UUM Student Found Hanged

News travel faster than any form of wave. Heard this piece of news yesterday from a friend. SMSed my junior to verify the truth. Saw the news in the New Straits Times today under Nation page 21.

"VARSITY STUDENT FOUND HANGED
CHANGLUNG: A Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) student was found dead in a hostel toilet in Sintok here yesterday.
The body of 25-year-old final year economics student, Wong Soo Sun, was found at the Bukit Kachi 2 hostel with a track top tied around her neck.
Her body was sent to the Jitra Hospital for a post-mortem before being released to her family.
Police have ruled out foul play."

They misspelt the name of the place. It's supposed to be CHANGLUN without a G at the end. Heard also that this girl is from Johore and most probably due to stress, commited suicide. What a tragic ending for someone who almost graduate.
This is so sad, man. It happened so near where I am. But luckily the hostel is off campus, mine is in campus. It shocked the bones out of me because yesterday was only the second day of lessons. I don't think the lecturers have started to teach. Therefore there is nothing to be stressed about yet.
Well, people still talk about this news today. Lecturers even discussed it in their lectures and it has nothing to do with the subject they are teaching.

My hubby's niece, a first year student in UPM also committed suicide by strangling from her wardrobe in her hostel in UPM. Sad that many mental depressed people went unnoticed until too late.

True. Very sad indeed. Heard my coursemates said the girl from UUM committed suicide due to bad results as written in the chinese newspaper.
