“When I rushed to the lodge, I saw him on the floor clutching a kitchen knife. We immediately rushed him to the hospital and he was given immediate medical attention.  We later returned to his room where we discovered rat poison and bleach.


”As a matter of fact, we also saw syringes on the floor.


”We also saw a rope tied to his ceiling fan.
