Bronx Teen Commits Suicide After Getting Caught Cheating on Test

By

Seventeen-year-old High School for Math, Science, and Engineering student Omotayo Adeoye drowned herself off the Hudson River Greenway, near West 163rd Street, after a teacher embarrassed her in front of her class when she was caught peeking at her cell phone during a German exam. She left behind a note scrawled across the test, as well as her ID, which she placed on a rock near the water. Adeoye's body has not yet been recovered, but her father told the police that she didn't know how to swim.
