The Clarendon police are investigating a reported suicide involving 12-year-old Central High School student Renesha Henry.
She was found hanging from a tree in her yard in the farming community of Belle Plain, near Four Paths in Clarendon.
Renesha’s mother had reportedly earlier asked her to wash the dishes.
The mother had to be rushed to hospital after seeing her daughter dangling from the tree.
One relative told The Gleaner that the child appeared to have been having difficulty coping since the separation of her parents some time ago.
