NAGA CITY -- A 21-year-old student hanged himself at a tree along an irrigation canal at Zone 3, Bgy. Loob in Gainza, C. Sur at about 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

The suicide victim was identified as Joven Sabado Torente, 21, a 4th year Mechanical Engineering student of the Bicol State College of Applied Sciences (BISCAS) here.

Local residents reportedly found Torente dead with a rope looped around his neck.  Police investigators have yet to determine why the student committed suicide.
