9-Year-Old Girl Commits Suicide After Telling Parents She Was Jealous Of Baby Brother


My heart is aching for this mother, and for this entire family. 9-year-old Justice Williams (pictured center) was found hanging in the bathroom of her Bronx, NY home on Sunday night.

Police suspect that Justice committed suicide after she repeatedly told relatives she wanted to die. The girl reportedly had a hard time adjusting to being a big sister to her new 8 month old baby brother, reports the New York Daily News.

Williams’ mother, Tamiqua Torres, 31 (pictured left), noticed her daughter was taking a long time to shower so she went to the bathroom to check on Justice. Upon entering the bathroom, Torres found her little girl with a white cloth strung around her neck and dangling from the metal shower door frame. Williams was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead 12 minutes after she arrived.

The grieving mom wrote in her personal blog that her daughter was extremely unhappy about having a sibling. “We were as happy as happy could be until one day my then 8-year-old woke up and decided that she wasn’t exactly thrilled about being a Big Sister,” Torres  wrote according to the Daily News.

My prayers go out to this family. I hope that God gives them some comfort during this time.

  1. I can’t imagine an 8 or 9 year old even thinking about suicide. Such a sad story.
