17-year-old Dacia Reynolds was found hanging from a tree in her yard in Runaway Bay, St Ann about 1:30 pm on Tuesday, Oct. 4th. Police say that the teen is suspected to have committed suicide.
“This shake up the entire district, everybody. She had an incredibly bubbly personality. She was passionate about life. Whenever she committed to doing something she always followed through,” said Pastor Delroy Johnson, who visited the family.
“She was enjoying church on Sunday; she was smiling. She was a very good girl; she never had a frown on her face,” another family member added.
Reynolds, a past student of Ferncourt High in the parish, had only been attending her new school of Cosmetology for two weeks. She reportedly stayed home on Tuesday because of the weather associated with Hurricane Matthew.
