Sometimes there is nothing more painful than the grip of love gone bad. Shayna McEntire was the last child that anyone thought would commit suicide. She had good grades, was a great athlete and on her way to college.
But none of that mattered to Shayna after she broke up with her boyfriend. The high school junior’s death was ruled a suicide after she walked into traffic and killed herself.
Shayna was pronounced dead shortly after the incident, when she was taken to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center in Arizona.
“Subsequent investigation revealed she had jumped in front of a vehicle that was westbound on Elliot in an effort to end her life,” Gilbert Police spokesman Sgt. William Balafas said in a report.
Gilbert High Principal J. Charles Santa Cruz reached out to the students at Shayna’s school to discuss the tragic incident.
“We are all saddened by this loss,” he said.
The family is working to pay for the funeral and has set up the Shayna McEntire Memorial Account at Wells Fargo Bank.
“She was just upset,” Shannon McEntire, Shayna’s mother. “I don’t think she expected what happened.”
