Family: Bullied 9-year-old killed himself

Police in West Virginia confirm that a 9-year-old boy killed himself after the family claims he was bullied to death.

The body of 9-year-old Jackson Grubb was found in his sister's bedroom on Saturday, Sept. 10 after a silent 911 call.

The Raleigh County Sheriff's Office says:  "Based upon the examination of the scene and interview of various witnesses and neighbors foul play is not suspected."
