13-year-old’s possible suicide would be third suicide in Secaucus

A 13-year-old Secaucus Middle School student passed away on Monday, on Columbus Day, and rumors say it was a suicide. However, Thursday, police said the Medical Examiner’s Office is still attempting to determine the cause of death.
However, the death was at least the third by suicide in Secaucus in the last four months. In July, a woman jumped in front of an NJ Transit train at the Frank R. Lautenberg Station. Last month, a Harmon Cove Towers resident jumped from the 19th floor of his building.
Beginning Tuesday, grief counselors were on hand in the Secaucus High School/Middle School cafeteria, and school psychologists and social workers also were on hand throughout the week for additional student counseling.
