MANILA, Philippines -- A man died after allegedly hanging himself inside his home in Iloilo on Friday morning, authorities said.

The body of the 22-year-old victim was found hanging via a blanket inside his room.

Boarders living in the same house said they were shocked to see the victim's lifeless body, noting that the man still joined them in a videoke session Thursday night.

They said it is possible that the victim committed suicide after being left by his live-in partner, who is now living in Metro Manila.

Police, meanwhile, refused to reveal the identity of the victim, as investigations are still ongoing. -- Report from John Fernandez, ABS0CBN News Iloilo
