Parents of Drew Ferraro--a 15-year-old boy who took his own life at nearby Crescenta Valley High School--are alleging that Glendale Unified School District did not protect their son against bullying and harassment, according to The Glendale News-Press.
The Ferraro family filed a $2-million claim against the district in July.
Drew Ferraro, 15, climbed the roof of a CVHS building and took a running jump to his death before his peers and school staff on Feb. 10, 2012.
According to the child's autopsy report, the student had a history of mental health problems. Medical examiners found traces of marijuana and Citalopram detected in the toxicology report. Citalopram, an anti-depressant, was found in Drew's system in amounts "consistent with therapeutic use.
His parents, John and Deana Ferraro, confirmed that their son was treated for depression and say that their son was bullied, The News-Press reported.
Sheriff's Homicide investigators told Patch in February 2012 that four suicide notes were left by Drew and these notes did not show evidence of bullying.
