The lifeless and already decomposing body of a man hanging on a tree was found by a farmer in Lubao town in Pampanga last week.
Investigators estimated Manacmul to have been dead for four to five days when they found him based on the level of decay his body was already in.
Manacmul’s remains were positively identified by his live-in partner Donna based on what he was wearing when she last saw him.
“Alam ko po yun yung suot niyang shorts at damit nung umalis siya... Pinaalis ko siya kasi ni-rape niya anak ko nagsumbong sa tita niya mula pa grade 4 ngayon grade 6 na,” she said.
Authorities are trying to determine whether Manacmul was killed or took his own life following the rape accusations.
