Possible yan, possible pero it depends on a lot of factors primarily yung environment…Kung ang katawan ay nasa ibabaw lang ng lupa, kasi exposed aside from being exposed sa araw at ulan nandyan nga yung mga hayop at pupwede nga nila ikalat,” she said.

She added that it is also possible that Galleno’s corpse cannot be smelled, especially if the wind blows in a different direction.
