Such a tragedy indeed, but, because the workers are beating a deadline for an upcoming festival, Imelda Marcos, the First Lady, commanded the workers to leave the dead bodies buried inside the cement and just cover it with another layer of cement. People who have experienced paranormal activities in this place heard the walls talk because of the people that were buried alive.
