A 15 year old troubled girl committed SUICIDE earlier this week . . . after members of the football team bragged on Facebook about running a train on her.
The young woman, Felicia Garcia, was from a troubled home. She was taken away from her parents and placed in Foster care at a young age. Once there, she ran away from her foster home seven times.
This weekend a group of members of the Football team bragged on Facebook about how they exploited the FRESHMAN – who started school just a few weeks ago. After the bullying she received, Felicia posted on Twitter, “I cant, im done, I give up.” She then stepped in front of a train and killed herself.
School officials heard of the bullying and set up a mediation session Wednesday with a counselor and one of the 17-year-old boys. The teenager denied harassing the girl, the sources said.
Leaving the office, Felicia later ran into the other 17-year-old who had been making her life miserable — and they exchanged words, the sources said. Police did not say what was said. But it was enough to send Felicia marching off to the Huguenot station of the Staten Island Railroad, where she killed herself in front of horrified classmates.
Senior Alissa Compitello said she saw Felicia on the way to the train station and the girl told her that she had the mediation because of the bullying. “She was smiling though, like everything was going to be okay,” said Compitello, 17.
But a quick look at Felicia’s Instagram account would have revealed the depths of her despair. On it, she placed a picture of herself with the word “Depressed” covering her eyes. “Just because someone is smiling doesn’t make them happy,” read her caption.
