(Meredith)– A Colorado mother said her 9-year-old child devoted suicide simply weeks after coming out as gay, and she believes bullying is partly to blame for his death.

Leia Pierce told KDVR-TV her boy, Jamel Myles, started fourth-grade at Joe Shoemaker Grade School in Denver on Monday.

The mama said Jamel informed her he was gay over the summertime.

” He looked so frightened when he informed me,” she said. “And I stated, ‘I still enjoy you.'”

With a new-found self-confidence, the 9-year-old young boy was delighted to come out to his schoolmates.

” He went to school and stated he was going to tell individuals he’s gay because he takes pride in himself,” Pierce stated.

4 days into the school year, she discovered her boy dead.

” 4 days is all it took,” Pierce stated. “My son told my oldest daughter the kids at school told him to eliminate himself. I’m just unfortunate he didn’t pertain to me.”

Denver Public Schools stated in a letter to parents that it’s providing a crisis group for trainees affected by this disaster. The district also stated it will continue to offer support for Jamel’s family.

Cheryl Hudson stated her boy, Andrew Leach, left a heartbreaking note and hung himself on March 6.

His 16-year-old sibling found his body in the garage after school.

Hudson claims bullying runs widespread at Southaven Intermediate school, where her child attended.

” A few years ago there was a girl who hung herself from a water tower due to bullying,” she said. “There have been numerous efforts ever since with other kids.”

When asked if she ever talked to school officials about the bullying, Hudson stated, “I just spoke to the school’s Sixth grade principal. I didn’t know the best ways to handle it. His father did talk to a teacher one time. But from exactly what we are hearing, there was a group of kids that would walk around calling him fat, ugly and useless.”

The family states law enforcement is investigating.

A GoFundMe account has currently raised $7,000.

” Oh my God, my heart has been removed of my chest and shattered in a million pieces,” Hudson wrote on the household’s GoFundMe page. “Thank you to all who have actually contributed thus far. You have no concept how grateful we are.”
