Hailey Nailor, a 16-year-old girl in Connecticut, died on Saturday, February 9, after jumping off the parking garage at the Danbury Fair Mall. Some reports indicate that Nailor’s decision may have been influenced by bullying.
1. A Twitter user said that Nailor killed herself because of “bullying”.
“I’m in shock, this beautiful soul was lost today bc of bullying. The fact that anyone would coerce/want someone to commit suicide is beyond me. It’s inhumane & disgusting. R.I.P Hailey Nailor. You will get the justice you deserve. Bianca, you will get what’s coming for you,” a tweet from Twitter user @camrynnlucas read.
However, according to the Connecticut Post, police are currently investigating whether or not bullying played a role in Nailor’s death.
Additionally, the Post reports that Nailor’s family do not believe that she was bullied.
