Suicide rate already up from last year

The number of suicides in the last 6 months already have outpaced the number in all of last year in Lee County. Lee County Coroner Jesse Partington cannot point to a driver behind people taking their own lives more frequently this year than in recent years. But he says the community must be willing to talk about suicide in order to prevent it.
