In a report from Manila Bulletin, the female accountancy student died after falling from the 20th floor of the Brother Andrew Gonzales Hall.

Separate reports said that the girl of still undetermined identity and age either fell or was pushed off to her death at the staircase. Some also claimed that the girl committed suicide due to bad grades.

Citing reports from students who allegedly witnessed the incident, “there were people fighting then she took her shoes off before climbing the railing. Midway to the fall, she tried grabbing onto the railing. This caused her arm to get ripped off.”

On Tuesday, officers from the PNP Crime Laboratory have arrived and were stationed outside the Fidel Reyes entrance of Andrew Hall.

The LaSallian added: "Security officers and STRATCOM are unable to comment on the matter as of press time due to ongoing investigations."

October 30 UPDATE: Initial report of the authority said that "several small pieces of cut paper with written quotes regarding death were lodged in her personal diary."

In addition, the female student's relative said in an interview that he didn't notice anything strange in her behavior.
