A tormented Georgia girl livestreamed her suicide in her front yard ― and local police say they are powerless to take down the disturbing, now-viral footage.
Katelyn Nicole Davis, 12, filmed her hanging outside her Cedartown home on Dec. 30 after claiming that she had been sexually abused by a family member.
She spent the first half of the 42-minute video talking about the assault before saying “goodbye.”
Katelyn then kicked out a bucket that she’d been standing on.
But the video doesn’t end after Davis takes her last breath.
Instead, it continues ― showing her dangling from a tree for about 20 minutes while a woman shouts her name off camera, according to the Daily Mail.
Cops didn’t arrive in time to save her, and she was pronounced dead at the Polk Medical Center.
Since her death, the troubling video of her suicide has been seen worldwide.
Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd said he received his first call from a cop in California who saw the video.
Since then, his office has been inundated with calls to get involved.
But Dodd said he has no jurisdiction over social media and could only ask sites to remove the video.
“We want it down as much as anyone for the family and it may be harmful to other kids,” he told Fox 5 Atlanta. “We contacted some of the sites. They asked if they had to take it down and by law, they don’t.”
He added, “But it’s just the common, decent thing to do in my opinion.”
The video was removed from Katelyn’s personal Facebook page, but is still circulating on other sites.
Facebook’s “Community Standards” has a special section devoted to graphic content.
“We remove graphic images when they are shared for sadistic pleasure or to celebrate or glorify violence,” the policy states.
Just days before killing herself, Davis detailed the claims of abuse on her blog, where she went by the name ITZ Dolly.
She claimed that she was beaten with a studded belt and that a male relative “tried to rape” her, according to Coosa Valley News.
Davis also said she had been researching different ways to end her life.
SEOUL: Dear Cloud's vocalist Nine9 revealed the late Jonghyun’s painful suicide note on his Instagram on Tuesday.
Following is the unofficial English translation of Jonghyun‘s suicide note in Korean:
I was broken from the inside.
The depression slowly chipped me away, finally devouring me.
I could not beat the negativity.
I hated myself. Even though I tried so hard demanding my memories that kept getting cut off to ‘wake up,’ all I got in return was silence.
I‘d rather stop if I cannot breathe.
I asked who could be responsible for me.
You’re the only one.
I felt utterly alone.
It is easy to say “I‘m going to end it.”
It is very difficult to actually go through with it.
I’ve been struggling through the difficulty.
I told myself that it‘s just me wanting to run away from everything.
It’s true. I really did want to run away.
I asked, “Who‘s there?” It’s me. It‘s me again. And it’s me the third time.
I asked, “Why do I keep on losing my memory?” They said it‘s due to my personality. I see. It’s all my fault.
I wanted someone to notice (my suffering), but no one knew. Of course, they wouldn‘t. They never met me before.
I asked why people live. Just. Just. They live “just because.”
If I ask why people died, they would probably say they couldn’t bear it any longer.
Troubling thoughts flooded my head. I never got the chance to learn how to change dull pain into pure joy.
Pain is just pain.
I kept reprimanding myself not to do so.
Why? Why can‘t I even end my life with my own will?
I tried figuring out the reasons for my pain and suffering.
I already had the answer. I was in pain because of me. It’s all my fault that I carry so many imperfections.
Teacher, is this what you wanted to hear?
No. I didn‘t do anything wrong.
I used to think that it’s so easy for doctors to blame your personality for the suffering in their calm voice.
It surprises me how I am feeling this much pain. Those people, who have suffered worse than I, seem to go on living perfectly fine. Those weaker than I am live on as well. I guess not. Among the living, there is no one who is suffering worse and no one who is weaker.
The only answer I got back was “just live nevertheless.”
Asking the purpose of life more than one hundred times is not for me. It‘s for you.
I wanted to do it for me.
Please don’t say things you don't know.
How could you ask me to still look for reasons behind my pain? I told you multiple times why I‘m suffering. Do I need more reasons to be in pain? More dramatic details in my stories? More stories even?
I told you already. Were you absent-minded when I told you? Things you can bear and even come above do not leave scars.
It wasn’t my responsibility to go against the world.
It wasn‘t my path to become world-famous.
That’s why they say it‘s hard to go against the world and to become famous. Why did I choose this path? It’s quite funny now that I think about it.
It‘s a miracle that I endured through it all this time.
What more can I say. Just tell me “good job.”
You did great. Tell me I suffered enough.
Even though you can’t laugh right now, just don‘t send me off blaming me.
