Report: 10-Year-Old Girl Kills Herself After Video of Her In A Fight Was Posted Online

A 10-year-old girl in Aurora, Colorado sadly committed suicide reportedly after a video of a fight she had with a bully at school was online. 

The parents of Ashawnty Davis believe their precious daughter was a victim of “bullycide,” a term coined to describe situations where a suicide occurs because of bullying. 

The little girl decided she no longer wanted to live after classmates teased and harassed her to great lengths once the video reportedly hit the internet.

According to her parents, the fifth-grader at Sunrise Elementary School (Aurora, Colorado) wanted to be a future basketball star in the WNBA, but that dream was cut short after Ashawnty got into a fight in late October on school Property. 

“She got into her first ever fight. It was recorded by a student and sent to an app called,” her father Anthony Davis told KDVR.

The video shows Ashawnty matching up against a bigger classmate as they fought it out in front of the school while other kids watched.  

Ashawnty’s mother Latoshia Harris, says the incident occurred because her daughter was tired of allegedly being bullied by the other girl. 

“I saw my daughter was scared,” she added. “She was devastated when she found out that it had made it to”

Once the kids school found out about the video online, the teasing became too much for Ashawnty to handle, her parents said.

“My daughter came home two weeks later and hanged herself in the closet,” Latoshia Harris said.

Once Ashawty was found, she was rushed to Children’s Hospital, where she was on life support for about two weeks before succumbing to her injuries Wednesday morning. 

“It’s just devastating. We have to stop it and we have to stop it within our kids,” Latoshia said.

The Cherry Creek School District, of which Sunrise Elementary School is a part of, said Ashawnty’s death is “a heartbreaking loss” for the community.

“We do not tolerate bullying of any kind in our schools and we have a comprehensive bullying prevention program in place at all of our schools,” the district said in a statement to Fox 31 Denver. “We were made aware of that video when a media outlet approached us with it. We took immediate action in response, turning the video over to police and addressing the matter with students.”

We extend our thoughts and prayers to the family of Ashawnty Davis. Way too young to no longer be with us.
