BATAC, Ilocos Norte, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) – It was a surprise burial, documented only by a video tape posted by his daughter Imee. The body of Ferdinand E. Marcos was finally buried in the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani, amid all the controversy and protest.
But wait, while the late dictator’s body was being interred at LNMB, the same body was being viewed by tourists at the mausoleum in Batac, Ilocos Norte.
According to reports by Rappler, the Marcos ‘body’ in the refrigerated crypt was only a wax figure. Maybe, it has always been that way?
So now, Marcos is credited with a Guiness World Record of being the only world leader who is buried in two different places at the same time. Intact, that is. But it also begs the question, which Marcos was buried last week at LNMB?
Will the real Marcos body please rise?
