A sugar cane farm worker was found dead floating in Paniqui-on River in Barangay Jerusalem in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental around 2:30 in the afternoon Friday.
Chief Inspector Rocky Desear, Cadiz PNP OIC chief, identified the victim as Roger Gale Daytik, 43, married of Purok Sto. Nino in Barangay Jerusalem, Cadiz.
Based on the report of his wife, the victim acted strangely since July 30, claiming he was being followed by unidentified persons.
He was running to avoid those he claimed were following him and even reached other places and their relatives in the hinterlands of Barangay Jerusalem where he was sweating and was allowed to sleep.
The next morning, he was fetched by his family and was brought home.
He was brought to a “quack “doctor who claimed he was being influenced by “hidden people” in the forest.
On August 2, he ran again from their house and since then was not found by his family.
It was only on Friday afternoon that he was seen floating in the river.
His wife claimed, they found a snake and he killed it and buried it on the ground. After that he claimed to suffer a headache.*
