The community of Chisasibi is in mourning once again as one of its youth has committed suicide – in her own home.

According to Chisasibi’s acting Director of Policing, Eric Mistacheesick, the 17-year-old girl was found a few hours after the November 14th incident.

“Her mother informed us that she went down into her bedroom at around five o’clock and was only found at 8:50. It was estimated that she had been dead for at least two hours,” he said.

“I was shocked that it happened.”

The mother told Mistacheesick that her daughter, who cannot be identified because of her age, was drinking that night.
