    I think this is the 4th suicide of a Monrovia High School student in the last 18 months. It is a problem that the school system should address.

    How dare you post this article and put the blame on the boyfriend?! Shame on you! You’re putting the boyfriend on blast on the media? If you have no proof or anything you shouldn’t say nothing! Have some respect!

    I agree 110% with Sasha. Why would you put a 16 year old on blast like that when there is absolutely no proof yet? That boy must be feeling so guilty already and putting it out there already is not okay.

    It’s a very sad thing for everyone involved. My condolences to her family and friends. The article states that the girl was “thought to have been despondent over problems in a personal relationship”, but it is not specific on details. We all have personal relationships with friends or family members or yes, even love interests. This article didn’t specify who the personal relationship involved. Sasha and Leila seem to know more than we do and have put it out there that it is about a boyfriend and that he’s 16 years old. Wow! Ladies, think before you speak.

    Who said anything about a “boyfriend”? Do you teenagers know what a personal relationship means? It has to do with ANYONE personal in her life. Shame on YOU for putting her boyfriend “on blast.” and who posted anything pointing fingers? Hmm. I also agree with Tracey… Teen suicide should be addressed.
