MANILA, Philippines—Former TV host Pepe Pimentel was found dead inside their house in Quezon City Thursday, police said.

Senior Superintendent Marcelino Pedroso of the Quezon City police said Pimentel, 83, was found dead with a wound to his head inside the bathroom of their house at No. 37 Scout Tuazon, Barangay (village) Laging Handa in Quezon City around 10:30 a.m.

Initial investigation revealed that Pimentel took a bath, but did not come out of the bathroom after some 30 minutes, prompting his wife and house helper to open the door.

“May sugat s’ya sa ulo,” Pedroso said, but investigators have yet to determine whether he simply slipped on the floor as he was taking a bath, or he suffered a heart attack.

The case has been placed for further investigation.

Pimentel’s body was cremated immediately and the ashes will be taken to the Pinaglabanan Church in San Juan City later in the day, radio reports said.

Pimentel was a game show host of “Kwarta o Kahon” that lasted for over three decades on television.
