Tysen Benz, 11, Killed Himself After Girlfriend Faked Her Own Death
Tysen Benz, 11, was still okay when he went home from his tutoring session. Little did the mother know, that that was the last day she will see her middle son smile.
It was March 14 when Tysen Benz committed suicide after receiving a cruel prank from his girlfriend that she’s dead. His girlfriend, whose name cannot be mentioned, used her friend’s account to make the prank even more real. The first text he received from a familiar person (who was just her girlfriend) was telling him that someone her knew had taken her life—pertaining to his girlfriend.
The conversation went on and told the person from another line that he is going to kill himself. “She did a prank that made it look like she killed herself and used other friends and their [social media] accounts to make it look like she killed herself,” Katrina Goss, Tysen’s mother told to New York Post.
Earlier that day, Katrina Goss could still see his son happy and proud that he went to his tutoring class without being prompted. She even baked some treats for his good conduct, she told Washington Post.
Around 10 PM when Goss went to check on her sons and say good night, she noticed that Tysen’s room was locked. She opened it with a key and saw that Tysen was not in his room. Thinking that her middle son was just goofing around, he checked every side and corner of his room only to find his son hanging in the closet. ““I ended up finding him in the closet. … I tried to hurry up and lift him up. I was screaming. I told my oldest son to call 911. My littlest one was bawling,” she narrated.
The unnamed girl has been charged with misdemeanor, which is punishable by a six-month sentence; and using computer to perform a crime, which carries a year punishment.
Medical professionals was able to revive Tysen when he got to the hospital; however, he died three weeks after the incident due to his injuries.
