Canadian Police are investigating the death of 16-year-old Dianna Manan, a Guyanese who was found on Queen Street, Brampton, Canada, on Sunday.

The teen’s parents are said to be Guyanese who hail from Canal, West Bank Demerara, and Berbice.

According to Canada’s CP 24 news, a passing motorist found the 16-year-old lying in the eastbound lanes of Queen Street, near Cherrycrest Drive in Brampton on January 5, 2020.

Manan was rushed to hospital but succumbed to her injuries.

INews understands that the teenager had left her grandmother’s home in Toronto on January 4 after being picked up by friends.

However, Canada’s CP 24 news reported that on Monday the teen’s mother said that she had no idea why her daughter was in Brampton.

Meanwhile, authorities said that they have since discovered that Manan had loose ties to Brampton and may had been at a house party on Saturday evening, prior to her death.
