Police in Detroit are investigating the possible suicide of a 7-year-old boy, who is believed to have killed himself because he was bullied. The child, whose identity has not been revealed, was found unconscious by his 14-year-old sister Wednesday (May 23) evening, prompting an adult family member to attempt to revive the boy.
Police rushed to the scene, revealing that the child had a belt around his neck, and apparently hanged himself from his bunk bed. The boy was rushed to a nearby hospital, and was later pronounced dead. According to a neighbor he was “cheerful,” “happy,” and “smart.”
