Monrovia Teen Commits Suicide

By Susan Motander

A 16-year-old Monrovia teenager was found unresponsive in her home on Wednesday afternoon. The young girl’s older sister called Monrovia Police for assistance shortly before 2 p.m. Neither police nor firefighter paramedics were able to revive her.
According to Monrovia Police Department, the young woman, who is thought to have been despondent over problems in a personal relationship, hanged herself. She had apparently fashioned a noose out of a scarf.
Since no foul play was indicated, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office will complete the investigation. Monrovia Police Chaplin Johnson was sent to assist the family.
