PPC Peter Sitai says his crime investigators who have been to the scene have yet to find evidence as to whether or not the student, whose name has not been revealed, may have died as a result of suicide.
He says what the crime investigators had been told so far is the student had a rope around his neck when his body was found between 1pm and 2pm of June 1, 2021.
Mr. Sitai adds his crime investigators had discovered the young Tikopian male student had a failed relationship with a girl.
But he says investigations into the boy’s death are continuing, and he appeals to those with information on the fatal incident to report them to the CID Office in Kira Kira Police Headquarters.
