Police are investigating the death of a six-year-old girl, Kendrea Johnson who is strongly considered to have committed suicide.

Kendrea
Johnson was found dead at her foster home in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota
on Saturday, December 27 with a rope around her neck.
Police
said that the cause of the teenager’s death is yet to be determined yet
but records have emerged suggesting that it might be suicide. According
to The Star Tribune records have emerged which show that Kendrea in June and was ruled as having “homicidal and suicidal thoughts” and was placed on treatment.
Records state that the child “showed
severe guilt, as she does not feel lovable or acceptable and reports
feeling guilty and responsible for out-of-home placement
,” the newspaper reports.
Kendrea
according to reports was put in foster care in 2013 after a child
protection unit accused her mother of drug abuse and failing to keep to
an agreed protection plan.
The youngster’s
behavior reportedly changed in care and one foster mother said the child
had wanted to end her life by jumping out of a window and drew pictures
at school of a child hanging from a rope.
The
girl’s father however informed police that everything seemed fine when
he had checked in on her at 8pm ten minutes before he found her hanged
in the bedroom. Her grandmother Mary Lee Broadus, told The Star Tribune that she believed Kendrea did not take her own life.
