Police are investigating an alleged suicide case of a 13-year-old student, Mohammad Kamara in the Iron Factory community.
Little Kamara who came from school Tuesday afternoon was later discovered dead on the porch of his father's house, but reason for the alleged suicide is yet to be established.
A family member and a Magistrate identified as Joseph Fayiah have alleged a foul-play in the death of little Kamara and vowed to ensure that an in-depth investigation is conducted.
“How he hung himself when everybody in the yard is saying that the body was seen lying on the ground? If the man was hung whether by himself or by someone, how the robe was detached from his neck?” magistrate Fayiah wondered.
He pointed out: “We want to go to the depth of this matter; we are citizens and no one will play on our intelligence; we will demand an autopsy from the Government of Liberia; our child is dead and we want to know how and why he died.”
But a kinsman to the father Attorney Losene Bility said no foul-play has been suspected based on his observation, but said if anyone has a contrary view, they can prove it otherwise.
Bility said: “No one produces evidence against himself and I will not indict anyone”
He said he would go into the merit of the case because the police will make determination into the matter.
Although the police are yet to release their findings to press, the father of the deceased Morris Kamara said they are making arrangement with other family members to carry out what he calls background investigation to establish the actual cause of death.
According to our reporter who was on the scene, the physical look of the deceased was terrible with blood pulling from his noise.
Little Kamara was a 5th grader living with his father Morris Kamara who is a local cocoa dealer.
Mr. Morris claimed that he was at his business site when he got the news of his son's death.
