Body of salesman
found floating: cops
The body of a salesman was found floating off the shorelines of Brgy. 2, Bacolod City at about 9 a.m. Saturday.
The fatality was identified as Allan Porcel, 30, of Zone 6 in Brgy. Handumanan, Bacolod, by Senior Police Officer 1 Mario dela Torre, chief investigator of Police Station 2.
Dela Torre said Porcel’s wife Therecita identified the body at the morgue of the Alisbo Memorial Chapels yesterday, De la Torre said.
Investigation showed that the Porcel, who is sells sculptures of saints was found lifeless by fishermen Vicente Cuyos, 40 Wendel Goria, 26 and Luisito Goria, 30, while they were fishing about 2 nautical miles from the shorelines of Purok Cagaycay.
De la Torre said hematomas were seen on Porcel’s left ear and head when his body was found. He, however, said this does not indicate foul play as Porcel could have acquired these hematomas upon hitting hard objects during the recovery of his body.
Theresita Porcel told the police that she last saw her husband alive on Friday morning when he left their house for a drinking session with his friends in Brgy. 2.
She said she believes her husband may have fallen into a river in Zone 6 on his way home and the current carried his body to the shorelines of Brgy. 2.
Police Station 2 has already requested for an autopsy to ascertain the cause of Porcel’s death.*
