(Rittman, Ohio) Nicholas Kelo Jr., 13, used a gun to commit suicide on Feb. 23 in his home.

His mother Jaqueline Kelo said her son was bullied for many years. “We would talk and he would say [of the bullies] that they were not worth his time,” she said in the Beacon Journal.

It is not known whether Nick considered himself to be gay. However, when he switched extra curricular activities—from football to band—rumors that we was gay circulated through his school.  “After that, it [the bullying] spiraled out of control,” mother Jaqueline Kelo said.
