Woman in Atebubuu reportedly commits suicide

A 28-year-old woman, who has been identified as Jennifer Mier, allegedly committed suicide by hanging at Atebubu in the Bono East Region. According to some residents, the deceased threatened to kill herself after her mother’s support for her younger sister. The deceased’s brother-in-law said her siblings mostly described her as being useless after she traveled and came home with nothing.

”She tried to stab herself on Wednesday but I was around and I managed to take the knife from her. Her husband has gone to the village to bring foodstuff so I decided to check on her this morning. I continued to search for her only to see her hanging on a tree,” he recounted.

The incident has been reported to the police with investigations underway. She left behind a husband and a child.
