Police said a teenager, who committed suicide yesterday, Wednesday, Dec. 26 at her home on Bridge Street, Vieux Fort, left a note.

Police said 15-year-old Jasma Josephine Lubin was discovered by her father Andy Lubin “suspended by a rope from her bedroom ceiling”.

Lubin, a form three student of the Vieux Fort Comprehensive Secondary School, was transported to St. Jude’s hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

A note “for her loved ones” was also discovered by the police officers who responded to the report at about 2 pm, according to a police press release.

A post mortem examination is scheduled for Thursday, December 27, 2012.

Investigations are continuing.

Following news of her death on Boxing Day, friends began to post condolence messages on Lubin’s wall. Some expressed disbelief that she had died while others wondered why she would kill herself.

“She was a really good athlete and played netball for her school,” said a friend of the deceased.

St. Lucia News Online understands that Lubin lived with her father while her mom resides in Barbados.

  7. Very sad indeed. Our children are facing so many challenges in society today. Their very peers coerce them into participating in something and then neglect and scoff at them. They return home hoping to feel wanted and understood but as parents we long to be stern to build character. We must find that balance that allows discipline and concern, love and care and understanding to coexist

  10. Our youths in this country need people that they can talk to,express their feelings and to be sympathetic to their needs. We as parents need to listen when our children talk to us. Sometimes they send out clues to us about what is bothering them and we ignore that.We need to take our responsibilities as parents/guardians more serious. We think that our children don't get stressed like us? Well they do and they need our help and support.

  11. i am sad. this reminds me of the time i wanted to kill myself. i just wanted to give up, find a way out, i wanted to be happy and free! but comfort and love seem to run from me.i know a lot of people feel like they cant go on anymore but we some how find a reason to stay alive, forgive others who hurt us and laugh again. the youth feel angry lost and unwanted. we need to speak to them with a careing tone of voice and give them the freedom to make their on mistakes and surport them nomater the outcome. unconditional love is what we the youth crave, need and cant live without.
