A 34-year-old Filipino driver was reportedly found dead hanging from the ceiling of his room at his employer's luxury home in Deep Water Bay, early this morning, July 3.

A police spokesman said the body of the victim was discovered by a fellow male domestic helper,(apparently his brother), at 7:42 am inside the house on Deepwater Bay Road.

No suicide note was found.

An officer of the Consulate’s assistance to nationals section identified the victim as V. Pedroso, married with two children, and a native of Batad, Iloilo.

The officer said ATN was informed of the incident by Pedroso’s brother, who also works as a driver for the same Chinese employer as the victim.

The brother reportedly mentioned that Pedroso had been depressed by a family problem.

His family has already been informed while his brother is doing the paperwork for the repatriation of the victim’s remains and the benefits due his family from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.

The body of the victim was taken to Victoria Public Mortuary in Kennedy Town where it will be autopsied. Police are still investigating. - with a report by Merly Bunda
