Felix - Age 17

Felix Sacco was a 17-year-old senior at Saugus High School, Saugus Massachusetts who took his own life in late September 2010.  According to his mother, Felix had been seeing a psychiatrist (and in fact had an appointment earlier in the week) to cope with the bullying he was subjected.  On the day of his death her son went to the guidance office and reportedly was seen crying by students.  She believes that he was turned away when he was looking for help.  It was then, according to WHDH, that Sacco left school and walked some distance to the overpass from which he jumped.  The school has initiated an investigation.
