As early as January 28 , the boyfriend of a 15-year-old private school student who committed suicide on Thursday last, will be charged for giving the victim ecstasy to sell to her peers at the institute.
The boyfriend is said to be 20-years-old and has confessed to investigators that he gave the illicit pills to the teen a few times. It was the deceased’s school friends who told the detectives about the boyfriend after her passing. According to information received, when the teen succumbed, her friends and teachers at the school were questioned by investigators. It was during interrogation that her peers revealed the name of the deceased’s boyfriend.
It was also revealed that it was the boyfriend who gave the teen ecstasy pills to sell in school. When the 20-year-old was called in for questioning, he confessed that he purchased the pills from a friend and subsequently gave it to the school girl.
Investigators are awaiting the result of a post mortem examination to reveal how the teen met her demise since some persons are claiming that she died from an ecstasy overdose while others say it was suicide.
According to information received, during lunch break at the school on Thursday, the student was seen ingesting a mystery pill. She was surrounded by a group of students who are also under investigation by the school for using the date rape drugs. The Guyana Standard has been informed that the student started vomiting almost immediately after she was seen ingesting the pill. She was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Some two months ago, the school’s administration called in ranks from the Custom Anti Narcotic Unit (CANU) and the Guyana Police Force to launch an investigation after some students were caught using the illicit drug.
The deceased was the main suspect in the investigation. Students in at least five schools across Regions Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) and Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) are under investigation for the use of the drug.
