Katelyn Nicole Davis: Live Suicide

The 12-year-old, who lived and went to school in Cedartown, Georgia, almost 70 miles west of Atlanta, had claimed she was sexually abused by a male family member. On a blog post, Davis wrote that the abuser was her stepfather.

Law enforcement authorities discovered the video the night of Davis’ death. She was soon found in front of her home, hanging from a tree, according to FOX Atlanta. Davis was immediately taken to Polk Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead. Davis would have turned 13 in February.

The whole 42-minute video footage was posted under her username ITZ Dolly. At the beginning of the video, for 21 minutes, Davis is seen setting up her suicide, talking about her life. Davis then makes a move to hang herself by removing the bucket she has been standing on. About ten minutes after the suicide, voices are heard calling out to Davis.

Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd insisted the public to stop sharing the video online. “We want it down as much as anyone for the family and it may be harmful to other kids. We contacted some of the sites.” Dodd said. “They asked if they had to take it down and by law they don’t. But it’s just the common decent thing to do in my opinion.”

Davis had made several blog posts prior to her suicide. In these posts, she talked about her fights with her drug-dependent mother Tammy Rogers.

Her blog, “Diary of a Broken Girl,” stated that her stepfather did a lot of things to her, as per The Daily Haze.

“My stepfather did a lot of things to me, that it seems I cannot forgive him for. He physically, mentally and verbally abused me,” Davis wrote in the blog. “He struck me with his leather belt that has silver studs, making sure that the studs hit me.”

In addition, she stated that the stepfather once hit her hard with a belt. As a result, her arm started to bleed. According to her, her stepfather also tried to rape her.
