Jeannie Chambers broke down briefly on a recent shopping trip with daughter, Kayla Weishuhn. Kayla caught her mother looking for clothes in a different section of the store.
“I looked for clothes for K.J.,” Chambers said.
K.J. is Kenneth James Weishuhn Jr., the 14-year-old son she lost April 14 when he committed suicide at their home in Primghar.
Police interviewed at least 16 teens in a follow-up investigation, but they charged no one in connection with K.J.’s death, a death that family members contend might have been avoided were in not for the bullying behavior from a faction of youth at South O’Brien High School, where K.J. was a freshman.
