A Chinese teen sold as an infant has died by suicide after a social media search reunited him with his birth parents, who then abandoned him again, according to reports.

Liu Xuezhou, a 17-year-old aspiring teacher, died of an overdose of antidepressants early Monday at a hospital in Sanya, China, the Washington Post reported, citing Chinese media reports.

Prior to taking his life, he claimed in a lengthy note on Weibo — China’s version of Twitter — that he had been “abandoned twice” by his biological mother and father, the South China Morning Post reported.

He had been working as a teacher when he launched a viral quest to find his birth parents, who, according to his adoptive family, sold him as a baby for $4,200, most of which went to a middleman, the Washington Post reported.

Liu, however, spent most of his life being passed around among his adoptive relatives after a home explosion when he was 4 years old killed his new parents, local media reported.
