This recent suicide is clear evidence that Diamond Ranch Academy is NOT the place it says it is. Survivors have stated several aligations of physical and psychological abuse and neglect. The boy likely felt betrayed as DRA's contract requires parents sign away 51% of their custudy to Diamond Ranch! The sickest thing they do is put up a fancy website with fraudulent information to encourage parents to unintentionally abandon their child and allow them to be abused, raped, and even killed!!!
Utah DHS has reported liscensing violations against the facility but has taken no actions. First action needed to be taken is a Cease and Desist order on their false advertising and illegal contracts!
To DHS and Hurricane Police Dept.: If DRA will not Cease and Desist, it's time to indicte these people running the facility.

_Update! the football field that they advertise is only on their newest campus and can only be seen via street view. However, the field is never used according to a new survivor report as the new campus is almost like a lock-down facility.
