RACINE — Jeana Monroe says the “Choking Game” took the life of her 15-year-old son, and now, she’s making it her mission to warn other parents and kids, so they know what she didn’t.
On Tuesday, December 4th, high school sophomore R.J. Monroe was found dead — hanging with a belt around his neck. Monroe’s mother says his death was the result of the “Choking Game.”
“He wasn’t depressed. He didn’t want to die. It’s just a tragedy,” Jeana Monroe said.
Jeana Monroe says her son was a happy-go-lucky kid and she knows this was not a suicide. She says she knew right away, when there was no note left behind.
It was the “Choking Game” that had deadly consequences for her son, and now, Jeana Monroe is on a mission to make sure what happened to her family doesn’t happen to anyone else.
