The story of Donny John Dion.

11-year-old pupil found hanged
28 March, 2007
Papar: A broken home and life in poverty proved too much to bear for an 11-year-old boy here last week. He hanged himself.

District Police Chief, DSP Charles Labung Lawai, said Donny John Dion, a SK Kinarut pupil, was found hanged, by his mother from the ceiling of their Kg Suangon home in Kinarut on March 20.

He said from what police gathered, the boy, who had five siblings, had previously attempted suicide but failed. "We believe he was disillusioned with the poverty gripping his family and his father is presently in prison for a drug offence," he pointed out.

He said the 37-year-old mother was away at a neighbour's house when the boy, who was alone at home, hanged himself.

Charles said she (mother) found the body after returning about 2pm and immediately rushed her son to a clinic in Kinarut but by then the boy had already died. He said the police did not find any sign to suggest foul play, adding a post-mortem was conducted at the district hospital.
