A Dallas family is currently mourning the life of their 11-year-old son.
According to Dailymail, Julio Rodriguez, 11, was found inside the closet of his mother’s home last week. The mother, Maya Rodriguez, was checking on her (6) kids before they went to bed when she made the horrible discovery.
“The door was locked. It’s never locked, I opened the door immediately and I saw Junior hanging up in the closet,” she told WFAA.
The mother claims that her son had been troubled for months leading up to his death, she believes it was from being bullied at school.
“Prior to his death, he was hitting the table, hitting the wall, walking back and forth. He had moments where he was very aggressive.”
The boy’s extended family members believed their beloved ‘Junior’ was being pressured by bullies to sell drugs, according to the network.
