A 14-year-old Utley Middle School girl who attempted suicide at the end of September was recently bullied and made fun of by several other Utley students for attempting to take her life, as well as for failing to do so.

According to Christina Harrison, the mother of 14-year-old Bre Escobedo, who did commit suicide last May, when she reached out to the family to offer support that’s when she learned about the bullying problem.

She said after the girl was briefly hospitalized, she returned to school in early October and that’s when several students began harassing and making fun of her.

“I think what these students are doing is deplorable,”said Harrison. “I just don’t understand how kids can be so insensitive and downright cruel to other people at a time like this. What this young woman needs is support from her classmates, not bullying.”

“I can honestly say that since my daughter took her life, I have noticed that her friends seem to be closer and more supportive of one another than ever. I see and hear some of the things they say and still write on Bre’s Instagram account. But it’s so horrible that it takes a tragedy to wake people up,” she added.

“Our whole community needs to wake up and realize that we have a lot of kids who are hurting and we all need to help and support them. We absolutely do not want any more suicides or any bullying.”

Harrison said that the girl’s parents asked that their daughter not be identified.

Rockwall ISD is hosting a meeting Oct. 22, 7 pm, entitled “Fighting the Bullying Battle” for parents and students to learn about what works and what doesn’t in bullying prevention and intervention. The speaker is Patrick LeBlanc from Hickory Trail Hospital in DeSoto. The meeting is at the RISD Administration Building, Room 800, 1050 Williams St./Hwy 66, just east of the Downtown Square in Rockwall.
