The family of a girl who committed suicide in Danbury over the weekend is speaking out.  Hailey Nailor's family says she had more friends and support than she knew. 

The 16-year old recorded a Snapchat video from the roof of the Danbury Mall parking garage on Saturday before jumping to her death. 

Nailor was the subject of three silver alerts, which were issued when she ran away from home and cancelled when she returned.  The Connecticut Post reports that the teen was hospitalized on Friday after threatening to harm herself, but she was release the same day.  She previously was hospitalized two dozen times over mental health issues and attended long-term residential programs, and was on probation for stealing her parents' car and debit card. 

Nailor's father, Kevin, said in the published report that he does not believe bullying played a role in his daughter’s death.  School officials are investigating what they described as disturbing social media comments posted immediately after the suicide.
