A teenager hanged themselves in an apparent suicide at Hacienda Bernabe in Barangay Salvacion, Murcia, Negros Occidental, Thursday.
Police refused to disclose the victim’s identity, but confirmed they were 17 years old and a resident of the said area.
According to reports released by Murcia police, the victim’s remains were found hanging inside their grandmother’s home and was already in a state of decomposition.
When police interviewed the victim’s family and friends, they determined the victim had locked themselves in their room since Tuesday, April 10.
They also found out the victim was suffering from depression, which they believe could have been a trigger for suicide./DGB, WDJ
