Following apparently relentless bullying from her classmates, an eight-year-old schoolgirl in Great Britain hung herself on a jump rope. According to a newspaper report in The Indepentent on Tuesday, the police have found no evidence of a criminal act. The schoolgirl, identified as Marie Bentham, was often teased by her classmates and had refused to return to school on Monday following the Christmas holiday.
