According to community residents, her parents were not home when she arrived from school. 

The cause of death is yet to be established. However, Liberians have taken to Facebook to call for an investigation.  One Wen Sailey circled a spot on the girl’s head which seem to indicate that that her head is bleeding. He wrote:


”Here are my questions.
1. Why her feet on the ground?
2. How many children are there in the house?
3. Where were the parents?
4. How strong is the cupboard to carry her weight?
5. How strong is the rope?
6. How long is the rope?
7. Why is her head bleeding?
Before my conclusion, we need autopsy for little Favor of St. Theresa Convent school.
