A FAMILY in Nibong Tebal was devastated when their 37-year-old daughter hanged herself with her shawl at their home, Makkal Osai reported.
The woman, who worked at a factory in Seberang Perai, was on leave on Monday, and was at home, doing household chores.
After making breakfast for her father, she went into her room and did not come out for a long time.
Her family checked in on her later in the day and was stunned to see her hanging in the room.
The woman, who is the third child in the family, had shown no signs of being in distress.
She was her usual self in the days leading up to the death, the family said.
However, following her death, an unidentified family member said the family discovered some documents showing she might have had some debt issues.
Those in need of help can contact the Befrienders service nearest to them.
