Duterte security official found dead in Palace compound

Gen. Lope Dago, said Major Harim Gonzaga, 37, was found dead inside his quarters with a gunshot wound to his chest.

A member of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) was found dead inside his quarters at Malacañang Park, an official said Tuesday.

In a press briefing, PSG commander, Brig.

Dagoy said Gonzaga's wife, who works as part of the Presidential escort, said she and Gonzaga did not have any recent major fight.

Initial investigation showed Gonzaga succumbed to a lone gunshot wound that pierced his heart. "It could also be an accident but we leave it up to SOCO (scene of the crime operatives)", he said. A spent shell and ammunition were recovered at the scene and are now with the SOCO.

"We really can not speculate on the real cause of death".

"Presidential Security Group does not want to speculate on his death and will wait for the official findings of SOCO as the Command pays highest respect to the family of his immediate family", the PSG said in a statement as it expressed grief and condolences to the soldier's family. Is it suicide? Accidental firing?

Dagoy said the incident is now being investigated by the Philippine National Police.
