    Officials from Ragland Elementary School say the girl was a student there. They plan to have grief councilors on hand Friday for students.


    Neither the Ragland Police Department nor the St Clair County Sheriff's Office have made an official statement on the girl's death. Her name has not been released.

    WBRC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/JoxPCe) that the girl was found Thursday hanging from the rope, which neighbors said used to be part of old tire swing.

    St. Clair County Coroner Dennis Russell tells The Associated Press that authorities are treating the death as "a very suspicious" case.

    Russell identified the girl as Katelynn Arnold. She was found hanging from the rope shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday. He said that an autopsy was planned in Huntsville to help determine how she died.

    Such a tragedy! A little 8 year old girl. A rope from an old tire swing. I wonder how this could have happened.

    RIP Katelynn

    I do not believe that an 8 yr old would hang herself from a rope. It doesn't sound believable, imo. I hope they are truly investigating this tragedy/

    I too find an 8 yr old purposely hanging herself an unbelievable solution to this one. I was thinking perhaps an accident (climbing in tree and somehow becoming entangled in and then strangled by the rope from the tire swing) or perhaps foul play at the hand of another.

    Alabama boy charged in killing of girl found on rope

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
