Jordan Binion's Family Says Bullying to Blame for Teen's Suicide

Not much is known about Jordan Binion's suicide. Not how he did it nor why he was pushed to do it. But what authorities do know is that the Graham Kapowsin High School senior who killed himself just four days after turning 17 seemed normal enough to family and friends.

He was an avid snowboarder, camper and fly fisherman. He liked playing the guitar and watching sports. And based on the video below, he had friends who liked him too.

But somewhere along the way, something happened to Jordan that made him feel helpless enough to take his own life in his family's house. And his friends say that something was bullying.

According to KOMO, Jordan was tormented by some students at school and recently got into a fight off-campus. Afterwards, a text message making fun of him allegedly made the rounds among students at school.

Older brother Tony told KOMO that Jordan did a good job of keeping his feelings to himself. "I heard verbal abuse daily at school and, you know what - my brother never really never brought it up to us, you know," he says.

The school district says it never heard complaints from Jordan or his parents. Its currently conducting its own investigation to see what happened.

Below, check out the blooper reel from what looks like a class project. Jordan is behind the camera for most of it, but he makes an appearance in a Cougs sweatshirt a little over half-way through. Video is mildly NSFW, because Jordan and his friends, like a lot of teenagers, drop a few "f-bombs" along the way.
