BAGUIO CITY - A man was found dead 30 feet below road level in Camp 1 in Tuba, Benguet at around 11:40 a.m. on Monday.

His yellow bike was seen hanging on a tree when his body was found.

Initial investigation of the PNP Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) suggested that the man must have fallen off a cliff while riding his bike after failing to see the edge of the road.

Residents claimed to have seen the man on his bicycle on Sunday afternoon.

However, none of them recognized the victim.

The Tuba Municipal Police is still trying to identify the victim, who was wearing a red t-shirt and orange shorts.
