Police reviewing a rash of teen suicides all in the same area of Wales

South Wales Police are to review a number of suicides among young people in the same area.
Last week another local teenager was found dead, bringing to 13 the number of suspected suicides aged under 26 in the Bridgend area over the past year.

Local MP Madeleine Moon has claimed social networking websites could have been "romanticising suicide".

But police stress there is no evidence of a "suicide pact," nor anything to suggest the deaths are linked.

The coroner for the Bridgend area has said he is "desperately concerned" about the 13 deaths of young people since early 2007.

This is a little alarming and spookey IMO-13 teenagers all from the same area-Brigend, South Wales, have all committed suicide within the past year. Another source I read claims they all HANGED themselves. If true, that points to something a little more than coincidence...

Going to be keeping an eye on this. Pretty disturbing.

That was the first thing that crossed my mind...Perhaps there's a local doc mass prescribing something, or they're getting something through underground means that is screwing up their minds and emotional states.

You know the more i read the more i think this may have been a serial killer.

It just seems to fit . they didn't really know each other used the same site.

"A neighbor, Andrew Grzywaczewski helped save Leah's life by cutting the cord tied around her neck as her stepfather held her off the ground. The 30-year-old then gave Leah mouth-to-mouth resuscitation until she began breathing again.

"If I could understand why she done it, maybe she could try help save another child," Tina Phillips said.

But Leah's simply told them she doesn't know why she tried to take her own life."

Is disturbing all in itself . what could posibly be causing this?

If I have to take the conspiracy street I'd say mind control. If I have to take the paranormal street, I'd say there's something in the websites making them do it. And the skeptic street says its just a coincidence.

To be honest it's very strange 13 suicides and that one girl doesn't know why she did it. There has to be more to uncover - medications , friends , etc. If we can't draw any lines to connect these people then it is just a coincidence. So how are they connected?

Well this has been eating me up all day long - and tin foil hats at the ready:

here's what I can get in a time line
Jan 5
Dale Crole
18 years old from Porthcawl, near Bridgend. Missing for 4 months. Was in a young offenders institution. Liked to get drunk and stoned. Was last seen September 25 2006 and found in a disused warehouse at the Coney Beach Fairground, in Porthcawl. He was hanging, with his baseball cap on a nail beside him. Body was too decomposed to identify properly.
coney beach fun fair panoramic:

David Dilling
19 years old from Pyle near Bridgend. Best friends with Dale Crole. Known as Dai. They hung out together at the warehouse Dale hanged himself in. He hanged himself in February from a tree.

February 25
Thomas Davies aged 20.
He was a friend of both David Dilling and Dale Crole. He bought a suit to attend David's funeral, but hanged himself from a tree on the 25th, 2 days before the service.

Zachary Barnes. 17 from Wildmill Bridgend. He was a friend of the Davies family. He was found hanging from a washing line.

December 27
Liam Clarke
Aged 20 he was a close friend of Dale Crole. He was into the military, and dressed up with airsoft guns and cammo. He hanged himself in a park, Cefn Coed Lane.

January 5 2008
Gareth Morgan 27 years old.
A friend of Liam Clarke and a father of one.

January 24 2008
Natasha Randall aged 17. She hanged herself in her bedroom.

Then 2 of her friends tried and failed to kill themselves within 24 hours of hearing of this.

Here is a list of 13 deaths in Bridgend.
13 deaths
Are they connected?
They all knew each other.

In the Bridgend cases, there is no evidence that any of the suicide victims had visited websites which encouraged or explained how to commit suicide. But rumours about a possible suicide pact began not long after the funeral of the third of three friends to die in similar circumstances.

Melanie Davies, mother of 20-year-old Thomas Davies, who was found hanged in a park in February 2007, said that a whispering campaign had begun shortly after she had brought back her son's ashes to the terrace house where he was raised in Cornelly, Bridgend. "Ages they've been going on. The rumours died down again - until now," she said this week.
The content of the rumours was chilling: "There's a pact. There's six of them. Pulling straws to decide who goes when."


