A Kenyan woman was reportedly found dead in her house after her one-year-old baby's endless cries alerted neighbours that something might have gone wrong.

According to Daily Nation, the body of Jackline Ngugi, 28, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in her room, in a case of suspected suicide.

The report said that police investigations were under way.

Ngugi had been living alone for the past three years in her house at Fisheries in Kisauni Sub County in Mombasa.

Nairobi News said that a suicide note left by Ngugi raised questions.

"God forgive me. This was not my will neither my wish. Fight for my blood God. Watch over my son. I have taken my life. Mum forgive me, I did not want any of this to happen to me. Take care of my son. God be the judge and fight for my innocent blood. If they drove me to this be the judge," read the note.

A neighbour said they were in "total shock" as Ngugi was "a happy lady" during her three-year stay at the apartment.
