When the parents of a missing teenager found their son in a morgue in Bulacan, their world fell apart as their dreams for him were crushed.
Michael Angelo Remecio, 16, a tricycle driver, who dreamed of becoming a cop, went missing after he left their house in Barangay 176, Caloocan City around 9 p.m. on August 26.
Genevie Remecio, 39, mother of Michael, said his eldest son left their house to earn some money by driving a tricycle. Genevie works as a barangay watchman.
After that, Genevie said her son never made it home. He just vanished.
“Sabi niya mamamasada lang siya ng tricycle pero hindi na siya bumalik (He just said that he will drive his tricycle to get some money but he never came back),” Genevie told the Manila Bulletin.
Genevie and her husband Dinisio went to a morgue in Bulacan after they heard that a decomposing body of a male was found in a stream along Evergreen Subdivision, Barangay Gaya-gaya, San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan, around 3 p.m. on Wednesday.
Supt. Fitz Macariola, chief of the San Jose del Monte police, said garbage collectors found the decomposing body placed in a rice sack after they noticed a bad smell.
Macariola added that the man was wearing a black shirt and basketball shorts and his hands had been tied with a nylon cord.
Genevie and Dionisio positively identified that the decomposing remains was their missing son through the clothes on the body and his marks at the back.
“Kilala ko yung suot niya. Yung suot niyang short, sa akin iyon. (I know what he wears. The short that he wears was mine),” Dionisio said in a television interview.
“Siya po iyon kasi maraming peklat sa likod. Nakuha niya iyon noong nadisgrasya siya sa motor (That was him because he has marks at his back. He had them when he had a motor accident),” Genevie added.
Investigators said the victim was possibly killed and dumped somewhere and carried downstream by the current.
