Connecticut teen kills himself after friends say he was bullied

A Connecticut teenager took his own life last week after his first day of school and it now appears he was suffering from years of bullying.

According to friends of 15-year-old Bart Palosz, the polish immigrant, was teased because he was 6-foot-3 and had a polish accent, but his internal struggles only came to light after his death.

Police reopen rape case of Canadian teen who committed suicide

Our third story OutFront – case reopened.

Police have announced they are going to re-open the investigation into the rape of Rehteah Parsons, the 17-year-old from Canada who committed suicide after photos of her alleged gang-rape circulated among classmates.

Police say new and credible information has been brought forward by the public, while an earlier police investigation ended without criminal charges. That failed investigation was one of the reasons why Rehteah's  mother says she was struggling emotionally.

Paula Newton is OutFront with the story.
