Police in Tonga have claimed that a 19 year old man was driven to suicide by his girlfriend on Monday, September 30.
A post mortem examination has been completed on the body of the teenager who died as a result of drinking an unknown poisonous substance, Haʻapai Chief Police Inspector ‘Okusitino Peleki told local media.
The unnamed victim, from Tongoleleka, Ha’apai, one of the island groups of Tonga committed suicide after he exchanged text messages with his girlfriend.
Police revealed what they said had driven the suicide after seizing and going through the text messages.
The incident happened following the death of the 22 year old Siosaia ‘Atu ‘Ala of Ta’anea, Vava’u after he was found hanged to a branch of a tree in Matamaka, just outside a church building on September 2.
Police believed a repeated turn down by a girl ‘Ala was madly in love with had driven his death.
