DAGUPAN CITY - A 12-year-old girl committed suicide on Sunday reportedly over a boy, investigators said.

Naomih Lee Caromongan, a grade 6 student, was found by her half-brother hanging inside their house in Barangay Mamalingling at 4:30pm.

A mosquito net tied to the ceiling was looped around her neck.

The victim was apparently experiencing depression, according to entries in a notebook found inside their house.

The notebook showed that she was having feelings for a boy who already had a girlfriend.

Experts advice parents to watch out for signs of depression in children and to try to talk to them to find out if they are having problems.
