GREENWICH, Conn. - An online profile apparently of the Greenwich student who killed himself Tuesday shows a troubled teen who threatened suicide months before.
"does anyone know if you can light a 12 gauge shotgun shell(slug not pellets) with a lighter?" user Bart Palosz writes in a Google+ post.
Another posted, dated July 3, reads, "Hey if I were to stab my eye out due to school caused insanity, who would miss me?" That post includes a photo of Palosz with a knife against his eye.
Palosz, a 15-year-old Greenwich High School student, committed suicide Tuesday after his first day of school, Greenwich Police confirmed. Palosz died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound, according to police.
In June, a post apparently from Palosz claims that he attempted suicide.
"Goodbye forever my good friends, goodbye, I regret nothing," he writes. "I have chosen to go with 3 peoples advice and kill myself. I just wish it was faster."
