Community clergy to hold meetings on Monroe-Woodbury suicides

Community clergy members in the Monroe-Woodbury School District say they plan to hold several town-hall style meetings in response to at least eight suicide-related incidents in the past few weeks.

Those incidents include the deaths of 16-year-old Justin Dimino and 14-year-old Kameron Jacobsen. Jacobsen?s death is still being investigated by police and also whether cyber-bullying played a role.

The school district brought in teen-suicide prevention experts to speak with parents during a meeting last night.

Local clergy members say the meetings will take place this month and times and locations will be posted on the school district's website.
