A man was found dead at his apartment in Sampaloc, Manila, Wednesday night in an apparent suicide.

The police identified the victim as Leonardo Archie Abellera, 42, of 887-C Sto. Tomas Street.

A fellow tenant recalled last seeing him alive on Monday and sensed something was wrong when a foul smell started coming from victim's unit two days later.

Barangay officials were alerted and found Abellera hanging and already in a state of decomposition.

The Manila Police District's homicide division gathered that the man lived alone and was separated from his wife last year.
