Close relatives and friends of 26-year-old Moses 'Pablo' Richards were left shaken yesterday evening after they discovered his body covered by ants hanging from his kitchen ceiling.

Richards, from Love Lane in Kingston, is suspected to have committed suicide.

The police say Richards also goes by the name Omarion Richards.

THE STAR understands that the death of Richards came as a shock to his family and friends as our news team was informed that he recently got a job.

Meanwhile, rumours have been circulating that Richards may have taken his life because he was some $500,000 in debt and was experiencing relationship problems.

Richards, who reportedly left behind a note, was said to be a former member of the Fletchers Land Police Youth Club.

"I hope one day you will forgive me. Please tell ... that I love her more than life. I tried so many times to change my ways, but I couldn't, so this is my ... Mom, I love you so much, please forgive me ... I'm sorry," read a section of the note that Richards left with a mobile number for persons to call.

When our news team arrived at the scene, a number of persons had gathered to try to get a glimpse of what had happened. Richards' body was still hanging over a pool of blood with the ants crawling on it.

Reports are that sometime after 4 p.m., several primary-school students stumbled upon the body hanging from a piece of electrical cord and made an alarm.

"Mi can't believe a gyal Pablo kill himself over, no girl or no money can mek me do that," a resident said.

The Kingston Central police are investigating the incident.
