Two Colorado Students Commit Suicide After Being Bullied
Two Fort Collins, CO students took their own lives.
The family of 11-year-old Ariana Cordova said the bullying began many years earlier.
“She started being bullied when she was in second grade,” Cordova’s older sister, Isabella, told Fox 31. “It wasn’t until she came home with a broken arm that we had to figure out what happened.”
Cordova had shown signs of depression in the past and was placed in counseling at some point, though she reportedly showed no signs of suicidal tendencies prior to her death.
“There are people on her bus that said she was counting down days but she never let any of us know. She acted like everything was fine,” Isabella said.
Cordova is the second Fort Collins middle school student to take their own life. An 11-year-old student from a different school than Cordova took his life over a weekend break. His family requested that his identity be kept private.
