JUST like so many others ahead of him, a Muslim was found dead in Port Area, Manila, with several bullet wounds in the body and a cardboard bearing the words ‘adik at pusher ako huwag tularan.’
Imam Asmani Harris reportedly declined to have the victim’s body brought to the funeral parlor and instead brought it straight to Absati mosque for the traditional Muslim burial. The victim was identified only as ‘Jaime’, 35 to 40 years old, about 5’7” tall and residing at Blk. 15, Lot 17, New Baseco Compound, Port Area, Manila.
SPO4 Glenzor Vallejo of the Manila Police District-Homicide Section said the victim was found bloodied by barangay tanod Jaime Orciano at 1:30 a.m. He immediately informed the police about it.
Police found at the scene five spent shells for cal. .45 gun while two sachets of shabu were allegedly found in the victim’s pocket.
