Sarah Moravec, a Standley Lake High School senior, says she picked on 17-year-old Austin Sigg nearly every day for having a high-pitched voice.

"I picked on him a lot," Moravec said. "Austin was just different. So, why not pick on the different people? But then again, I was bullied whenever I was younger."

The Standley Lake senior said Sigg often wore dark clothing and hung out at the back of the cafeteria with others.

"We didn't even think he was somebody our age," Moravec said. "We thought it was some 45-year-old pervert or something like that."

Rachel Bradley said she also picked on Sigg at school.

"He was different," Bradley said. "A lot of people picked on him. He had a really high voice."

Sigg attended Standley Lake High School from Aug. 2009 through July 2012. He also attended WarrenTech, a trade school, from Aug. 2011 until June 2012.

Sigg dropped out of both schools and transferred to a GED program.