Now what is going on. I havent answered anything here, but perhaps we have strung it out to get a clearer view. Help me? Mind control, suicide pact?? What is it?
Skunk work me if you must but is this related?'

WOW...Good work MrDead! Something is DEFINITELY beyond chance in this. I hope we'll get some more answers soon. I wonder if there's anyone at ATS that lives near Bridgend that would be willing to do some investigative work into this? It's pretty alarming.

Thanks for the information. This is really creepy, and there could be many possibilities. I don't understand why the police would have closed this case when it could have led to more deaths. A suicide pact (or suicide cult), a murderer, or something in the area (such as led poisoning or something in the water etc) are possibilities. And going back to police I do not understand why it appears they have ruled out the fact that in one way or another they were acquaintances.

Just like others here, there is just something that is not sitting right,

I think 1, the 2 girls who attempted suicide should be looked at very closely, maybe the police should look at there computer activity over the past year,

So many things need to be looked at.. theres a link somewhere.. it just being able to piece that together,

Looks like someone in Wales has a Death Note.

I live in Cardiff which is just a few miles up the M4 from Bridgend and this has caused a stir here aswell...

I have a few friends who live in Bridgend and they are all screaming suicide pact but as far as I know there is nothing definite yet...

I will get in touch with them today and see if they know any more

Suicide pact for what though? These kids all seemed on the outside to be fine.
This is bugging me to death.

2 of her friends tried to kill themselves, and as far as we know, one of them doesn't know why she tried to do it.

Dale Crole went missing for a few months then they found him. February, his best friend David Dilling hanged himself. Then 2 days before David's funeral, Thomas Davies hangs himself, after buying a suit to attend the funeral. It goes on...

Am I wrong - is Suicide pact an acceptable answer? And if so, why is it? It doesn't explain anything.

This whole series of deaths just throws a spanner in my brains gears to say it's just something kids do, or its the cool thing to do like some news is reporting it. No - there's a reason to it.
Maybe I won't find it out but I hope somebody does.
It would be cool if you could give us some info The Bandit, maybe theres something not getting reported.

Maybe self-initiated population control to fight global warming.

I wish I weren't, but I'm being serious. UK youth are bombarded with so much of this garbage I've seen in interviews kids saying they lose sleep over it. That if they don't plant fifty trees to offset their carbon footprint or submit to a carbon tax they are evil people and are going to Hell. Like any religion, gotta get 'em while they're young.

Perhaps there is some relation to the entire family that hung themselves in France.

I've been through the bebo website of several of these people and their friends, and there's nothing to suggest anything like that though.
Bebo is like myspace, in that its a social networking site. You have friends, and they link together etc. So you pull on a thread and you can follow it somewhere. These kids all seemed shocked that their friends would kill themselves. They set up RIP and memory areas. "I miss you" "Goodnight Princess" etc.
Then they hang themselves.

I think maybe I'm over thinking this and probably should leave it alone.

Alot of theories already about why they would want to kill themselves, but everyone is missing the obvious. They live in wales, that in itself is reason enough to want to end it all. And before youy tell me I don't know what I'm talking about I've lived in Cardiff, Swansea and Pontypool oh and had a lovely holiday on Barry Island.

on a more serious note, sounds like a pact to me, were they all goths/emo's ?

Was it depression? drugs? suicide pact? mind control? something else?

Scary, cos this isn't a million miles away from me...

If they all knew each other then maybe the first two deaths were coincidence, but the others could have been through distress and depression as a result of the first two deaths... causing others to view it all as a conspiracy...

but what's strange is why the young girl didn't know why she was attempting to kill herself.

We seriously need an "on scene" reporter. If we could get an interview , Maybe we could get some answers.

Maybe they accidentally killed there friend . And cant live with it . Or one of them has something BIG to hide.

No, none of them seem to be,

They appear to be normal young people with a lot of life left in them,

Being that this is occurring in the secular society of the UK, don't be surprised if it turns out a Satanic Cult is involved.
