Jan. 20, Tennessee teen Phillip Parker, 14, was also found dead, the victim of an

And on Jan. 11, Eric James Borges, an intern at The Trevor Project also took his life --
EricJames, as he was known, was repeatedly bullied, tormented and terrorized for most
of his life. His religious-extremist parents chose not to attend his memorial.
