MANILA -- The corpse of a former policeman was found inside a drum a month after he went missing in Peñablanca, Cagayan, police said Wednesday.

The victim, Arshid Najid, 42, went missing last month after he went out of their house for a walk.

Najir was discharged from the police service after he went absent without leave in 1995.

On Sunday, his decaying body was found inside a drum buried in a vacant lot in Brgy. Lannig in Solana, Cagayan.

The victim's family denied the police's request for an autopsy.

Police are still investigating the case. -- report from Harris Julio, ABS-CBN News Cagayan Valley
