On December 21, 2016, high school junior and Dairy Queen employee Kenneth Suttner, 17, of Glasgow, Missouri, put a gun to his head and squeezed the trigger. Suttner had been bullied at both work and school, and his death created a paradigm shift when a supervisor was criminally charged with involuntary felony manslaughter after a coroner’s jury deemed her responsible for causing the bullied worker to take his own life.

The jury also found that the employer of record and the school the deceased attended contributed to the tragedy.
