NC: East Henderson Student's Suicide Sparks Bullying Discussion

If her parents knew about this, why didn't they attack the problem?  If this happened to my daughter, I imagine I would be in jail for the rest of my life or dead once caught.

The Henderson County teenager who took her own life last Saturday was laid to rest on the day after Christmas.

16 year old Amber Cornwell's death sparked a discussion about bullying in the mountains. She's remembered as a talented girl with a great sense of humor.

Amber's last Facebook post just before her suicide was heartbreaking. She asked if she died that night, "Would anyone cry?"     

At the visitation at Jackson Funeral Services, a long line answers the East Henderson High student's question.

"I've been crying for days now," says Sierra Crochet, who's known her since first grade.

"She had that sense of humor that could a smile on your face," says friend Stephanie Hernandez.

Amber had so much to live for. She was an A-B honor roll student., a tennis player, a dancer, and member of the All County Chorus.
