I remember it all too well

When I lived in NoVA and was still a rookie EMT dispatched to a house on Thanksgiving Day back in 1994. 10 yr old Boy had committed suicide very similar matter to itself. Sad story to make it worse. The child had been removed from his parents due to neglect and abuse and was living with his grandparents only to find out he'd been abused by the grandfather so the child felt they had no way out. Suicide among pre-teens are almost exclusively the result of abuse of the suicidal person normally, usually family related but not impossible that school abuse could have been a factor as well..
