Gianlukas Lukas Wiki – Gianlukas Lukas Biography

Police are investigating the possible suicide of a 10-year-old boy from Westchester, New York, who was bullied so badly he didn’t want to go to school for several months. Gianlukas ‘Lukas’ Illescas died of suffocation May 25 after what his father said were months of taunting that went completely ignored by Hillcrest Elementary officials. Christian Illescas, Lukas’ father, appeared with other distraught parents Tuesday to call out the school district for not listening to his concerns.

Didn’t have time? Five minutes,’ the grieving father asked, sharing that he had asked for help. I don’t know how you can sleep. I do not know how. Relatives said that before Lukas’ death, the 10-year-old boy had begged to be allowed to miss school, they told local media. In a post shared Tuesday, the chief of the Peekskill Police Department confirmed that they are investigating the “tragic” death of the boy. “This tragic event is still being actively investigated and no definitive conclusions have been reached,” chief Leo Dylweski shared.

Please continue to support the Illescas family during this difficult time,” he wrote. The post did not stop dozens of angry parents and family members from showing up at Tuesday’s school board meeting to demand answers. At one point, Lukas’s father climbed onto the podium and yelled at school board members as he flashed a picture of his son on his phone. ‘Look! Look!’ the father passionately pleaded with the board members.
