The mother of a recent Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School graduate said her daughter committed suicide last weekend.
Sydney Aiello, 19, was close friends with Meadow Pollack, one of the 17 students killed when a gunman opened fire inside the Parkland, Florida school last year. Aiello’s mother said that her daughter suffered with “survivor’s guilt” and had recently been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Aiello also struggled to attend college classes since she was scared to be in a classroom. She said her daughter was sad, but never asked for help before killing herself.
