Sadly, a middle schooler hung herself inside a high school in California, reports the New York Post. Police say the shocking incident occurred a mere hour after the 14-year-old ran away from home. 

The unidentified teen’s body was discovered by officials on the second floor of Lindhurst High School after she went missing from her home around 6 a.m., officials say. Wendell Anderson, Yuba County Sheriff, informed journalists,

“It does appear to be a suicide…It’s an active, ongoing investigation.”

Cops believe that students on campus witnessed the body and they’re looking for these students to give statements and aid in the case. 

The sheriff went on to say,

“I know I can speak for our entire department when I say we are incredibly heartbroken from this tragedy… This will undoubtedly impact our community and I urge anyone suffering with suicidal thoughts to seek help immediately.” 

The school remains closed on Friday and Fal Asrani, superintendent of the Marysville Joint Unified School District, made a statement that said,

“Today is traumatic for the whole community of Lindhurst and the entire Yuba County.”
