Of course not, teenagers drop dead all over the place for no reason.
Nothing to see here, move along, move along.

I find your comment Phil very insensitive. As a parent I am fully aware of the pressures on young children and worry about mine all the time. Its fairly obvious what has happened if they are not treating it as suspicious. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.

Phil, with the insensitive and very inappropriate message you have posted you dont have kids of your own, because I'm damm sure if you did have you wouldn't want someone posting comments like yours.

Comments like that should be kept in your thoughts and not shared.

Thoughts go out too the boys family and everyone who knew him.

RIP young man

Very very sad. I used to live just around the corner many years ago. I feel for the family he left behind, so difficult particularly with the Christmas season upon us. What a horrible waste of a life.

Very sad story. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the lad. Can't even begin to imagine how low he must have been feeling to take such action. Rest in Peace.
