“He would tell me that kids would say things to him that would hurt his feelings.”

The mother of ninth grader Nigel Shelby, who committed suicide last week after being bullied at school is speaking out. Camika Shelby says that Nigel was bullied by kids at Huntsville High School in Alabama as he battled depression and accepting his sexuality.

“He would tell me that kids would say things to him that would hurt his feelings,” Shelby says. “I didn’t think it was as deep as things I’m hearing now.”

Shelby says she left for work while he was still sleeping and came home to Nigel taking his own life, “I knew he was depressed, we were going to see doctors…I’m still shocked,” says Shelby.

The principal at Huntsville High School issued a memo that sided with the Shelby family and asked parents and students to discuss the death of Nigel and to talk about ways they can make a difference.
