RIP! A boy of 9 Hanged himself over bullying


A TORMENTED boy of nine hanged himself at home after “relentless bullying” at school, his family claimed yesterday.
Cops are investigating why Aaron Dugmore killed himself in what appears to be Britain’s second youngest suicide caused by bullying.

He was found unconscious at home by distraught mum Kelly, 30, and died 24 hours later in hospital on Tuesday. He recently joined 450-pupil Erdington Hall primary in Birmingham, which said he “settled in quickly”.

But emotional Facebook tributes spoke of bullying.
Cousin Jack Jones wrote: “RIP Aaron. You can rest now with nobody to hurt you.” Kelly posted the last photos of her boy online and wrote: “It’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Xxxx”
A neighbour said: “Aaron had been targeted by a gang of older bullies at school as he was the new kid but no one thought it was any more than playground stuff.”
