WAKISO. Police in Entebbe are investigating circumstances surrounding the death of a 21 year old American national whose body was found hanging at Uganda Wildlife Education Centre in Entebbe municipality, Wakiso district.

Patrick Onyango, Deputy Police Spokesperson says the body of James Larkin Crow, a resident of Texas in the U.S.A was on Thursday morning found hanging from the staircase rail leading up to the entrance of the hostel building located at Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC).

“The body was found hanging with a belt around his neck outside the dormitory on step guards,” Onyango said.

Onyango who said that the body was since taken to Mulago city mortuary for a postmortem, added that a suicide case has been opened up at Entebbe Police Station vide CRB 1086/2018.

Close friends and relatives to the deceased told the detectives that he was depressed and was on medication which confirmed the school records that indicated the child had some anger issues related to his parents' divorce two years back.

This comes just months when another foreign national committed suicide in Muyenga, a posh Kampala suburb.

In February, a 54year old Eric Yvomr, a Belgian national hanged himself in his female friend’s house in Muyenga Vermigo apartments.
