I too think updates are important. I know it's not the Patch's fault. But without any information, we are left to guess what happened. I believe that since the police are investigating, she didn't die of an illness. So that leaves, drugs, murder or suicide. They didn't report on any arrests or to be on the look out for a killer. So I have sort of narrowed it down in my mind. I would like to know if there is a concern out there for parents, but I assume no because no warning from police.

Its sad, and my heart goes out, but some of the foolishness that takes place is out of control. God Bless you to the mom and brother.

What updates are you looking for? All the details of how she committed suicide? That is none of your buisiness. She is not with us anymore. The updates you should be looking for do not come from Patch. Call the school. They will tell you what you need to know. OR if you know the family, reach out to them. You all are just nosy and yes, "Jim", sometimes- SOME topics - need our attention, but clearly how she killed herself is what you want to know. I am certain the school would call you if your child were in danger. That said, the school needs to reach out to students and parents abotu how it is combatting bullying. Sometimes this is the reason, and sometimes it is for other reasons, maybe mantal health reasons or family issues that, again are not your business. Life is not a soap opera. Let this family grieve. If you have an issue with the school, how about going directly to the district or school and not posting on Patch for details. Seems to me that you just want to cause the family more pain. Some things are private.
