Hayward Teen Found Dead After Twin Brother Attempts Suicide

HAYWARD (AP) – A search-and-rescue team located a body believed to be that of a 15-year-old Hayward boy whose twin brother had to be subdued a day earlier.

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

The San Francisco Chronicle reported the team discovered the body at about 8 a.m. Wednesday in a ravine behind Hayward High School.

Alameda County sheriff’s Sgt. J.D. Nelson tells the Chronicle the body did not appear to have been in the ravine for long. The body was not positively identified.

The apparent victim’s twin brother had been found in a home Tuesday amid a report of a burglary in progress. Nelson says the boy had slashed himself with a knife, tried to fill the home with gas and asked deputies to kill him.

The twins’ names had not been released.

An autopsy was planned.

  • Carmen Davis

    very good boys? Why were they not in school, instead of doing a burgulary. I will now go hug my very good children that never performed a burgulary, or were never in trouble…..

    • kuuipo

      carmen have some respect for this family !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      karma will kick u in the butt later

    • Shocked

      They werent burglarizing the home so if you dont know the facts dont speculate! It seemed like a burglary because it was the first home he ran into in attempt to kill himself! To all the ppl with negative comments take a minute to think what you would do if it was your children or child in that situation. You have no idea if they were suffering from an illness or if something tragic had occurred in their lives. So please think twice before posting comments!

    1. They had the BEST parents EVER who where desperately looking for them since they became aware that they did not show up at school.
    2. Reporters blow everything out of proportion, he was not stealing anything.
    3. I agree with kuuipo, you should be ashamed of your self Carmen, your a mother, I hope you never have to go through the pain we have right now.

    These children were troubled and one was looking desperately for a way to die that would not involve him personally ending his own life. He was trying to burn himself up in the house and then begged the police to kill him while lunging at them with the knife. This was not a case of bad kids. Get the facts before you make a comment.

    • kuuipo316

      how do you know !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      do u know the family personally like i do

      • songstress411

        I know the person that stopped him from stabbing himself.

      • songstress411

        This is a tragedy and I feel so badly for the family. My prayers are with them. No one ever knows when something like this will hit close to home so everyone should be sweet to each other.

  • MMM

    its so sad that some cant just show some compassion for them and their family. my brother went to school w them and was shocked when he heard. he and many more are struggling to understand why this took place! be careful about judgeing people cause this could happen to anyone! to the family im soooo sorry for your loss!
