Teens' lives were troubled
Two local teens whose consecutive suicides triggered a cascade of fearful rumors had turbulent home lives that prompted investigations by Child Protective Services this year, officials said Friday.

Two local teens whose consecutive suicides triggered a cascade of fearful rumors had turbulent home lives that prompted investigations by Child Protective Services this year, officials said Friday.

At least one of the teens was bullied constantly at school before he killed himself, his mother said.

The teens, who both had attended Brandeis High School, were close friends who belonged to a group known as the Crimson Blood Wolf Pack and dressed like wolves.

Both hanged themselves within a week. The most recent death was Wednesday, when a 16-year-old boy's mother found him wearing a collar and hanging in his closet by a leash.

A 14-year-old girl was found hanging Sept. 22 behind the John Igo Branch Library.

The boy's mother said her family had been suffering through "a lot of extremely emotional things," including financial problems and an acrimonious divorce and custody battle.

A CPS investigation was sparked in February when officials got a call that utilities had been shut off at the family's home. That case was closed when the utilities were restored.

Officials say the 14-year-old girl who killed herself last week told a CPS investigator in August that she didn't feel safe at home.

The girl's relatives could not be reached Friday. Their deaths came amid a rash of publicized youth suicides nationwide.

An 18-year-old Rutgers University student jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge last week, and Tuesday, a 19-year-old sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin shot himself with an AK-47.

The local deaths sparked fears of a suicide pact among the self-styled wolves and even a planned shooting at Brandeis.

While the girl did attend Brandeis, the boy had been expelled for bringing a knife to campus and was attending Bexar County's Juvenile Justice Academy, Northside Independent School District spokesman Pascual Gonzalez said.

He said that Friday, about 120 students left Brandeis early, but officials found no evidence to support any of the rumors.

"We are not convinced that there is a list or a pact or anything like that," Gonzalez said.

The school's principal, Geri Berger, sent a text message Friday to all 2,800 students and their parents warning of the dangers of unfounded rumors and urging them to call (210) 397-SAFE with any legitimate information.

The mother of the 16-year-old boy Friday night organized a candlelight vigil at her home that was attended by about 75 friends, some members of the wolf pack.

The boy who died was known as Deikitsen Wolfram Lupus by his packmates.

"If there is a pact out there, I want it rescinded," said the mother, who asked that she only be identified as Pamela.

Packmates at the vigil described the boy as "sweet" and "kindhearted."

Steven Suwanasung, 17, who sports fangs and a tail, described the wolf pack as a support group.

"It's a big family, all of us," he said. "We care for each other."

The pack's "alpha" leader, Sarah Rodriguez, is known as Wolfie Blackheart. She said Friday that the boy who killed himself recently asked her if he could start his own wolf pack at Brandeis. She told him he could.

"He's one of my submissives, but he leads a group of others," Blackheart said.

Dr. Anne Esquivel, a local clinical psychologist, said the teens likely are drawn to the packs in search of acceptance.

"They need to feel included in something," Esquivel said. "These are going to be kids that are going to be socially isolated. Maybe they don't have a tight family unit."

But Esquivel warned that the trappings of the packs could backfire.

"Whenever you go to such lengths to be eccentric, you are going to be ostracized," she said. "You want acceptance, but you're setting yourself up to not be accepted."

The boy's mother said her son, who wore long hair, chains and a tail, was bullied at school.

"He stuck out because he chose to wear the tail, and they made a spectacle of him," she said. "Because he was different, he'd get teased."

It's not about them wanting to make a spectacle of themselves.  Its about them wanting to be themselves, with or without any "spectacle".  They support the notion to be free of fear to fit into any norm except what they feel is important to them.  That's what we all want - not having to worry about being pointed at, because no one sees any reason to point.

I am extremely saddened to hear about these suicides, especially regarding Lupus because of actually seeing him in the video, this some sort of attachment to him as a result.  That is absolutely horrible.  The family must have been devastated.  My heart goes out to all of them.

As a therian, and more over, as a wolf, This is horrifying. I mean, let the kids be whoever they want, but this is almost painful to watch. This is not how I, as a therian, act. Or how any other therian I know of acts. I feel these kids have seen something on the internet and are copying it. I can't say I don't like the outfit, but it makes me take them less seriously for sure.

i agree any THERIAN who would willingly dismember anything that was once alive is cracked in the head.personalley, what tf HAPPENED to the name therian?nwith this video its like saying were all rabid animals running around, and be far from me to say it, but i was taught different than this....... simple minded I WANNA BE A HORROR HOUND FURRY crap Angry i was taught therians respect and REVERE nature, not destroy it and desecrate remains of a brother/sister. freaks. call it harsh and maybe i am but this? this just makes us scapegoats for horror speculative analysis and gives CHILDREN an excuse to be violent. no therian i have ever met believes such. Amen wolf brothers and sisters.
