Suicide in Tubigon

Police dismissed any foul play involving an alleged suicide by a 57-year-old man from Tubigon on Friday, reports said.

The man was identified as William Ballon, 57, married, and of barangay Panaytayon, Tubigon.

Ballon was just discharged from the hospital after suffering from a myriad of diseases, police said.

Reports said the victim locked himself in his room and took his own life using a .38 caliber revolver.

The wife told the police, the husband was in a rush to go home and indicated he wanted to end his life.

Apparently, the wife shrugged off the husband’s red flags. While in the hospital, the husband repeated his threat to take his own life.

The police said the victim was driven to take his own life due to depression as a result of his health condition.
