Based on the investigation of Makati Philippine National Police (PNP), Peña was seen entering the building on Friday, June 24 at around 9:30 pm. Regine Dioleste, the daughter of the caretaker of the building, claimed Peña trespassed in the said building.

This prompted Percival Diolete, the building’s caretaker, to seek the help of barangay officials to find Peña inside the building. Although Peña wasn’t found that night, his ID was discovered inside the stock room of the building.

Through the ID, Diolete was able to contact Peña’s father Arthur to inform him that his son had trespassed in the building but had immediately gone missing.

On Monday, Arthur with help of security guards from San Lorenzo Village searched for Peña inside the building. They found Peña’s body floating on flooded water about 5-feet deep at the 5th level basement of the building. It was reported that Peña’s body was in the stage of decomposition beyond recognition.
