The devastated parents of an 11-year-old boy who killed himself because he was bullied at school have shared his heartbreaking goodbye. Diego jumped from a fifth floor window of the family home on October 14 last year after complaining that he was having trouble at school and was unhappy.
In a bid to persuade authorities in Villaverde, Madrid, to launch a full investigation into the death of Diego Gonzalez, his parents decided to publish the tragic letter.
His letter read: "Daddy, Mummy…I hope that one day you will be able to hate me a little less. I can’t stand going to school and there is no other way to avoid it.
"Dad, you taught me to be a good person and to keep promises…Mum, you have taken care of me very well and shown me a lot of places…Grandpa, you have always been very generous to me and have looked out for me.
"Tata, you have put up with a lot from me. I miss you and I hope one day we can meet again in heaven. Well, I say goodbye forever."
Diego left the note beside a teddy bear he had since he was born, El Mundo reports. He was a pupil at Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles School in Madrid and now his parents want answers from the local authority.
"In this school strange things are happening and, at least, must be investigated," Diego's father told a newspaper.
Despite Diego's letter and several other complaints from parents at the school, police 'ruled out' his death was due to a case of bullying.
