According to SIPSE, a 42 year-old woman discovered the terrible scene when entering her house, located on Calle 25-A in Sodzil Norte, where her 24 year-old niece was hanging by the neck.
After lowering the body to the floor and trying to give her CPR, the woman ended up calling 911 , and unfortunately nothing could be done by the Paramedics who arrived minutes later, since the victim did not have vital signs.
Agents of the Semefo arrived at the house to proceed with the removal of the corpse and its subsequent transfer to the Coroner’s office to carry out the autopsy.
