Police are investigating a report that a 14-year-old student committed suicide by hanging himself on Sunday. 

According to reports, Zidane Malone, a Form 3 student of the Five Rivers Secondary School, was found in a bedroom by his mother around 1 am Sunday at his home in Bon Air Gardens, Arouca. 

His mother said she knew her son was sad, but did not know he was so depressed to the point to take his life.

Zidane's mother said that in a previous conversation, he had told her that he felt if he was not around, the family would be better off.

His mother is urging anyone who felt they had reached the stage of giving up, to consider talking to others and seeking other options.

Arouca police are continuing investigations.
