Aaron Dugmore’s parents say the young boy was found dead in his bedroom after months of relentless bullying by ethnic minorities at his school. Dugmore’s school was comprised of mostly ‘ethnic’ kids, according to mother Kellie Marie Dugmore and stepdad Paul Jones, which was the reason their young son was harassed. Kellie Marie Dugmore says she complained to the school about the bullying, but nothing was done.
On one occasion, an Asian boy allegedly drew a plastic knife on Dugmore, then proceeded to tell him, “Next time, it will be a real one.”
“We are not racist people. Aaron got on with all the children at his last school, and for him to have been bullied because of the colour of his skin makes me feel sick to my stomach.”
Aaron Dugmore transferred to Erdington Hall primary in Birmingham last September after his family moved to the area.
Paul said: “He became argumentative with his brothers and sisters, which wasn’t like him at all. Eventually he told us that he was being bullied by a group of Asian children at school and had to hide from them in the playground at lunchtime. He said one kid even said to him, ‘My dad says all the white people should be dead’.”
Kellie Marie claims that when she went to the school for help, she was told, ‘You didn’t have to come to this school, you chose to come here’.”
