The parents of a 13-year-old girl who committed suicide last year say her death could have been prevented, if the school had informed them of the reports she was being bullied.
On Tuesday, Jason and Jennifer Lambeth hit the Clark County, Nevada School District with a wrongful death lawsuit for the loss of their daughter, Thurman White Middle School seventh-grader Hailee Lambeth.
On December 12, Just a few hours after excitedly texting her parents about being named student of the month in her math class, Hailee was found dead in their Henderson home from a self-inflicted gun shot wound.
Her 6-year-old brother Jacob made the gruesome discovery. Apparently referencing Hailee’s recently-diagnosed epilepsy, bullies even allegedly left a voicemail on her cellphone the September before her death, saying: ‘Where are you Hailee? I hope you died.’
