Friends: 15-year-old Connecticut boy who committed suicide was bullied – CNN.com


(CNN) — A 15-year-old Connecticut boy who shot and killed himself last week with the family shotgun had sustained years of bullying, friends said Monday.

Bart Palosz committed suicide August 27 after attending the first day of his sophomore year at Greenwich High School in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Friends who knew Bart, a Polish immigrant, told CNN he was the target of bullies due to his size — the teen was 6 feet, 3 inches tall — and Polish accent. The friends described him as “a little awkward in his body” but said he was a “giant sweetheart” who related more with adults than his peers.
