A student of Kantale high school in Kabale was found dead, after he allegedly committed suicide.
Denis Mpamizo was found dead in his bed room last evening.
The Kabale police chief, Kadir Asiimwe, says Mpamizo left his school complaining of malaria but headed straight to his room.
Mpamizo's body was found with bruises, raising suspicion that he could have stabbed himself.
Asiimwe says that preliminary investigations show that Mpamizo had a history drug abuse and could not rule out the possibility that he was high on drugs when he killed himself.
Mpamizo's body has been taken for post mortem to establish the exact cause of death.
