A Le Grande, Oregon teenager died on Sunday at a Portland hospital following an apparent suicide attempt. The family of openly gay high school sophomore Jadin Bell made the difficult decision to take him off life support last week after he was hospitalized earlier in January. Superintendent Larry Glaze reported that Jadin had complained of bullying and sought help from a guidance counselor at his school. 

Last week, Le Grand High School students held a vigil for Jadin, during which attendees spoke about his life and expressed support for his family.
