had a visibly sign of punctured wound possibly from an ice pick. His neck bore signs of strangulation.

Authorities are still investigating the incident. -- Report from Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN News
