An American teenager, who was on vacation in Bimini, has committed suicide.
According to police sources close to the investigations, 16-year-old Logan Daniel Herr was vacationing with his family at the Bimini Sands Hotel when he went missing on Saturday.
Hotel staff found the California teen early Sunday morning.
Police sources said they received a call from the hotel staff who informed them that the teen’s body was found at the rear of the hotel with a green strap around his neck and hanging from a tree.
When police arrived on the scene they found the boy’s body in one of the hotel’s gardens.
According to a statement sent by the Ministry of Tourism late Sunday, Minister of Tourism, Obie Wilchcombe, who is also the MP for the island, visited with the boy’s family and offered his condolences on behalf of his ministry.
The man who was found hanging in his hotel room in Sunyani has been identified by his family members following Thursday’s Daily Guide publication.
According to the station CID of Sunyani Municipal Police Command, Detective Inspector Jacob Atampuri, some family members of the deceased started calling him last Thursday following the publication and promised to come over to Sunyani to arrange for his burial.
He told Daily Guide that family members revealed to him that Henry Armah, the deceased had a psychiatric problem.
A family member told the police that he was in the house with the deceased in Accra in the morning of June 25, but he went missing until they saw him dead in the newspapers.
Henry Armah was found hanging with a rope around his neck and tied to a ceiling fan in his hotel room on June 26, when the hotel officials went out for their routine morning duties.
According to a senior official of the hotel, the deceased reported at the hotel around 4:30pm on June 25- the same day he left Accra- and asked one of the attendants to show him the rooms, of which he chose one.
When the hotel attendant asked him to go back to the reception to register, the deceased gave money and his name as Henry Armah to the attendant with an excuse that he wanted to use the wash room in the room he chose.
The hotel official added that after waiting for a while without the deceased coming out, the attendant, who received another client, left the deceased in his room. He was found hanging the next day naked.
