An Ohio sixth-grader reportedly took his own life after school bullies told him to commit suicide.
Aaron Fuller, 13, hanged himself with a belt in his bedroom Jan. 11 over what his family believes was a result of the bullying he experienced at Lake Middle School, the Toledo Blade reported.
His family returned from running errands to find him with a belt around his neck — but it was too late to save the teen, according to the newspaper. Aaron’s stepmother, Tami Fuller, who is a nurse, performed CPR on the boy to no avail.
Before his death, bullies picked on the teen’s clothing and told him on social media to kill himself, according to his family.
His parents reported the incident to the school, but officials told them they couldn’t do anything because Aaron also played a role in the exchange, the Blade reported.
“He was picked on and picked on and picked on, and Friday night was the last night he was going to be picked on,” Aaron’s uncle Joshua Tooley told the Sentinel-Tribune.
School officials confirmed police are investigating the case, according to the Saturday report from the Blade.
