Poulos' death has the Stillwater community focusing on bullying in schools and suicide prevention. The school district and his parents both say they don't have any evidence that the teen was being bullied.

Many of Poulos' classmates say otherwise.

The Universal Human and Civil Rights Union is petitioning for the Oklahoma Department of Human Services and the Oklahoma Child Death Review Board to investigate Poulos' suicide.
