you know what all you people need to leave this alone i used to play football with kevin and yeah he was a cool person and yeah he did do that out of problems (so i heard) (what i heard was that one of his parents had passed away from cancer and someone else who was a close family member had lost his employment and his girlfriend that had been his girlfriend since before he attended el monte high school had broken up with him) that day when he committed suicide i was no longer attending el monte high i was attending school at valley high school and that exact day that he committed suicide was my birth day and trust its hard to find out that one of your former team mate and friend committed suicide specially on your birthday well we all miss you kevin hopefully you resting in peace and all these people just let you rest in peace the way you deserve to

No one working at EMHS at the time remembers it, he's not in any of the yearbooks from the 80s, nor can you find a news story about him.

Dear fellow classmates of el Monte high school. When I attended High school in 1986. I can also recall a similiar incident. A boy named Angel Bentiz, he was a very popular student. Varsity football, attractive, letter man jacket and so on..Angel was a neighbor of mine. We both lived on Granada Ave. In El Monte. It's sad to say but Angel died for love. Angel was in love with a varsity cheerleader. She decided that her and Angel weren't right for each other. So she broke it off. DEVESTATED him. So one morning in November, Angel decides to hang himself in front of the autourium. Behind our mascot. They say that Angel's ghost haunts the main halls of the school. That his ghost is often seeing going up and down the stairs in the main hall. Mr. Gillete who was my history teacher, claims to have seen Angel's ghost in the hallway opening his old locker. The ESL student's, whom take their english courses at night, also claim to have seen Angel. I thought It would be interesting to share our story, that also claimed a very good person. So I'm assuming that Kevin's ghost will also be one who ligeries the halls of El Monte High School.

Just a sad fact of the American education system. That, and immigration where proper English is void for the most part. That's also the reason why such crazy stuff happens. Some people from other cultures can't keep up with American life. Poor kid. Gotta feel horrifically sorry though. I know what it's like to be depressed...

You people are so ignorant! You can't judge a whole population because of a couple people's actions. Not everyone in El Monte is uneducated or immigrants.
P.S. Can't keep up with the American life? Seriously?! Wow. Do you even know what the American life is all about? It isn't about putting other people down to try to make yourself look better. Before you speak go to college and educated your narrow mind.

kevin ho, was my cousin.. i know this was long time ago, but the reason that it wasnt on the news was because family members decided not to want it on the news, they didnt want to turn to ever single news chanel and see the heading "Kevin Ho suicide" its just hard, knowing that he was my cousin hurt me started crying..

Once again the one women army has taken up a civil rights cause.

Ms. Green has been protesting the Monstrous Building that was allowed to be built at the corner of Glendora Avenue and Route 66 this project and others in Glendora, California have raised eyebrows and hatred for the current and former city council members all the way back to 2003 when these plans were hatched and implemented behind the backs of it's voting residents,'trust us' were the buzz words used.

we can trust not one current or incumbents who is trying to win their seat back, vote them out and back to the city limits.

EMHS graduate from the early 80's. I was in a gang called, "The stupid idiots with stupid parents who could not get a job and let me be in a gang trying to be tough because I was too stupid to learn any job skills, so now I live off of other people or have been jailed so I can get free food and housing". They called me "Droopy". Sorry about the kid who committed suicide.

Is anybody still reading this? It's 2016 you know.
