Have you read the horrific story about Gabrielle Molina, the twelve-year-old Queens girl who committed suicide after being consistently bullied by classmates?
The New York Post reports:
The tiny Queens girl who hanged herself Wednesday had been mercilessly taunted by classmates who called her names and mocked her appearance, friends and family said yesterday.
Gabrielle Molina’s body was discovered by her sister Georgia, 15, in their shared bedroom at their Queens Village house at 2:30 p.m.
The 12-year-old girl — who barely stood 5 feet tall — left an anguished suicide note that referenced her tormentors.
“She was bullied,” said IS 109 classmate Samantha Martin, 12. “She said that she wanted to move schools because she felt uncomfortable. People wanted to jump her.”
Gabrielle’s sobbing father, George Molina, said his daughter had been slowly wearing down from abuse that had continued online after the dismissal bell.
