A 14-year-old girl who received news of her boyfriend’s suicide hanged  herself to death at her aunt’s residence in Barangay Divisoria last Tuesday.

Chief Insp. Helen Galvez, Police Regional Office-9 Information Officer, identified the victim as a certain Crisbel, a 14-year-old resident of Barangay Divisoria.

The victim’s body was found hanging inside the family’s home with the use of an abaca rope.

Prior to the incident, Crisbel received a call from her mother in Siquijor Province that the girl’s boyfriend committed suicide.

Later that day, Crisbel asked her aunt if tying her neck with a rope would cause death.  Her aunt reportedly replied in the affirmative.

Around 2:30 p.m. the aunt found her niece’s lifeless body hanging from the ceiling inside their residence.

Crisbel was rushed to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival  due to Asphyxia secondary to strangulation.  (Dan Toribio)
