An Ohio sixth-grader reportedly took his own life. According to reports, the fatal decision came after school bullies told him to commit suicide.

Aaron Fuller, 13, hung himself with a belt in his bedroom on January, 11. His family now believes his tragic demise was the result of bullying he experienced at Lake Middle School.

Aaron was found with a belt around his neck by his family when they returned home from running errands. Unfortunately, by the time they found him, there was no way to save him.

Aaron’s stepmother, Tami Fuller is a nurse and tried to perform CPR but it did not help. She tried everything possible but he had already passed.

According to his family, Aaron was bullied by students who picked on the teen’s clothing. They reportedly also told him to kill himself on social media before the boy was found dead.

His parents reported the incident to the school. However, they were reportedly told by officials that they couldn’t do anything because Aaron also played a role in the exchange.

“He was picked on and picked on and picked on, and Friday night was the last night he was going to be picked on,” revealed Aaron’s uncle Joshua Tooley.

School officials confirmed police are investigating the case. The school district released a statement saying while their thoughts are with his family, they have no further comment on the situation at the time.

“Our school family is heartbroken over the death of our student, Aaron Fuller,” the district said in a statement. “Our prayers go out to Aaron’s family and friends during this most difficult time. All of us who knew Aaron are grieving and will miss him very much. At this time, due to an ongoing police investigation and potential litigation, the district will have no further comments regarding this matter.”

Aaron’s family, on the other hand, has decided to speak out. They want to raise awareness about preventing bullying in the hopes of saving someone else from the same fate as Aaron.

“[The bullying] has to stop,” Aaron’s dad, Steve Fuller, told the Blade. “People have to learn. … These kids aren’t just getting bullied, but they know if they go say something to a teacher or someone else, they’re the next one who is going to get picked on or beat up.”
