Wrapped in Packaging Tape, Dead Body of Alleged Snatcher Found In EDSA


What at first appeared to be an ordinary pile of garbage turned out to be a dead body wrapped with packaging tape and a cardboard that bears the words, “Huwag ako tularan. Snatcher ako sa EDSA."

The gruesome discovery was made by Christine Jimenez Beteño and her friends who were walking along EDSA near the Grand Central Terminal on July 10 after midnight.

They mistook the pile for garbage until they noticed clumps of hair jutting out of it, Beteño said in a social media post. She also posted photos from the scene. She said they notified the authorities who immediately responded.

This is just one of the reported incidents of slain bodies wrapped in packaging tape being found all over the country, as alleged drug pushers and criminals are brought to justice by extrajudicial means.

On Thursday, a policeman was found dead in Meycauayan City, Bulacan. His body had multiple gunshot wounds. He, too, had a placard. It read, “Pulis na pusher. Wag tularan.”

Since the Philippine National Police (PNP) bolstered its campaign against illegal drugs, many photos of dead bodies had been making rounds on social media.

Senator Leila De Lima called on the President to take action on the vigilante killings of suspected criminals. As the former head of Commission of Human Rights, De Lima vowed to investigate the extrajudicial killings. She said that the police must give the suspects due process, or the country would turn into a killing field.

Extrajudicial killings have become a divisive issue. Some believe in killing criminals for swift, instant justice, while others argue that true justice must always be in accordance with the law.
