Mom: Son, 11, killed himself after girlfriend faked suicide
Charges are pending against a juvenile after a Michigan mother said a social media prank, in which her 11-year-old son's girlfriend faked her own suicide, led the boy to take his own life. Katrina Goss said Thursday that she found her son, Tysen Benz, hanging by the neck March 14 in his room after seeing social media posts and texts that his 13-year-old girlfriend had killed herself. Goss said the girl and some of her friends orchestrated the prank. It was not clear who faces charges.
