A public sanitation worker discovered a young girl hanging by her neck inside a public toilet in Tokyo’s Bunkyo Ward at about 11:40 a.m. on Wednesday, police said Thursday. The sanitation worker called police and paramedics attempted to revive the girl to no effect. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital a short time later.
According to police, the girl was a third-year student at a nearby school. Police later found what appeared to be a suicide note in the girl’s room at home. The note read, “I’m shy and I have no friends. I tried to commit suicide once before, but it didn’t work.”
Her family reported her missing when she didn’t come home on Tuesday night.© News reports
