15 year-old Amanda Todd was recently found dead, from an apparent suicide, by British Columbia, Canada police authorities. Todd’s death comes a mere matter of weeks after she had posted a video on YouTube desperately seeking help in battling her drug and alcohol problems, which she said were induced by teen bullying.
The 9-minute YouTube video shows a silent Todd holding up notes detailing her long and difficult experience with bullying. In the video, Todd says that she was persuaded by someone on the internet to expose herself on a webcam. A picture of the encounter was then used to harass her on both social media and in school.
Todd also explained on her video how she was constantly taunted by her schoolmates, despite switching schools many times. She says that bullies at school even physically attacked and assaulted her.
Local police authorities continue to investigate the tragic wrongful death incident at this time.
Bullying is a far too prevalent occurrence in today’s society, and often has devastating consequences on victims like Amanda Todd, including wrongful death.
