An escapee has died while being treated at Laguna Medical Center following a grenade blast inside his home in Pagsanjan, Laguna.

The fugitive, identified as Nelson Romulo, suffered multiple shrapnel wounds to the head and body.

Romulo was detained at a jail facility in Mulanay, Quezon for charges of estafa and illegal possession of explosives but escaped in August 2015.

“Ang kaso niya pag-iingat din ng granada which is a non-bailable offense. Tumakas sya sa bilangguan,” Pagsanjan Chief of Police PSinsp Marlon Comia said.

According to Pagsanjan Police, Romulo accidentally removed the pin from a grenade which then exploded.
