Nyanza: Siaya Man Commits Suicide Over His Daughter's 13000 Shillings Hospital Bill

 Police in Rarieda Sub-County are investigating the death of a 55-year-old man in the village of Tuoro, west of Asembo, who allegedly committed suicide.

 Alfred Owuor is said to have committed suicide after one of the relatives who had promised to help him pay his daughter's hospital bill changed his mind at the last minute.

 According to West Asembo location chief Wycliffe Odiango, the man's body was discovered hanging from a tree with a rope around his neck in a nearby bush.

 He was found dead shortly after being told the parent was no longer going to support him.

 "The body was discovered by a neighbor who was going to tie up her goats and she raised the alarm," said the administrator.

 Odiango said the man was left alone after separating from his wife.

 Her daughter had been admitted to Bondo Sub-County Hospital and Sh 13,000 was needed for medication.

 The body was taken to the morgue at the Midiany Sub-County Hospital awaiting an autopsy.
