15-year-old Cora Delille took her own life last week after allegedly being bullied at school for years.
But before she hanged herself in her family’s Ohio home, she wrote out a suicide note that named four people who made her life a living hell and told them all:
"Thanks for all the pain.”
Local police questioned the four classmates that Cora wrote about in her note, including two girls and two ex-boyfriends. Authorities have now said that they did NOT find any conduct worthy of prosecution, although they do believe she was bullied.
Commander Matt Delp of the Pickerington Police Department spoke about their findings after sitting down with her supposed tormenters and what was written in Cora’s note, saying:
"She was the victim of some name calling. While it's troublesome, it doesn't warrant bringing charges against the students. There were complex issues. She wrote about her home life and feeling unloved. Her mother and stepfather - the father she had known for 14 years - were getting a divorce. Her boyfriend had broken up with her the day before. There were many reasons.”
Friends of Cora also confirmed that she suffered from relentless bullying while at school.
But Cora herself kept much of her pain to herself. Her mother Amy Hall admitted she had no idea her daughter was going through this agony, saying:
"She mentioned here and there when kids made fun of her. She didn't clue me in to how bad it was.”
What makes this more devastating are reports that Cora continued to be bullied even after her death! A student source said that they overheard classmates discussing how happy they were to see Cora dead! Bullies have also allegedly been writing insulting words over pictures of Cora online!
How could anyone have that much hate in their heart?!?
We’re so sad to hear just how horrible Cora’s experience at school was. No kid should have to go to such a place everyday!
Don’t let Cora’s story go forgotten. If you are being bullied, get help! And if you are a bully yourself, realize that the person or people that you are hurting have feelings just like you.
Love > Hate.
Always. And if you're having thoughts, or know someone is, about suicide, don't hesitate to reach out:
