A 10-year-old left a heartbreaking note before she hanged herself saying her death would make her mum “the happiest woman in the world.”
Cops in Mexico are probing the suicide of the child, named only as Evelyn Nicole N., which came on Three Kings Day – the Christmas-style festival celebrated by Spanish speakers on January 6.
A letter found by girl’s body shows she believed she was the reason behind her father leaving the family home.
They note read: “Dear Three Kings, I only want to ask you my mum will be the happiest woman in the world after I will not be here any more as I am only a pain and ruin her life since I was born, as I was the reason my dad left our house.”
The letter continued: “I want to ask my mum to be calm, not to work a lot, the best present I can ask is her happiness.
“I hope some day you remember me and in the sky, finally, you hug me.
“I think the best present for the Three Kings is if I kill myself.
“As you always said to me I wish you had never been born.
“I love you so much, mum, I know the Three Kings do not exist but I give you this great present.”
In countries including Spain and Mexico, the festival of the Three Kings is when families give each other presents.
Authorities in the central Mexican state of Aguascalientes said the cause of death was strangulation by hanging.
Emergency services received a call claiming a girl had killed herself at 10.18pm on Sunday.
Neighbours said the girl did not appear to be depressed or have any problems in the days leading up to her death.
The investigation is ongoing and local reports claim the police are looking to charge the mother.
