Haskins’ bicycle helmet was recovered from the scene where his body was found.
Authorities have not yet found a cause of death, but it does not appear that Haskins was killed.
Haskins’ death resembles another case of neglected parenting. This case highlights the importance of monitoring the mental health of our children.
Mental health issues can push a person over the edge in no time.
