Heartbreaking Loss in Indiana! 10-year-old Sammy Teusch’s Suicide Linked to “Bullying”

On Wednesday, hundreds of people came to mourn the death of a 10-year-old boy in Indiana who killed himself after what his parents said were months of constant bullying at school. WTHR-TV reports that Sammy Teusch, who was in the fourth grade, was found dead on May 5.

“I wrapped my arms around him.” “I did what no father should ever have to do,” Sam Teusch told the station. “It’s all I can see when I close my eyes.” Samuel’s family said that the bullying started with making fun of his glasses and teeth and went on until the night before he died.

The teasing got more and more violent over time. “The kids on the school bus beat him up and broke all of his glasses. I called the school and asked, ‘What are you doing about this?'” Teusch remembered and said that he had called the school more than twenty times.

The head of Greenfield-Central Schools, Dr. Harold Olin, told WTHR that Sammy’s family had never filed a report of bullying, even though school officials had “regular conversations” with his parents all year.

Olin wouldn’t give any more information. Though the community has shown support for the family since Sammy’s death, it hasn’t helped much. “I can’t say anything,” Teusch told the Greenfield Daily Reporter at Sammy’s wake.
