Police continue to investigate a suspected suicide in the Lower Ottos community.
In a press statement released last night, May 3, Police confirmed that the body of a 54-year-old Jamaican national was discovered –hanging by the neck from a tree in his backyard – at around 3:50 p.m. on Tuesday, May 3.
According to reports, someone from the neighborhood made the discovery and notified the Police, and the man was pronounced dead by a medical doctor at approximately 5:13 p.m.
The unnamed man reportedly was last seen alive at around 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 1.
Meanwhile, it was alleged, on Tuesday night, that there had been another self-killing.
A video in wide circulation shows a woman covered in blood and holding a long knife, which she places on her chest. In tears, she asks whether people know how it feels to be left out and like nobody cares.
Meanwhile, an accompanying photograph shows her supposedly dead body lying on a floor.
There has been no official confirmation of this alleged suicide, however; and the location in which the incident supposedly occurred has not been identified.
Yet another video shows a hearse, which appears to belong to a local funeral home, driving in a community where a sign in front of a home bears the words: “Will miss you all.”
It is unclear whether this message is linked to the death of the Jamaican man.
