The young boy jumped from an overpass on Interstate 66 in Fairfax County, Virginia
Wow, the boy survived?? how tragic, a 12 year old committing suicide... :(
“Harris family members told WRC she was a graduate student at Marymount University in Arlington, where she studied clinical counseling.”
The poor young lady. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
Look into the why of it and you’ll find a pervert. Very little doubt in my mind.
That’s the way I go when I drive to Washington...I-81 to I-66...
She looks like a sweet girl.

Could be many things that led the kid to attempt suicide, including severe bullying at school, lack of girls showing interest in him, etc. In any case, I tend to lose sympathy for people who choose to endanger other people's lives in the attempt.
either that or bullying most likely... how sad.
She’s standing in front of a poster she created for a talk on multiculturalism as it applies to refugees entering the US. Probably a SJW, but she didn’t deserve to die that way and maybe she would have smartened up as life went on. I was beyond an SJW when I was her age.
I'd wager you're spot on.
Twelve year old kids don’t usually commit suicide. Odds are somebody pushed him.
The womans boyfriend, and likely others, well may have seen the boy jump from the overpass. There seems to be little doubt from what Ive read.

Cruel? What on earth are you talking about? Based on my 59 years of living I’d say it’s damn near a lock some creep got to this kid.
“Odds are somebody pushed him.”
Perhaps sexually assaulted him. It is how homosexuals recruit new blood.
I thought you were referring to the kid being a pervert. My apologies.
...........LIFE in the pen. No possibility of parole.
