The criminal investigation unit of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) found out that the foot was cut off from a diabetic patient named Avelino Romaluan of the Quezon Memorial General Hospital.
Radio reporter Allan Gatus said the body part came with the name of the doctor who supposedly cut off the foot.
Police said they are still investigating why the foot was not properly disposed. – Kimberly Jane T. Tan, GMANews.TV
