Reports are that Azael Gomez had been socializing with other friends on Saturday night and was under the influence of alcohol when he went to use the bathroom of the Guinea Grass R. C. Primary School. Information coming to Plus News is that the body was found in a sitting position with his pants down.
Though it has not been made official, it appears that police are not suspecting foul play, however, Gomez was found with a bruise to his temple, which could indicate that Gomez fell and hit his head, resulting in his death.
A post-mortem is due shortly. The school cancelled classes for the rest of the day after the body was discovered today. However, classes are scheduled to resume as per usual tomorrow.
