The legs were stiffened suggesting that she died of strangulation. The left hand had a cap for the doom bottle and the bed was wet and the space found wet was too much to tally with the amount of liquid poured from the doom bottle. There was also a printed note found on the bed purported to have been authored by the deceased citing that, she committed suicide and wished her children well but the grammar could not match with a lecturer status and besides, the upper part of the A4 where the information was, was cut off.”
