An­other miss­ing teenager from Caloocan City was found by his par­ents in a morgue in Bu­la­can last Wed­nes­day.

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, Michael’s mother, said that her son left their house to earn money by driv­ing a tri­cy­cle. Genevie works as a barangay watch­man. Since then, her son did not re­turn home.

“Sabi niya ma­ma­masada lang siya ng tri­cy­cle pero hindi na siya bu­ma­lik,” Genevie said.

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 at Ev­er­green Sub­di­vi­sion, Barangay Gaya-gaya, San Jose del Monte, Bu­la­can around 3 p.m. on Wed­nes­day (Sept. 13).

Supt. Fitz Macar­i­ola, chief of the San Jose del Monte po­lice, said garbage col­lec­tors found the de­com­pos­ing body stuffed in a rice sack.

Macar­i­ola added that the body was wear­ing a black shirt and bas­ket­ball shorts and his hands were tied with a ny­lon cord.

Genevie and Dion­i­sio pos­i­tively iden­ti­fied that the de­com­pos­ing re­mains as that of their miss­ing son through his clothes and his marks on the back.

“Ki­lala ko ‘yung suot niya. ‘Yung suot niyang short, sa akin iyon,” Dion­i­sio said in a tele­vi­sion in­ter­view.

“Siya po iyon kasi maram­ing peklat sa likod. Nakuha niya iyon noong nadis­grasya siya sa mo­tor,” Genevie added.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said that the vic­tim was pos­si­bly killed and dumped some­where and car­ried down­stream by the cur­rent.

Po­lice have al­ready con­ducted an au­topsy and DNA test on the boy’s body.

The par­ents of Michael called for jus­tice for the death of their son.

“Gusto po namin ng hus­tisya para kay Michael. Marami po kam­ing pan­garap para sa anak namin,” Genevie said.

They said they are clue­less on the mo­tive be­hind the death of Michael, say­ing that he was a good man and a help­ful son.

Genevie added that her son had no vices other than smok­ing and drink­ing al­co­hol.

“Galit din po siya sa mga droga na iyan,” Genevie told this re­porter.
