    Wish I didn’t see this story. I can not imagine how I would deal with this If it was someone I know, let alone a child of mine.

  8. Leanne says:

    Andrew’s father has posted in Facebook that this is not a factual account of the tragic death and asks CBS to get their facts straight.

  9. Local commuter says:

    This is a very heartbreaking story. I am a local commuter and am 1 of many commuters who ended up driving through the scene before we knew it was an accident scene. I am as I am sure all the others who drove by are – extremely saddened. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends as well as the truck driver and his family as he will be affected by this horrible accident.

    1. commuter says:

      I also drove by right after and saw the boy and am still shaken. I am just so sad for the family and the truck driver. I also can’t beileve that the police didn’t make some sort of an effort to hide what happened from cars driving by. It will be a long time before the images I saw this morning go away.

    I live in Norwood, and this is the second kid from the central high school to commit suicide in less than a moth. I would like to see them do something about all the bully’s at this school that walk down the streets in town insulting both other children and adults.

    1. big daryle says:

      What the —- is going in our nice small city. Mr.Corlett, get to the bottom of this bullying and do it NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      1. Dave says:

        Video games , I phones ,I pads 3g , 4g, smart phones and theres alot of bulling going on at school . I feel sorry for kids these days . I dont see kids smiling when there using there phones these days . Must be fun .. .Its only going to get worse

    2. Sue says:

      I use to live in that small commiunity years ago it saddens me that this is happening.

    3. Sue says:

      you mean that you have Bully’s walking down the streets of Norwood Young Amercia insulting people.That is just horriable something needs to be done.

    4. Get your story straight. says:

      You live in Norwood? Then you’d know that the first suicide was 1-22-12 and the second was 3-22-12. That’s a little more than ‘less than a month.’ I’d appreciate if you would stop making Norwood sound like we are full of bullies, because you clearly have no idea what you are talking about. Both of those boys were soooo loved. I don’t think you have any idea what it’s like to hurt like those boys were hurting. I don’t really think it matters that you live in Norwood, you don’t know ANYTHING about that highschool. The pain we are all feeling, we all loved those boys and we didn’t want anything to happen to them.

    5. Unknown says:

      I was friends with both of the kids who killed themselves recently and neither of their deaths were brought on by bullying. Actually the parents at central put together a petition to get Andrew and his brother kicked out of school because they cheered for a basketball team other than their high school’s. Can someone tell me how messed up that is? Grow the f*** up.

  15. Michael says:

    Keeping all affected by this tragedy in my thoughts and prayers!!

  16. Lynda says:

    I am so sorry for your loss!! I can’t even imagine your grief! But I also want to say I am sorry for the individual driving the truck. I am sure this will weigh on his/her heart for a long time even though there was nothing they could do.

  17. shaktowngirl87 says:

    This is very tragic. My heart sank when I heard of this news. My consolences go out to the family and friends of the boy and the driver as well as the community. So sad, keep your heads held high Norwood High School students.

  18. Nate J says:

    Wow, this is such an insensitive comment. Please look within yourself and also ask if your mother would aprove of what you just said. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    I know the Mulville family, but didn’t know Andrew much at all. They are a very loving family. They will all be in my thoughts and prayers!!

  19. Susan says:

    I will not believe that some one is in theri right mind when they kill themselves.i believe they are mentally ill when they do this..That is so sad and wishing they could have gotten the help they needed before taken this drastic step.I will pray for there families.
