FAYETTE — Early on the morning of Dec. 21, Kenneth Suttner sat on a snow-covered log, texting and calling his family and friends. He sat there so long, the snow beneath him turned to ice. He placed his last phone call at 12:39 a.m., put the barrel of a .22 to his head and squeezed the trigger. Courtesy of Howard County coroner Suttner was a 17-year-old junior at Glasgow High School. Now, his former manager at Dairy Queen is accused of subjecting him to harassment and may face a charge of manslaughter. On Tuesday, a Howard County jury convened for an unusual coroner’s inquest into Suttner's death. After hearing nearly a full day of testimony, the jury returned a recommendation that his former manager at the Fayette Dairy Queen, Harley Branham of Armstrong, be indicted for felony involuntary manslaughter. Missouri law allows for a coroner to call for an inquest into the manner and cause of a person’s death. Howard County Coroner Frank Flaspohler asked a six-person jury to determine whether Suttner's death was a felony or an accident . Because bullying was suspected to be a contributing cause to Suttner’s death, Flaspohler called the inquest to determine whether the death stemmed from a public health risk.
Suicide was the second leading cause of death for Americans ages 15 to 19 in 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Nearly one in five deaths in the age group were a result of suicide, totaling 1,834 that year. Guns were used in half of all suicides in 2014. Because compiling statistics takes some time, 2014 numbers were the most recently available.
