A 19 year old girl from Mannagoda in Elpitiya, had committed suicide by hanging herself on Wednesday afternoon.
Police believe that she had resorted to suicide over an incident where she had used the image of a different girl as her own profile picture on her Facebook page. The deceased is a nineteen-year-old Advanced Level student.
The police have confirmed that the girl had established a romantic relationship with a youth from Ja-Ela, whom she had met through the social networking site Facebook, about six months ago.
According to the police, the girl had committed suicide when the youth had arrived at her residence.
