Anti Gay Bullying Claims Life in Iowa
Gay Teen Bullied to death.
A 14-year old gay teen died by suicide Saturday in Primghar, Iowa, after coming out as gay and being bullied for months, according to a report.
There are no other news reports yet, but there is a Facebook group created in his memory.
One entry notes, “Its sad to see how people cannot just see past a
persons identity and just see them as a human,” while another reads,
“You took his happiness away from him..,” and another, “No one deserves
to be bullied! My sympathies to the family and friends of Kenneth! And
to the kids that bullied him hope you sleep okay knowing that you drove a
young man to an early fate, you should be ashamed of yourself!”
A Facebook page
which appears to be that of the same Kenneth James Weishuhn lists his
nickname as Rodney. The last entry was March 30.
The death is currently under investigation by the O’Brien County Sherriffs Dept. along with local law enforcement.
A tribute video was published to YouTube yesterday.
