Teenager commits suicide after failing college entrance exam

A teenager in Bohol province committed suicide after she was scammed and failed to pass a college entrance examination.

Camiel Ann Humol, 19, of Barangay Santo Tomas in Trinidad town, Bohol died of  a heart attack on Saturday, June 1,  days after she was hospitalized for cutting her wrists on apparent suicide.

According to her mother, Crispina, the teenager felt bad when she failed to pass the entrance examination at Trinidad Municipal College.

She said it was her daughter’s dream to become a teacher and was driven to  fulfill her dream of finishing her studies to lift their family out of poverty.

The mother also learned that Camiel was duped out of P50,000 cash.

Camiel’s grandmother Aurelia received a text message that she won P700,000. The texter claimed to be a lawyer who works from a government agency.

A certain Ramon Lopez told her that in order to claim the P700,000 she would have to pay P50,000 for the processing fee.

Camiel convinced her grandmother to borrow money from neighbors and relatives.

Aurelia even sold her cow and pawned her farm.

Camiel started paying money to a certain Ramon Lopez on April 17 until May 24. But she was only short of P1,600 from completing the P50,000 fee just days before her death.

Her family believed the teenager was distressed after she reportedly failed to pass the entrance exam at the Trinidad Municipal College and for fear for losing her family’s money and farm.

She was brought to Gov. Celestino Gallares Hospital in Tagbilaran. At the hospital, Camiel became hysterical until she suffered a heart attack.

Crispina blames the scammer for her daughter’s death.

The family will ask help from authorities to identify and locate the scammer.
