A young man in Peru has died by suicide in what has been described as a shocking imitation of the controversial drama series 13 Reasons Why.
Franco Alonso Lazo Medrano, 23, took his own life after shouting “I can’t stand a heartbreak”, according to local news outlet Diario Clarín.
While he survived his initial injuries, he died shortly afterward in the nearby San Juan de Dios hospital, the report said.
Police reportedly found two suicide notes from Lazo Medrano one of which contained an explicit set of instructions to deliver a number of previously recorded cassettes, each labeled with a different name.
