Adamek hung himself a day after Sparkman High principal Michael Campbell appeared on a local news broadcast and warned of the "pretty serious consequences” of his stunt.
“Public lewdness and court consequences outside of school with the legal system, as well as the school consequences that the school system has set up," Campbell told WHNT.
It’s unclear what school discipline or other consequences Adamek faced. The station has since removed the report from its website, but a video of the broadcast was posted to YouTube.
Adamek’s mother, Angela, spoke at a memorial for her son, according to ryot.org, and offered this message to other teens:
“Remember to smile, don’t be afraid to do something goofy and remember the consequences of those actions, ask for help when you need it, ask for help if you think your friends need it if you don’t know what to do, be quirky, be happy, be smart.”
