MANILA, Philippines – Authorities revealed that they recovered evidence showing that two Taguig high school students took an unknown drug before their deaths.
Taguig City Police Director Col. Robert Baesa said the type of drug had not yet been determined as toxicology tests on the bodies of the two teenagers were still ongoing.
Two students, whose names were withheld by police, were found dead at Signal Village High School on November 10.
“Our investigation into this matter is still ongoing. We are still waiting for the toxicology results and so far we are being questioned,” Baesa told Radyo 630.
