In the Philippines, a 17-year-old out-of-school youth named Jay-c Leano killed himself by drinking a silver metal polisher. The young man, a resident of Tondo, Manila, was declared dead on arrival at the Mary Johnston Hospital.
His parents told police their son had become depressed after a cousin accused him of stealing the latter’s cellphone.
He was found lying on the ground at around 10:30 pm last April 1. An empty bottle of Janash Silver Cleaner was found near his body.
