Tekax, is the number one municipality in cases of suicide in the State of Yucatán, with 3 cases in the last 15 days (two minors and one adult).

Mario Alberto Chan Sulub, 30 years old, hanged himself, in the property located on Calle 43 between 48 and 50 in the neighborhood known as “Colonia Estación”, in Tekax, Yucatán. His body was found, still hanging on Saturday February 15, around 10pm.

His cousin, Miguel Angel Ucán, found the body of Chan Sulub, who allegedly borrowed him the property to stay that night, since the deceased had his address on Calle 56 between 39 and 41 of the San Ignacio neighborhood, in the same city.

Miguel Angel tried helplessly to assist Mario Alberto, when he found him hanging from his neck, but he had been dead for several minutes already, and there was nothing to be done.

The other cases of suicide took place in colonia Lázaro Cárdenas and colonia Chunchucún, on Sunday February 2 and Tuesday 4, respectively.

Norma Angélica Peña Santacruz came back home on Calle 39 and 34, in the neighborhood known as colonia Chunchucún, and found the body of her 16 year old son (whose name was not revealed), hanging with a rope around his neck.

The other minor (Whose name was not revealed) was only 12 years old.
