A page one Sunday Globe article shares details about the day before Roee Grutman took his life and, once again, revisits the theory that academic stress was a contributing factor.

His family, who moved here 14 years ago from Israel, believes the stress of an overwhelming course load and an American obsession with elite universities contributed to his death, though they recognize there could have been additional — still unknown — factors.

In addition, his mom Galit Grutman posted this comment Friday on Village 14…

thank you all for understanding and for your support. We need to do something right away so there will not be a 4th case. We are in an emergency situation now and need to respond and act fast. You are right – Roee was an exceptional young man and although we may never know what happened, we need to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.
