Kevin Reese Jr.’s mother, Crystal Smith, said her fifth-grader was a “Goofy child” that dealt with merciless torment from bullies at Robinson Elementary School, KTRK reported.
“They told me they never found any bullying going on,” Smith added.
Then one day in January, little Kevin suffered all he could take.
On Jan. 21, Kevin and his 13-year-old sister got off the school bus and went home.
At the time, Kevin’s mom was out of town for work and his stepdad was on his way home from work.
Before his stepdad could get home, Kevin was found hanging in his closet.
“She was just screaming on the phone, and I didn’t understand and she screamed, ‘Kevin,'” Crystal said about the frantic phone call she received from Kevin’s sister.
Eventually, Crystal understood that her son took his own life.
Crystal said she contacted Kevin’s school after his suicide and they reiterated that they’ve found no evidence of bullying.
“Pay attention to your child, don’t assume that things are handled at the school, stay on top of it until you see something come out on the end,” Crystal told KTRK..
