The mother of Leticia Kyere Pinaman, a 14-year-old student of Miracle Junior High School at Sunyani, who has been reported to have committed suicide, has debunked the claims.
In a video sighted on the Instagram, the heartbroken woman indicated that, according to the doctor, her daughter was dead before she was hanged.
She gave the different indications that, according to the doctor, people exhibit when they are hanged alive but added that Leticia did not have any.
“According to the doctor, there was no sign of death by hanging. Her tongue didn’t protrude, she didn’t pass any faecal matter or urine. And that means, she was dead before getting hanged”, her statement translates.
Meanwhile, The Housemistress of the school, Gifty Acheampong, spoke to Citi News narrating her side of the story in the words:
“I was in the kitchen when I heard the students shouting. I rushed there and saw her hanging, so I quickly rushed to the church auditorium to call the proprietor and the proprietress.
The Sunyani Division Police Crime Officer, DSP Kingsley Wiredu, confirmed the incident and said his outfit is gathering facts and would brief the media at the appropriate time.
The body of the student has been deposited at the Bono Regional Hospital Morgue.
