Masika says Jaheem was happy the weekend before his death but showed signs of depression when he had to go back to school. "He just started dragging. He [didn't] want to eat. He [didn't] want to brush his hair. He [didn't] want to brush his teeth," she says. "That was weird to me. I thought he was sick."
Masika says Jaheem left no note. "He just did it," she says. "Now I won't have my boy child. That was my only boy child."
