MANILA -- A man who was arrested for allegedly raping his own daughter killed himself while inside a police station in Castilla, Sorsogon.

The suspect was arrested early Wednesday morning for allegedly raping his 13-year old daughter.

However, he complained of stomache as he was being transported to Castilla Police Station.

According to SPO1 Johanes Tayam, a doctor said that the suspect was only suffering from nerves so they brought him back to the police station.

After a few hours, one of the policemen inside the station noticed that the suspect was already dead and foaming at the mouth.

He was immediately brought to the hospital but he did not survive.

The police received information that the suspect possibly drank poison prior to his arrest.

Upon investigation, they found a bottle filled with what seemed like juice but smelled like pesticide.

According to a policeman, he saw the suspect drink from the bottle, but allowed him to do so thinking that he was only drinking some juice.

The police took samples of the pesticide which the suspect allegedly drunk to check if it really is poisonous.

The suspect's body will also undergo an autopsy to know the cause of his death.

The suspect has been previously imprisoned for murder, but was given parole and returned to his family. -- report by Jose Carretero, ABS-CBN News Bicol
