MANILA – A man was found dead in a ravine beside Marcos Highway in Barangay Barangka, Marikina City before dawn Friday.

Barangka resident Efren de Jose said he was awoken by a single gunshot. When he checked where the sound came from, he found the man's body some three meters from the busy thoroughfare.

He said he also saw a car speeding away from the area where the body was found.

The unidentified victim's body bore several tattoo marks, including one on his side which says "Sputnik".

A knife, pair of scissors, and screwdriver were also recovered near his body.

Police have yet to determine what was used to kill the victim, and whether he was killed in the area or not. – report from Carolyn Bonquin, ABS-CBN News
