120 Inmates Bodies To Undergo Autopsy to Further Check their Cause of Death

INMATES BODIES – One hundred twenty (120) dead bodies of people deprived of liberty inside the New Bilibid Prison are set for autopsy.

The Philippines has the largest mega penitientiary across the globe – the New Bilibid Prison. Unfortunately, it is currently holding a huge number of inmates that is way beyond the total number of people that it can accommodate without posing much struggles on the people inside.

The NBP is filled with people coming from different walks of life and with different reasons why they are inside the national penitentiary. Many people die inside the NBP while serving their sentence.

Most of the inmates bodies are brought to a funeral parlor in Muntinlupa. However, many of them were not claimed by their families.
