POLICE are baffled on the death of a 13-year- old Grade 8 student whose body was found hanging by his elder brother inside their house the other day in Muntinlupa City.

Simon Sunga, of 76 Kappiville Subd., Katihan, Bgy. Poblacion, Muntinlupa City, was declared dead on arrival at the Medical Center of Muntinlupa where he was rushed shortly after the discovery of his body.
   
Senior Supt. Nicolas Salvador, Muntinlupa police chief, said Sunga’s elder brother Roel, 17, found him hanging at 11 p.m. Sunday at the third floor of their house after their mother asked Roel to look for him.
   
Roel told police that after coming from the hospital, an unidentified man, whom he is not familiar with in the neighborhood, asked him what happened, prompting him to suspect something is wrong.
   
Police are still investigating to determine if there was foul play.
