According to police, Williams fared well in school and was not the victim of bullying.

The grieving mom had written on her personal blog that her daughter was so distraught about having a sibling. “We were as happy as happy could be until one day my then 8-year-old woke up and decided that she wasn’t exactly thrilled about being a Big Sister,” Torres wrote according to the TMZHIPHOP.com

If Williams’ death is categorized as a suicide, she will be the second child to have taken her own life in the borough in less than a year.

Last May, Wilnery Polanco-Uben, 11, committed suicide after she played hooky from school and texted her friends of her impending death at her own hands. The child hung herself from a bedroom door.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that fewer than one in 100,000 children ages 10 to 14 years old commit suicide each year.
