The 15-year-old La Grande boy who hanged himself two weeks ago after complaining of bullying died early Sunday afternoon at Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Jadin Bell was taken to the Portland hospital Jan. 19 after he hanged himself on a play structure at Central Elementary School in La Grande. His family made the difficult decision more than a week ago to take him off life support after tests showed no brain activity.
