Police have launched an investigation into the death of a student who was found hanging by the neck on Saturday.
The student, a female, who is said to be 15 years old, is said to have died in hospital after being rushed there.
Police in Colonaire, which covers the South Rivers district, have declined to comment on the development.
They directed iWitness News to Commissioner of Police Colin John.
John, however, did not answer calls on Saturday morning.
The death of the student comes just under two weeks after that of a Mesopotamia man, who was found dead in similar circumstances.
On June 5, the mother of the 20-year-old resident of Glenside, Mesopotamia, found his body hanging at their home about 7:15 a.m., police said.
The mother summoned the police and the district physician pronounced the man dead at the scene.
