    Eight-Year-Old Girl Hangs Herself

    Eight-Year-Old Girl HANGS Herself

    The body of little Tori Blair Wilson was discovered just 80 yards from her house near Palestine, East Texas, after she went missing from a neighborhood barbecue.

    Following a weeks-long investigation, an autopsy has now revealed the second-grader died from suicide by hanging.

    It also found the pretty eight-year-old had talked about suicide in the past, once even putting her head in a noose in front of one of her friends.
    Absolutely heartbreaking. During a news report earlier the local sheriff said that he didn't see a need to investigate any evidence on the girl's body because "our lab doesn't have a lot of free time".

    That is awful, but I fail to see how an examination of an 8 year old girl would take all that long.

    I'm hearing about kids who are depressed/suicidal being younger and younger. This is sad, but not completely unique.

    No idea. Palestine is a small town in a small county...maybe that has something to do with it.

    Any theories on way depression is presenting itself in such young children?

    That might be it. But I would have though in a larger county it would be more problematic because they would have more cases that they have to handle.

    Re: Eight-Year-Old Girl Hangs Herself

    In 38 years of teaching, only two students ever said that they were contemplating suicide. I took both of them seriously, and neither followed through on it. It is rare, but kids do kill themselves from time to time, and for much the same reasons that adults do. If a kid says he's thinking about suicide, unless it is a "I'll hold my breath until I get my way" sort of thing, it's quite likely that he is doing just that, and could follow through with it unless an adult intervenes.

    I can't speak for the area in the article, but near me, I see a couple of reasons:

    1) Competition to succeed is VERY high. This is mostly projected from the parents onto the kids. Even at that age, I've see parents give punishments if a kid doesn't get an "A".
    2) Kids today are WAY overschedules. Soccer on Monday. Karate on Tuesdsay. Tutoring on Wednesday. Dance/Art/Voice/Music on Thursday. CCD/Hebrew School on Friday. Weekends for games for the sports they are involved in. Kids have zero free time just to be kids and are expected to attend all of these things. I read an article, a while back on this. Do you know what percentage of kids stick with activities that they start before the age of 12? 10%. Think about that.
    3) Too much structured time with parents, too little "hang out"/emotional time with parents. Everything is about performance, not about who the kid is.

    These are the major factors that I see.

    I can't even fathom a lifestyle like that for my kids....when I have them. That's scary.
