Real Life Story: David Molak 2000-2016

<< All Resources

David Molak, a sophomore at Alamo Heights High School in Texas, a fitness enthusiast, Spurs fan, and an Eagle Scout, hung himself in his family’s back yard in January, 2016. His 24-year-old brother Cliff Molak, posted following the suicide: “In today’s age, bullies don’t push you into lockers, they don’t tell their victims to meet them behind the school’s dumpster after class. They cower behind user names and fake profiles from miles away constantly berating and abusing good, innocent people.”

David had been the target of ongoing bullying at Alamo Heights High School. He received a series of text messages from between six and 10 bullies, with comments that put him down and insulted him. According to his brother, the bullies went after him for no reason. “He did not do anything to them besides having an attractive girlfriend. … They crushed his spirit and took away his motivation to do anything,”. Cliff also wrote the following strong words: “I saw the pain in David’s eyes three nights ago as he was added to a group text only to be made fun of and kicked out two minutes later. I spoke to him right after to comfort him and he didn’t even hear me. He stared off into the distance for what seemed like an hour. I could feel his pain. It was a tangible pain. He didn’t even have the contact information of any of the eight members who started the group text. It is important to note David had been enduring this sort of abuse for a very long time.”
