The Principal at Whittier Elementary school says D'ashia was well loved at the school, an honor student who was fun to be around. Just last month Taquairis Mcdonald committed suicide. The Principal says he was well loved and always had a smile on his face. Many in the community are wondering if the choking game is to blame for these deaths.
