LITTLE ROCK, AR - Chandler Barnwell's Facebook page is littered with posts reading 'Everyone's sorry for making fun of you.' But the sentiments come too late for his mother, Anna Barnwell.
"Yes my son was bullied at school. And it was happening probably on a daily basis," said Barnwell.
Chandler Barnwell committed suicide after school on December 7th, 2010.
"I lost my son. He died," said Barnwell. "It's not like somebody picked on him and I came in to complain. They showed me very little respect."
Now, more than two and a half years after her son's suicide, Barnwell is filing a complaint with the Little Rock School District through the U.S. Department of Education saying her son killed himself as a result of bullying that someone reported and the district still allowed.
"When I met with that administration, they basically refused to do any type of investigation involving students or even looking into what had allegedly happened to Chandler his last day of school," said Barnwell.
So now the Feds are taking over. Since it's an ongoing investigation, all the Department of Education can share is someone is investigating the district on two violations of the law: That Chandler was discriminated against due to his sex or gender, and because of his disability. Chandler had Asperger's Syndrome - a form of Autism.
"It makes me feel sick that we turn our children over to these people every day and we can't rely on them to protect them," said Barnwell.
Chandler's mother doesn't plan on stopping the push for further investigations until she knows these students are safe.
"When you lose a child, it changes you. And I'll do whatever I have to do to make sure this doesn't happen in this district again."
The Little Rock School District did not get back to Fox16 with a comment on this investigation but Barnwell tells us she's submitted plenty of evidence and student testimony to the Department of Education and still has more actions to come.
