LANAO DEL NORTE -- A man believed to be a victim of summary execution was found in a field in Purok Trese, Linamon, Lanao del Norte on Wednesday morning, police said.

Local resident Florentino Rama said he was tending his cow when he noticed the body.

The man's hands were tied with cable, his eyes were blindfolded, and his mouth was covered with duct tape.

He was not wearing any upper garment, while his pants were pulled down and his underwear was exposed.

The victim was shot on the head, and had hack wounds on his nape and legs.

Residents cannot identify the victim, and no one saw who left the corpse on the field.

Last week, another summary execution victim was left in Linamon.

Investigation on the incident is ongoing. -- report from Roxanne Arevalo, ABS-CBN News Iligan
