Medical Examiner Rules Death Of 13-Year-Old Newtown Boy Suicide

The death of 13-year-old Cayman Naib has been ruled a suicide by Delaware County Medical Examiner Dr. Frederic Hellman.

The Shipley School eighth-grader, whose body was discovered Sunday afternoon in a creek on the perimeter of his family’s sprawling Newtown Township property, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

On his official findings sheet, Hellman listed the date of death as March 4, the day Naib disappeared from his Harrison Drive home after receiving an email from school about a past-due assignment.

“No words can adequately express the Naib family’s pain and sadness at this news,” read a Monday afternoon post on the “Celebrating Cayman” Facebook page. “The family has asked that the community respect their need for privacy at this very difficult time as they mourn the loss of their son and support their daughter.”
