London police are investigating the apparent suicide of an 11-year-old girl whose parents say she was bullied.

Police say Hailey Petee hanged herself Saturday night in her home. Police say the girl had been bullied before. Her parents told reporters Petee wore thick glasses, had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and was teased by other youngsters outside of school. The mother says she contacted the London School District, but authorities took no substantive action. The district says it doesn't tolerate bullying.
