  • Nine-year-old Justice Williams (pictured center) was found hanging in the bathroom of her Bronx, N. Y., home on Sunday night.

    Police investigators suspect that the child committed suicide after she repeatedly told relatives she wanted to die and had problems adjusting to the birth of her half-brother, reports the New York Daily News.

    Williams’ mother, Tamiqua Torres, 31 (pictured left), made the grizzly discovery when she went to check on why her daughter was taking so long in the shower. Upon entering the bathroom, Torres found her little girl with a white cloth strung around her neck and dangling from the metal shower door frame. Williams was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead 12 minutes after she arrived.

    The fourth grader had actually been undergoing therapy after she revealed her death wish to her mother and stepfather as soon as she found out about the pregnancy. Williams then reportedly could not cope with the birth of her half-sibling. Torres had the baby eight months ago with her husband.

    According to police, Williams fared well in school and was not the victim of bullying.

    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.
