I have been hearing in the community lots of things about a young boy commiting suicide in el monte high school by hanging himself at schools baseball diamond. I am very surprised not to hear anything on the news about it yet. Does anybody have any more info on the incident?

They did talk about it but in the Spanish station news yeah its true.He was a 16 year old male he was my daughters friend I got to know him and he was a great kid very nice boy.I dont understand why the news have not mention this I guess it might not be important to them to mention it its sad that you hear about stupid things in the news that they consider news but when something like this happens they dont bother to talk about it.That way kids could now what is going on out there and hopefully they would not think about doing something like that thems selfs.

i go to anpther school in the same district and they were saying that one of the reasons why he might have done it is because his gf had broken up wit him about a week ago, but i dont think that could be the only reason why he did it

I hope not because I dont think any reason is good enough for somebody to take their life away.

From what I heard is that people saw him climbing the fence and no one did or said anything I wish some one like you would had passed by to see what he was doing and maybe this could had being prevented.I'm just suprised that people dont care or just to damn afraid to say something, if they saw that he was going up there I mean wont you ask hey what are you doing or something.

For what I heard from a friend that know Kevin was that he just did'nt kill himself just because his girlfriend broke up with him it was also because his father recently just had died and his mother is sick and he had family problems.I just wish he did'nt kill himself he should of just find help from a friend or someone else.He was quite a nice boy and I hope he rests in pease.

He was one of my sister's best friend and an all round nice kid who loved to help others. It's ironic, how he would help anyone even a stranger, but never asked for help himself. It has been rumored that the P.E. teachers saw what was going on and ran the other way!!! If this is true then they'll have to live with it for the rest of their lives.

The news media should really use this as an opportunity to educate people especially teens about depression and how to cope with it as well as how to cope with stress. Teens need to know that there is help out there and how to ask for it. Yes this was a tragic event and really didn't have to end this way, but instead of seeing it has a tragedy we should turn it into a positive by educating people about depression so that thousands of other lives can be saved. I choose to see Kevin as a fallen soldier who gave up his life to save many others. Maybe this was his purpose in life...to give unselfishly and unconditionally.

If the thing about the P.E teacher seeing this and not doing anything its true somethig needs to be done how can you just turn your back and not help.

This is all rumors stop making up stupid rumors. i go to that school. and it doesn't matter if its not in the news. our school does not like to talk about it. his father did not die. his mother was not sick. thats pure bull. and it was not because of his ex girlfriend. the reason they do not show it on television is b/c they do not want teens copying him. enough said.

you act like his the only teen in the world's history to commit suicide by hanging himself! I'm not saying that the school should talk about it too the media. What I'm trying to say is that this is something that needs to be taken seriously because thousands of teens commit suicide each year. To put an end to this inclining number we must educate people about how to prevent it. That way people won't "copy" him. I'm not saying lets make a mockery of this incident, but we need to do something more than say "oh, how sad". Nobody will ever know the reason why he did what he did, but we know that it was preventable. I'm talking about educating people so please don't take it the wrong way!!!

What Kevin Ho did was a selfish act. don't get me wrong he was a great guy, a Track buddy of mine. I say his act was selfish because he didn't stop to think for a moment, about us,(his fellow school mates) it was terrifing to see him hanging from that fence... something I don't want to see for a long time. In school they talked to us about suicide and how to prevent it... but they never really show us the correct way to grieve. to take this and put it all aside. its very difficult now days to pass by and know that barely almost a week ago we talked to him and in the afternoon saw him hanging from that rope... Yes, a terrifing story sad too, but all I hope is that he's resting in peace. coz, it was wrong for him to take his life that way.. and Kevin.. we miss you and wait for us.... my next race will be for you!

Hey, I am just a friend and a 15 year old who still see Kevin hanging from that rope...

i know kevin ho better than anyone on this board. kevin ho did not take this action to hurt anyone. if you were one that chose to step on the water fountain to view him hanging from the baseball diamond, then that is your own fault. i hope that peace will come soon. kevin's father did NOT die. i'm not sure about his mother's health. his ex-girlfriend is NOT the reason of this action. don't spread rumors.

Oh, my. Don't students in El Monte SPELL? How are you going to pass your exams, go on to college or apply for jobs??? I'm sorry to be critical, I'm concerned. Someone there -- your parents, teachers, etc., have to insist on some standards for the sake of your futures.
All I have are good memories of that sweet town in the 1940s and 1950s, when we'd visit our grandparents. Even though it was definitely a working-class town, not even a hint of tragedy or crime among teenagers....
