KAPAMILYA actor Miko Palanca has passed away. The actor, who left ABS-CBN in 2012, reportedly jumped from the rooftop of a mall in San Juan City on Dec. 8 at 3:56 p.m.
A source said Miko was supposedly seen on CCTV making his way on foot to the mall where he entered through the North side.
According to a police report, there was no identification on the body and the victim only had a cellular phone with him.
