The grieving mom had written in her personal blog that her daughter was so distraught about having a sibling. “We were as happy as happy could be until one day my then 8-year-old woke up and decided that she wasn’t exactly thrilled about being a Big Sister,” Torres  wrote according to the Daily News.

If Williams’ death is categorized as a suicide, she will be the second child to have taken her own life in the borough in less than a year.   Last May, Wilnery Polanco-Uben, 11, committed suicide after she played hooky from school and texted her friends of her impending death at her own hands. The child hung herself from a bedroom door.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that fewer than one in 100,000 children ages 10 to 14 years old commit suicide each year.

  1. I am sad for her family’s loss but, unfortunately I understand what she was thinking, even, unfortunately at 9 years old.

  2. How do you know at 8 years old u want to kill your self. It seems to be the thing to do now end it all. I know we really don’t know what was going on. I am saddened by this tragedy. I feel that could have been my own child. I will pray for this new generation of kid’s that God has a plan for you although it may see hopeless. It will be better in the morning.
