T&T Girl Commits Suicide After Mom Seizes Phone

Trinidad Express:-  A 16-year-old girl from Wallerfield committed suicide by poisoning after her mother took away her cellphone on Saturday.

According to police reports, around 12 p.m. the girl visited her mother’s workplace at WASA Plant, along Block 5, Wallerfield, to collect the keys for the house.

The girl returned home and was in the company of her 13-year-old sister and brother.

The mother told police she arrived home half an hour later and, upon calling out for her elder daughter, there was no response.

The mother then checked her daughter’s bedroom and found the door locked.

The door was eventually forced open and the teenager was found unconscious in the room.

An alarm was raised and ­relatives took the girl to the ­Arima Health Facility, where she was pronounced dead.

Police investigators discovered an orange twist juice container which had a green liquid concealed within it.

During an interview with the police, the mother revealed she had taken away her daughter’s cellphone after relatives discovered she had been posting revealing photographs on social media.


  1. Not the first one and not the last,feel bad for the girl,we are getting this all over the Caribean

  2. Children, especially teenagers, HAVE TO and NEED TO be made aware of how precious their lives are; so as not to take their lives over trivial matters. Their self esteem needs to be built up, and made aware of self, and not material matters. Time for parents to buck up on that.
