Police in Kasese municipality is investigating circumstances under which a 23-year-old man committed suicide by hanging inside a family house. 

The deceased has been identified as Felix Muhindo a resident of Nyamwamba west cell, Nyakasanga ward Nyamwamba Division Kasese municipality. Paddy Kamara chairman LC1 for Nyamwamba west said the deceased was last seen on Thursday morning while in good health.

However, the family became suspicious in the afternoon after he failed to respond to their calls prompting them to break into his room where he was found hanging. Kamara suspects the deceased could have committed suicide due to frustration from unending family wrangles. 

The OC Kizungu police station James Ongaja says police have recorded some statements from family members and will continue with investigations to establish circumstances that led to Muhindo's ending his life. 

In Kasese, suicide especially among young adults has been on the increase, with this latest incident the third in a space of two weeks
