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.
