A 10-YEAR-OLD COMMITS SUICIDE AFTER ALLEGED BULLYING INCIDENT CAUGHT ON CAMERA
Colorado parents say their 10-year-old daughter committed suicide over video of a fight with an alleged bully. Ashawnty Davis was only in fifth grade.
At the end of October, she was involved in a fight at school. Her mother claims her daughter was confronting a bully.
They say it was her first fight and it was recorded by another student and posted on an app called Musical.ly.
The girl’s family believes she is a victim of “bullycide,” a term used after someone takes his or her own life because of bullying.
