MARION, Ind. (WISH) - A Marion teenager committed suicide at school on Monday.
Police in Marion were investigating the death at McCulloch Junior High School, Marion Community Schools officials said.
The Grant County coroner said 14-year-old Braylee Rice used a tie to hang herself on bleachers. She was in class and left around 8:45 a.m.
Around 10:17 a.m., she was discovered by other students. She's believed to have died about seven minutes later.
Counselors were being offered at the school. Officials said it was too early to know whether bullying was a factor in the girl's death.
The school didn't dismiss early, though some parents did pick up their children from the school.
