He was just a few hours away from getting his diploma from Boston College.
His family, who was in town from New Jersey, never saw him graduate.
Urtula’s suicide, the Suffolk County District Attorney said, was not entirely his fault.
Urutula’s girlfriend, Inyoung You, has been indicted for involuntary manslaughter. She is being charged in connection with Urutula’s suicide.
You, officials said, went back to South Korea after Urtula’s death. The district attorney is asking her to come back to the U.S. voluntarily. And if she doesn’t, they plan to extradite her.
In Massachusetts, a bill is pending before state legislators which would make the encouragement or assistance of suicide punishable for up to five years in prison.
