BAGUIO CITY – A 77-year old woman was found lifeless by her own daughter inside their house after she reportedly hanged herself in a steel window inside her room with the use of a nylon cord at Pinsao Proper, Baguio City Wednesday morning.
Senior Superintendent George Daskeo, officer-in-charge of the Baguio City Police Office (BCPO), identified the victim as Lilian Pataweng Aniwasal, 77, resident at # 21 Pinsao Proper, Baguio City.
Initial investigation showed the victim reportedly locked herself inside her room but after an hour, her daughter, Alpha Aniwasal Ong, found her lifeless body hanging on the steel window with a nylon cord tied around her neck.
Her daughter and nephew reportedly untied the cord and subsequently brought the victim’s body to her room where rescuers initially declared her dead.
Responding police operatives reportedly found suicidal notes in the victim’s room while her family executed a waiver not to subject her body to the required autopsy.
