A 21 year old girl identified as a USIU student has been found dead in her apartment at Mirema Drive, in Roysambu.
The lifeless body of the girl, identified as Priscilla, was discovered by the caretaker on Wednesday evening. He was worried that she had not left her apartment for nearly 24 hours, which was unlike her.
According to a source who spoke to reporters, Priscilla had hosted a bash at her place on Monday night, which went well into the morning. this is often a reasonably common thing in apartments hosting majorly college students.
Her guests apparently stayed until the subsequent day, just before the evening curfew. But when Priscilla went another 24 hours without leaving the house, the caretaker got curious.
He found an unlocked door, with the girl’s lifeless body lying on the front room floor. Police were alerted immediately.
Among items found within the room were bottles of codeine – a prescription often abused, also weed blunts.
The police have launched a proper investigation, with initial suspicion being that she overdosed. consistent with residents, codeine usage has become rampant within the area especially among college students.
“Codeine is being sold call at the open like water, we lost another one just the other day,” one resident revealed.
The caretaker and other neighbours are being questioned.
