MCKINNEY, TX - While many people in McKinney believe a boy committed suicide to escape bullying, the school district says there is no record that Raymond Howell, Jr. or his family reported bullying.

The body of Howell was found in a drainage ditch last week, by a 17-year-old friend who is now charged in connection with his death.
