O.W. teacher, 28, commits suicide

Julian Chi, 28, a teacher of Orange Walk Town, was found hanging by an electrical cord tied around the neck in his house.

His wife and a neighbor took him down and he was taken to the Northern Regional Hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival. The tragic incident occurred about 11:15 last night at Chi’s house in Trial Farm Village.

Police say that they responded to reports and went to a house at the corner of Grunt and Saw Fish Streets, in the Black Creek area in Trial Farm Village, Orange Walk, and found the body of Chi lying face- up in the hall of his house.

Chi’s wife, also a teacher, told police that at about 11:00 last night, her husband went into his bedroom to sleep. When she went into the room a few minutes later, she found him hanging from an electrical cord, apparently dead. She managed to loosen the cord and called for assistance from her neighbor.

After Chi was pronounced dead at the Northern Regional Hospital, his body was brought to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital today, where a post-mortem was conducted. Doctor Mario Estradabran, who conducted the autopsy, certified the cause of Chi’s death as asphyxia due to hanging.

Police say they don’t suspect foul play.
