    Henry County child found dead in possible suicide

    So sad--8 years old!

    "An eight-year-old Henry County girl was found hanging Friday night in what authorities believe could be a suicide."

    I don't understand how an eight-year old even knows what suicide is, much less wants to do it.

    They (children) know when they are in a hopeless situation. They will find a way out. JMO

    We can't understand why my seven year old understands suicide and wants to kill himself.

    Mental illness can strike anyone, regardless of age.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    I'm not buying it. She was hanging in a closet. She would have to climb on something to reach the closet rod then tie a knot strong enough to hold. There should have been lots of banging around when she started to struggle for air. She s just 8. How soon did they start looking for her? How long had she been dead ?

    I wonder who else was around when it happened .

    Wonder if she was playing, acting something out. I've heard stories of kids emulating the Roadrunner (and I'm sure a lot of more violent ones today) who have hung themselves trying to "jump off a cliff", etc.

    Rick Warren's son first attempted very young, and more than once. Lifelong battles with mental illness can start very young
