The 9-year-old Bronx girl who cops suspect strangled herself with a shower curtain in an apparent suicide has been identified as Justice Williams, police sources said Monday.

Justice’s mother made the horrific discovery at the family’s Wallace Ave. home in Morris Park around 9:30 p.m. Sunday, police said.

The girl was declared dead at Jacobi Hospital 12 minutes later.

Torres, 31, walked in and found her daughter motionless, with a white cloth around her neck hanging from the metal shower frame door, sources said.

The girl had recently gone to a therapist for help dealing with the birth of new half-sibling, sources said.

Torres and her new husband, Raymond Torres, had a baby about a year ago.

The girl told family members she “wanted to die” when the new baby was born — prompting her mother to get her professional help, according to sources.

This is beyond sad. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this young girl.
