Police are investigating the apparent suicide of a repatriated overseas Filipino worker (OFW)  found dead while hanging from a stairway railing in Pasay City on Sunday morning.

The victim was identified as Algen Cadungog, 42, and a native of Demapaco Libungan, Cotabato City. She arrived in the country from Kuwait on 4 April and was undergoing quarantine in a lodging house in Barangay 76 Zone 10 with other OFW.

Cadungog was found dead at 6 a.m. by another OFW with a scarf looped around her neck and was tied in the staircase railing.

According to the OFW who Cadungog was with for weeks, she was last seen alive and seemed stressful at around 4:00 a.m., two hours before she was found dead.

Authorities said Cadungog has allegedly tried to commit suicide back in Kuwait but her reasons for doing so were unknown.

Pasay City Public Information disclosed that the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration has communicated with Cadungog’s family.
