Another missing Caloocan teen found in morgue
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.
