A FIFTEEN-year-old schoolgirl who hanged herself in woods near her home in Chadlington, may not have intended to kill herself, an inquest has heard.

Jenny Fry, a pupil at Chipping Norton School, was found by her mother, Debra Fry, hanging from a tree at Brooke Woods at 4.20pm on June 11.

The inquest at Oxfordshire Coroners' Court on November 19 heard how Jenny, who was described as intelligent, non-judgemental and organised had not been seen since leaving for school on the morning of Thursday, June 11, but did not get on her bus to school.

A police statement said at 9.36am and 10.05am she sent a text to a friend about her intentions and stating where she was. Her friend did not have her phone with her that day.

Mrs Fry was alerted in the afternoon that her daughter was not in school and went looking for the teen.

Jenny was found with a note in her diary and there was another saved on her laptop.

It read: "I have no hope for humanity; we are destroying this beautiful earth as we speak. I am insignificant, an insignificant number on someone's screen and so is my life, a tiny blip in the whole existence of the universe. And I find it hard to be hopeful when I can hardly enjoy anything any more."

The inquest also heard Jenny previously spoke of suicidal thoughts in November 2014 following the death of close friend Tom Boomer in March last year.

The family said her death followed a difficult time at school and claimed this was due to poor health caused by a condition called electro-hypersensitivity (EHS).

They said wireless technology affected Jenny's health and made her tired and unable to concentrate. She would take her schoolwork to a different classroom, which resulted in multiple detentions at school. On one occasion she got three detentions in one day.

Mrs Fry said: "I do not think she intended to kill herself – I think she was frustrated with school. She would not see a doctor but was seeing a counsellor at school who was helping her. She had not made any suggestions she was thinking of suicide and I believe it was a cry for help.

"I feel Jenny was making a stand for her generation and sent the message to a friend to find her or alert police. Unfortunately her friend did not have her phone that day."

Oxfordshire coroner Darren Salter concluded a narrative verdict at the inquest saying he was unable to rule out it was a possible cry for help because of the texts she sent to a friend.

He did not include the factors relating to EHS as he said there were no medical notes to prove Jenny did suffer from it.

He concluded: "It can't be demonstrated to the required standard of proof that it is certain she intended to take her own life."

The family is now campaigning to raise awareness of EHS and how wireless technology can affect health. They also hope to get the use of wireless technology in schools changed.
