DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A candlelight vigil will be held Tuesday in Davenport in honor of a bullied Iowa teen who committed suicide.

Fourteen-year-old Kenneth Weishuhn Jr., of Primghar, died April 15 of what the O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office has described only as a “self-inflicted injury.”

The teen’s mother, Jeannie Chambers, has said she knew her son was being harassed for being gay but she didn’t realize the extent of the bullying.

Q-C Pride Inc. is organizing Tuesday’s vigil.

The Quad-City Times reports it’s set for 7:30 p.m. at the Vander Veer Botanical Park.
