Masika says Jaheem Herrera showed signs of depression the week of his death.
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."
