Singer-comedian Blakdyak was found lifeless inside his rented condominium unit in Sampaloc, Manila on Monday night.
According to the officials of the Philippine National Police, the son of the singer-comedian found Blakdyak lifeless at around 6 p.m.
Based on the report, his son found him in the room naked and his head is wrapped with plastic bag.
He was last seen alive at around 2:30 a.m on Monday.

He headlined shows and gigs, and was collaborating with veteran composer Lito Camo for a new album.
He was married to Twinkle Estanislao with whom he has four children.
In 2014, he was in the news after he was arrested due to malicious mischief, alarm and scandal, and illegal possession of drug paraphernalia in his apartment in Cubao.
