EDMONTON – The Redwater community held a vigil Monday to show its support for the family of a teenager who took her own life.
Katelyn Merritt was a student at Redwater School. She turned 17 just days before her death.
Friends and family believe Merritt was being bullied at school.
“She had a lot of problems here at school,” Brittani Lapointe, a friend of Merritt’s, said at the vigil Monday night. “It was every day. It was constant. She would literally leave class because she couldn’t do it.”
