Florida: An American girl killed herself after miscreants published a nude video of her showering on Snapchat. The 15-year-old Tovonna Holton was found dead in her house in Florida.
The teen was in trauma after her friends filmed her in the shower and posted the clip on social media app Snapchat.
The deceased’s mother said her daughter had stolen her gun from her handbag before locking herself in the bathroom and shooting herself.
“The bathroom light was off so I tried to get in and I looked down and I saw the pool of blood. I tried to apply the pressure, the pressure to her head. I tried to save her,” the victim’s mother said.
The devastated mother also spoke about the last conversation she had with her daughter: “Tovonna would say, ‘Mommy, I owe them; I owe them.’ I said, ‘What do you mean you owe them?’ I couldn’t understand what was wrong.”
That was when Tovonna’s aunt started searching on Facebook for clues and discovered a friend had shared the nude images of Tovonna without her permission.
Police are currently investigating the case though so far nothing has pointed in the direction of bullying as they cannot tell whether Tovanna consented to the recording or not.
