WITF reports:

Four teens ranging in age from 13 to 16 have killed themselves in a
one week span in Luzerne County.

A 15-year-old Pittston Area School
District sophomore killed herself Monday night. Hours later a
13-year-old from Hazleton was found dead.

A second Pittston student, 16, killed himself on Friday and a Greater Nanticoke Area eighth-grader killed himself Sept. 18.

Authorities say the suicides don’t appear to be related to bullying despite hearsay claims to the contrary from students.

What is it that reduced the self-esteem of these children so much? So tragically? No Bullying?
