THE decomposing body of a Chinese, identified as Ellen Yu Cham, was found in her rented apartment at Room 204 in Nemar Building, No. 265, Libertad Street in Pasay City (Metro Manila) on Monday. Cham’s body was found by security guard Rowel Vargas and building secretary Theresa Estrope when they knocked in her room to collect the monthly rent. Gerald Cham, the victim’s husband, told the police through an interpreter that her wife was suffering from a heart illness that could have caused her death. Cham’s cadaver was subjected to autopsy to determine the cause of death.
