A 25-YEAR-OLD lesbian hanged herself after allegedly parting ways with her girlfriend in Zamboanga City early morning yesterday, police said.
The body of Mary Chan Verallo was discovered hanging inside a boarding house in Lustre, Bgy. Sta. Catalina, Zamboanga City, by her landlord at 3:35 a.m., said the Police Regional Office 9.
Local policemen who rushed to the site found the victim hanging with a rope on her neck, the other end tied to the wooden beam of the room’s ceiling. The owner of the boarding house, identified as Ferryrose Corpin, said she last saw the victim last Saturday night.
Foul smell emanating from the victim’s room prompted the landlord to check the area. Police investigators said the victim could have been dead for about 24 hours already before her body was discovered.
Investigators discovered several handwritten notes made by the victim expressing her sadness over the end of her relationship with her unnamed girlfriend.
PRO9 director Chief Supt. Emmanuel Luis Licup ordered a thorough investigation into the incident.
