Teen Takes His Own Life; Parents Say He Was Bullied Video #####IMG000000001#####
BRYANT, Ark.A Bryant family says bullying lead their son to take his own life.
13-year-old Evan Malone was an 8th grade student at Bethel Middle School in Bryant.
His parents say he was bullied at school and killed himself last month. On Monday, people in the community held a block party to celebrate Evan.
His family says dealing with their son’s loss has been unbearable and they want others to speak out against bullying.
“Very painful part of us is missing. Part of us is gone and we will never get it back,” Hayley Malone said.
“We had no red flags it was out of the blue and if would have just said something we would have been glad to help him anyway we could,” Joshua Malone said.
The money raised from today‘s block party will help the family and create an Anti-Bullying Foundation in Evans honor to bring attention and awareness to bullying.
The family set up a go fund me page, you find the link here.
