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.
