Why didn't Todd go to Nolan and tell him why Neil comitted suicide?


Given that Todd realizes why Neil took his life, he should have gone to Nolan and told him that Neil's father was to blame for his son's death. This probably would have won over the Perry family's request for an investigation into Neil's death when the Perry parents were the ones at fault, Mr Perry for putting unfair pressure on his son and Neil's mother doing nothing to help her son. In that way Mr Keating probably would not be fired as well

Most likely because he knew that they wouldn't have believed him.
