December 06, 2018

AN 18-YEAR-OLD girl on Wednesday hanged herself in their boarding house following a spat with her boyfriend in Pagadian City.

The body of the victim, whose name was withheld, was found inside the Derong’s Boarding House in Purok Lower Golden Shower in Balangasan District, Pagadian City at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

The teenager looped a belt  around her neck and tied the other end  to the upper portion of their double-decker bed to hang herself.

The victim, a resident of Purok 3 in Bgy. Talamimi, Buug, Zamboanga Sibugay, had a heated argument with her boyfriend, Ivan Rey Villamor. 

The man reportedly left the place to attend his class at the Yllana Bayview College. He left the young girl crying in her room.

Natividad Derong, the owner of the boarding house, told the police that shortly after Villamor left, she heard the victim crying before there was a complete silence.

Curious, the woman said she opened the door and screamed when she found the teenager hanging. 

The victim was rushed to the Jofeliña Hospital in Gatas District, Pagadian City, where an attending physician declared her dead upon arrival.

Police Regional Office 9 spokeswoman Chief Insp. Helen Galvez said that the incident is being investigated by the Pagadian City Police Office.
