My husband is one of the fire fighters that tried to revive her! This poor beautiful child was suffering from being bullied!! When someone feels the need to hang themselves will never be understood but you can stop all of this now!!! Please think before you hurt someone intentionally!! They need to get to the bottom of it and press charges against the students who did this!! Make an example and show CMS that is is not tolerated. After the attempt to rescue the young girl she eventually was put on life support and blessed three others with life. Lets make a new law..... antibulling!! Jocelyn's law!!

That would be a great law! They would need to get rid of facebook and twitter and all of those other ridiculous things kids get on today. Kids seem to be more viscious when they don't have to talk to someone's face. I'm sure bullying has been around for years, but it has tripled since these kids have cell phones and internet access. Facebook, twitter, an cell phones seem to be the work of the Devil!

I saw an obituary yesterday for Katie Wingate of Mooresville, also 17. No mention if it was a suicide. I have no idea if the girls knew each other or even knew of each other, but I am not sure a media blackout and total silence is the best response to teenage suicide. I understand the risk of a "contagion" and imitation, but kids find out and are influenced, and media silence keeps the parents uninformed. I also respect the families' need for privacy, but I am troubled by the absolute silence while our children are killing themselves.

There ws a 12 year old that hung himself over bullying in Bluefield WV. Something has got to be done, it is scary that kids can be so cruel. I think people that bully should be charged with involuntary manslaughter,if the person they are bullying kills themself. If they would start taking action..just MAYBE it would get someone attention. Parents talk to kids about doing it and what to do if it is done to them. I have 2 grandchildren and it scares me to death to think about them going to school!!!!

My heart aches for this family. May they find comfort in their faith. I am from Princeton, WV and our community has just this week lost an eleven year-old boy. The police are investigating but rumor is he was being relentlessly bullied by some kids at school.He also hung himself. I pray school officials and parents can come together to try and find a solution, without each blaming the other.God bless the Desmond family.

I listened to her sing and she was so nice to everyone she met. I've been in shock since I heard, because I can't imagine who would bully her.

She hung her self after being bullied by a group of students from another school and another state. She couldnt take it anymore and needed to put the pain at ease. She was a great girl from what i here. but at this point the bulling needs to stop! We need to put an end ti this and make a change. She hung her self because of a girl that bulling her! The gurl was smart, beautiful and loved and bulling is what toook her life!!
It makes one wonder about the "BULLIES". They bully WHY, they are not as pretty, not as intelligent, not as talented ect ect. The gates of HELL would not hold me back from those that were responsible for this childs death, IF it were my child. Those HOODLUMS need prosecuted to the fullest extent, they the same as MURDERED that young lady.

<quoted text>Sorry u have lost a friend, and she was so disturbed by others that she has lost her future. I had never met her but work in the medical field where her father works/lives. I for some reason cant get this girl out of my heart and off my mind.
. I too was a very close friend and classmate of jocylen. We also attended weekly youth group together and went on mission trips together to serve god and to help out the comunity. I can only imagine the how much fun she is having in heaven with Jesus right now! It sadens me to think that kids around the world get bullied to the point of not wanting to live any more. Life is a beautiful experience that we should all enjoy together and some people want to make that hard to do. To my understanding, the bullying was started by a bad break up with her boyfriend and it manifested from there. I all know the x boyfriend and I don't believe we should bash and acuse him or anyone else. It does not matter who's falt it was and I know he is very sorry and sad about what he did. He has to live with the guilt as well. He has learned his lesson. We must look past this and target bullying in the action. If you ever see or here bullying in or out of school then do something about it, stand up for the victim, tell someone, stand up against the bully. We can't let these type of thing slide any longer.

Hi. A lot of people have written in this with "facts" that they "know". Well your facts are completely wrong and you have no idea what you are talking about. She was not bullied by people from a different state, she was bullied by her ex boyfriend and his cruel friends. You can say we shouldn't blame or accuse him, but the truth is, it is pretty much his fault... You don't know the kinds of things he said to her. They were evil. And we lost a beautiful young girl at his hand. I know it was Jocelyn's choice to kill herself, but it was the boyfriend's choice to bully, when he knew she had emotional issues.
