When the student was caught using her cell phone during a German-language exam, her teacher told her, “you shouldn't be cheating!"
17-year-old Omotayo Adeoye quickly apologized, “I'm sorry. I'm sorry!" The teacher was said to respond with, “that's not a sincere apology!"
The New York Post reports The High School for Math, Science, and Engineering at City College student asked if she could use the bathroom.
She wrote a suicide note saying she wanted, "to go away forever on the bottom of the river."
That’s exactly what she did.
The New York Times reports Adeoye walked to the Hudson River and jumped in. Her father confirmed the girl couldn’t swim, and fishermen in the area say it looked like she was forcing herself underwater.
"She was just crying, crying all the time," one said.
As of Saturday night, Omotayo's body has not been recovered. Authorities at the elite Harlem, New York school and police are continuing to investigate.
