The 10-year-old explained to a female RUSA member that she was injured while playing with her twin brother and older sibling. When her father allegedly attacked her and advised her to commit suicide, she began crying and vomiting.

Before entering her bedroom, the girl penned a suicide note warning her family not to enter because she meant to end her life. She then tied up two scarves. She fastened one end to her neck before climbing atop a shelf,” RUSA explained.

“The kid was attempting to attach the other end of the scarf to a wall-mounted extension cable when her 13-year-old sibling entered the room and prevented her from jumping from the cabinet. According to RUSA, he allegedly tore the suicide note (shown).
