Torres found her little girl with a white cloth strung around her neck and dangling from the metal shower door frame. Williams was taken to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead 12 minutes after she arrived.

The fourth grader had actually been undergoing therapy after she revealed her death wish to her mother and stepfather as soon as she found out about the pregnancy.

Williams then reportedly could not cope with the birth of her half-sibling. Torres had the baby eight months ago with her husband.

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 Daily News.

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.
