North Carolina Girl, 10, Committed Suicide

CHADBOURN, N.C. — Two days after we reported on a 10-year-old girl in Illinois hanging herself in her bedroom because of bullying, we are now reporting on a 10-year-old girl in North Carolina who hanged herself as well.

The mother of 10-year-old Jasmine McClain found her dead in her bedroom Monday night where she had hanged herself from a metal rack. Chadbourn Police Chief Steven Shaw said it was an obvious suicide and was about to close the case when he started reading posts on Facebook about Jasmine.

“Children started coming forward and making accusations that she was bullied in school,” Shaw said. Immediately, news reports were stating that the little girl had killed herself because of bullying. However, after checking into these comments, police say they have not found any solid evidence that this was the case.

“People are struggling to make it a bullying story,” Shaw said. “We haven’t made it that, yet. What we’ve found is the people who have posted the comments are telling us that this is what a friend said. We haven’t found any evidence of bullying yet. That doesn’t mean we won’t, but it doesn’t look like it’s heading that way.”

School officials are echoing the same findings. They conducted their own investigation and have been unable to find anyone who directly witnessed Jasmine being bullied.

Jasmine’s mother, Samantha West, said she wasn’t aware of Jasmine being bullied. She told reporters that since her death other parents have told her Jasmine was picked on by other children at Chadbourne Elementary School about her clothes. West said that whatever the reason, she wishes her daughter would have talked with her.

That’s the thing that sticks out the most for me in these cases. The fact that kids like Jasmine either didn’t have anyone to turn to, or anyone they felt they could turn to, and are in such despair they resort to something so drastic and so final. It’s crazy.
