Many of my family and friends know that I deal with my own mental illness. I won’t get into detail because this post isn’t about me. It’s about a 12 year old little girl.
Her Name was Katelyn Nichole Davis
According to the Northwest Georgia News, Katelyn committed suicide by hanging and streamed it live on the internet for people to see. She was only 12 years old.
Reports have mentioned that Katelyn as on antidepressants and was possibly dealing with abuse from her step father. Those claims, at the time of this writing, have not been confirmed.
Actions of this nature appear be to happening more often. People will live stream intense and even suicidal instances.
The video does exist of her actually going through with it. Due to obvious reasons, I will not post a link to it here. If you choose to look around for it, that’s up to you. Just be warned it really is a 12 year old child taking her life and the image will stick with you.
Suicide Takes Another Baby
Not that suicide is ever alright, but it is much more tragic when the victim is so young.
When things like this happen, it makes us all think that we should be paying more attention. Sometimes a cry for help never comes. The only time you see the problem is after the fact.
I sincerely hope, where ever she is now, that she finds the peace she longed for. Rest in Peace, little girl.
You can still view her Instagram profile if you feel inclined to do so.
