A mentally-challenged man who was recently treated at the National Center for Mental Health (NCMH) hanged himself to death yesterday morning in Malabon City.

Alejandro Adriano, 35, of Interior Sacristia, Bgy. San Agustin, was discovered dead by his father Amado, 62, inside his room at around 6:30 a.m.
 
Police homicide investigators PO2 Jose Romeo Germinal II and PO2 Aaron Blanco said the victim looped a cable wire around his neck and tied the other end to the wooden stairway.
     
Amado said his son was suffering from serious depression probably due to his mental disorder.
