AFTER all efforts to reconcile with his former live-in partner failed, a 23-year-old truck helper was said to have committed suicide yesterday morning, by first slashing his wrists and then hanging himself by the neck with the use of a belt inside his rented home in Tondo, Manila.
Police said victim Edmark Vicente, of 1622 Felix de Leon St., Tondo, Manila, left a note on a wall within his home, written in his own blood and which said: “I love you, to all loving me and I’m sorry Im give up myself.”
SPO2 Jonathan Bautista of the Manila Police District-Homicide Section said the victim’s body was found at 7 a.m., along with a suicide note which read: “Ang kirot dapat mefenamic ang inumin Jean Gadon. Paalam na. Ingat ka na lang palagi. Super Mahal Kita. Sana tumagal kayo ng bago mo. Nagmamahal, asawa ko”.
Police gathered that the victim and his live-in partner had been together for over a year when they engaged in a heavy fight which prompted Gadon to go back to her family home in Cavite.
Last August 16, the victim went to Cavite and tried to win Gaedon back but the latter reportedly refused and the victim went home frustrated.
Since then, police said the victim had been showing signs of depression and was usually locked up in his room. His suicide was discovered by his neighbor.
