    Hannah was a "popular and bright" pupil at Mascalls Secondary in Paddock Wood, Kent.

    She joined the cult based around a genre of rock music with sad themes and emotional lyrics, hence emo. Fans wear black and have dark hair. Many self harm and Hannah was among them.

    She told worried dad Raymond it was part of an initiation and promised "never to do it again".

    Her headteacher Vanessa Everett told the inquest other emo pupils had self-harmed.

    She said it was "probable" Hannah was motivated by the failed suicide of another girl pupil who was also an emo fan. Hannah’s mum Heather said her daughter, who used the name "Living Disaster" on the Bebo website, became "addicted" to the internet before she died.

    Martial artist Mr Bond said he knew his karate fan daughter was in contact with emos worldwide. He said: "She was always very protective of the screen."

    She was obsessed with US emo band My Chemical Romance whose 2006 No 1 album The Black Parade features a tragic storyline about a man dying of cancer.

    On the night Hannah died she argued with her mum after she was barred from staying at a friend’s.

    She told her: "I feel like killing myself". An hour later her parents found her hanging by a tie from her bunk bed at their home in East Peckham, Kent.

    Coroner Roger Sykes said Hannah, who had a sister Jessica, 14, had become an emo "aficionado".

    He told the Maidstone inquest that the emo overtones to her death were disturbing.

    He added: "It is a terrible and tragic explanation.

    "It is not glamorous, just simply a tragic loss of such a young life."

    Verdict: Suicide.

    Tragic, what else can be said.

    I'm just glad my obsessions have nothing to do with dying.

    Why is it always the ones that look reasonably hot that commit suicide?! And why is hanging currently the "in" way of suicide in the UK? I know we're the only developed country that still uses it for the death penalty, but there's been what, 10 cases this year so far...

    Silly children...

    Emo didn't kill her. She killed herself, and probably would have eventually even if Emo didn't exist.
    I'm not supporting Emo but its a stupid scapegoat.

    Lets blame marilyn manson next time.

    And hanging yourself with a tie? damn...thats sooo scene.

    her parents wouldn't let her go over to her friends house, so she killed herself. Thats quite an extreme reaction, i guess she showed them [​IMG]

    Its sad how easily influenced teens are on this matter (epically with all the hype from popular scenes like 'emo'), sure its a natural occurrence to be depressed as a teen but when no-one is shedding light on the fact that everyone goes through this difficult time in there life, i assume growing up and being a teen would be alot harder to come to terms with these days.

    I know this probably doesn't get said enough, but to any emo teens reading this, its a faze, everyone goes through it, not to invalidate your feelings by saying you not special and your problems are the same as everyone else's, but everyone can relate to this state of mind in some form.
    Making a scene out of teenage depression is quite odd, marketing and profiteering from this is even worse. (eg. My Chemical Romance)
