DHS confirms another child death at Diamond Ranch Academy

<< < (2/2)

From this article: The Troubled Teen Industry: The Politics of Abuse Within Therapeutic Boarding Schools (Medium)

--- Quote from: Medium ---While Beckler was enrolled in Diamond Ranch Academy a student named Jake Spencer hanged himself. “I remember that an ambulance came and everyone was put on lockdown and forced to stay in their rooms. The showers were closed for three days and when we were finally allowed to shower again they had installed collapsible shower rods so no one else could hang themselves”. Beckler never received counseling to cope with the death of his classmate.

Wow. Only 3 teenagers had to die before the state of Utah decided to do the obivious. Closing them down!
