Mom of Ohio boy who killed himself vows he ‘will be heard’
The mother of an 8-year-old Ohio boy who killed himself after she says he was bullied at school pledges to speak out on his behalf.
Cornelia Reynolds said in a Friday statement that her son Gabriel Taye’s voice “will be heard” and she urges parents to tell their children to seek help if they are being hurt.
“It is my obligation to make sure that this will never happen again,” she said.
“No, this will not go away. People need to know the truth and help fix this epidemic in our society by spreading awareness and speaking up.”
The Cincinnati school district says the boy told staff he had fainted and never said he had been bullied or assaulted.
