Two Minnesota 14-year old girls during an overnight sleepover slumber party died by suicide, hanging themselves after enduring bullying at school. Halyee Fentress and Paige Moravetz were described as being “one.”
“The girls were apparently inseparable and loved each other,” writes LGBT POV. There are questions as to the girls’ relationship, some suggesting they were lovers or, at least, confused by their feelings.
While suicide notes were left, specific contents have not been released.
One cousin, in the video below, says, “they were sort of one and the same, I think Haley found somebody that was kind of herself.”
The Fentress family released this statement, saying, “we need to stop pretending this isn’t happening or that is just a cry for attention because obviously it is not. It shouldn’t take more tragedies to realize this.”
“The two girls were so close, Haylee had hyphenated her last name on Facebook to include Paige’s last name,” according to ABC News.
