A 25-year-old man took his own life after realizing that his amulet, which would ostensibly end his problems, failed to work.
Pulupandan police reported that the man, whose name is withheld by DNX, was found lifeless and hanging on the ceiling by his own father at 10 am yesterday, 25 September 2022.
The victim had used a telephone wire to hang himself from the ceiling of their toilet.
The father said that the victim had complained that the anting-anting (amulet) he had bought to solve his problems appeared to be useless.
His friends also told authorities that several weeks ago, the victim had threatened to take his own life before his birthday on 1 October 2022 if his problems remain unsolved.
He was rushed to a nearby health unit but was pronounced dead on arrival by the attending physician.
