Residents of Prestea in the Western Region were struck with awe when a 16-year-old Form Two pupil of Prestea Methodist Junior High School was found to have committed suicide.

Diana Annor is said to have hanged herself on a wooden cross bar in their room at Dagati Compound No 2.

An eyewitness, Rita Owusu, trader, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the deceased’s mother is a hairdresser and lives with Diana and her siblings.

She said in the early hours of May 24, 2018, Diana Annor ‘s mother left the house for her saloon to begin the day’s work and asked her to prepare and go to school.

According to the source, when she realized that her mother had left the house, she locked the room.

Madam Owusu said at about 1400 hours a neighbour who went looking for someone in the house saw through the window Diana’s body hanging on a wooden cross bar in their room.

She said the deceased’s mother was informed and she rushed home in tears.
