An American was found dead along a roadway near his home in the town of Cordova on Friday night.
65-year-old Kenneth Larrivee was discovered 500 metres from his home after returning from a benefit dance in the local area. Neighbours who found Larrivee slumped on the ground thought he had just got drunk at the dance so went to tell his wife that he was passed out.
When Larrivee’s wife arrived she discovered a large open wound on his head. She rushed him to the Lapu Lapu District Hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
Police on Mactan Island said that it is most likely the American slipped and hit his head due to being intoxicated – no official report has been released on the cause of death.
