Nassau, Bahamas — Another young mother of two has committed suicide over night after long delays finding a job sunk her into deep depression, close friends tell BP.
We can confirm hard times had hit the unemployed mother hard and she was found early this morning in her bed at home with a white sheet around her neck.
Close relatives tell us the woman had been jobless for months and, along with her two young kids, had fallen on hard times. Reports also confirm there has been an uptick in the number of persons depending on the country’s social services, which is strapped for cash.
