A Korean national identified as Kim Jin Sung, 55 was found dead inside his apartment at Times Theater in Oroqueta Street, Sta. Cruz, Manila on Thursday night.
Police Officer 3 Jorlan Taluban, Manila Police District Homicide Section investigator, said the body was found at around 5 p.m. by Violeta Lopez, the building caretaker.
The caretaker smelled foul odor coming from the room so she asked assistance of a barangay official to check the apartment. When they opened the door, the lifeless body of the Korean national was blocking the doorway.
The landlady of the apartment said the Korean national had rashes and was sick when he paid his rent last Monday.
