Perry High School Suicides

Students and parents at Perry Highschool say they want action after 3 students commit suicide since the beginning of the semester. The families of victims, including Kyliegh Crawford, who committed suicide in early November, said bullying is playing a large part in the tragedy.

They say they want the school to make tangible steps in preventing bullying.

Superintendent Scott Beatty sent a statement:

“The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority. Earlier this afternoon, a few community members demonstrated outside of the high school. This was not student-led. We understand the pain and sorrow our students, families and community members are facing over the recent loss of several Perry students. “

School officials said they were looking into starting new programs to combat the recent string student suicides.

Cleveland 19 News “Unwired” interviewed Internet Defamation Attorney Aaron Minc about the implications of the bullying through the internet.

If these teens used the internet to bully the victims, charges could possibly follow.

“The question is what and how severe the bullying is at the end of the day.” “At some point, if it gets extreme enough, you are going to get the police involved and people can be charged,” said Attorney Aaron Minc.


What can parents do to help prevent these tragedies?

“Try to stay open with what’s going on. Be cognisant. Really keep an eye on your kids. What you have to keep in mind though is that your kids aren’t always going to tell you. You think that they are but statistically, they really don’t because it’s that embarrassing and that harmful what they are trying to cover up. You have to be on the lookout and proactive about these things,” said Mr. Minc.

These days, bullying has moved from playgrounds and break-rooms to the Internet. To learn the best practices to curb cyberbullying, we recommend checking out our article, “What is Cyberbullying? How to Prevent Cyberbullying“.
