Huffington Post: Kenneth Weishuhn Suicide: Details In Gay Iowa Teen's Death After Allegedly Enduring Threats Emerge


April 18, 2012- Poignant details about Kenneth Weishuhn, the gay Iowa teen who took his own life after friends and family say his classmates sent him death threats on his cell phone and made him the subject of a Facebook hate group, are continuing to emerge.

Numerous media outlets are pointing to the 14-year-old's Pinterest page. One section, titled "When I get married," features photos of vintage menswear, candle centerpieces and wedding cake toppers depicting two grooms. Another section, titled "Inspiration," includes a number of anti-bullying sentiments, along with a quote attributed to "Glee" actor Chris Colfer: "There's nothing wrong with you, there's a lot wrong with the world you live in."

Sister Kayla Weishuhn said Kenneth was actually quite popular before he came out last month. "He had a lot of friends but once they found out he was gay a lot of them turned on him." Kayla, a sophomore, told ABC 9 KCAUTV, before noting that many of her classmates also bullied her brother: "I was just really mad because those guys were supposed to be my friends and they were making fun of my brother. I tried to stick up for him a couple of times but I guess it wasn't enough."
