She claimed they awoke this morning to find out the man had committed suicide.
”We awoke this morning to see people rushing to the scene of the accident. We saw him dangling from a sponge. A silver bowl with what appeared to be herbs was placed beside him. His slippers were also found on the scene. We don’t know who he was or where he lived, but some said he was a mason who worked in the area.”
