Chilling footage shows 12-year-old Live streaming her own suicide
Posted on January 9, 2017
A 12-year-old girl from Georgia, United States had posted a live-streaming video of her suicidal act on Facebook at around daybreak last December 30.
The first half of the video is Katelyn Nichole Davis seen positioning the camera, measuring the rope she attaches to a tree and makes adjustments. During this section, the sun is shining and the ambient neighborhood noises of passing cars, birds and barking dogs can be heard in the background.
She then climbs on top of a bucket and fastens the noose around her neck. At 21:24, after taking several deep breaths and crying, Katelyn says an anguished “Goodbye” before stepping off the bucket. Now hanging by her neck, Katelyn’s arms and legs begin to jerk and kick for a short time.
After 10 minutes or so, you can hear Katelyn’s family calling for her and coming close to finding her on camera. The video ends as the sun disappears and Katelyn’s cell phone repeatedly rings.
Speculations arise as for why Katelyn decided to kill herself. Some of her reasons can be seen by checking out her online diary and Instagram account. According to her, she was already on medication for depression, had attempted end before, was a cutter, and was beaten by her stepfather who she also accused of trying to rape her.
