CAVEAT: Out of respect for Katelyn Nichole Davis and her family, we have refused to publish the video and any links as to how a 12 year took her life. Thanks for your understanding but here is her story.
An alarming video is spreading around the Internet of a 12-year-old who hung herself on Livestream.
There is no easy way to write a story like this, but we’re doing to educate people.
Just last week, an 85 years old woman hung herself in Kano State. 85 fa!
Katelyn goes by a nickname, Dolly. She was 12 and began writing a diary of her life.
Dolly’s real name is Katelyn Nichole Davis, a 12-year-old from Polk County, Georgia.
Katelyn had an online diary that she was writing in for the last few weeks of her life.
The original diary has been removed from the Internet, but the screenshots below show each of her entries.
The diary was titled “Diary of a Broken Doll.”
Her first entry was written on December 21, and it gives some basic details about the young girl.
Katelyn writes that she does not like the holidays, but not because she hates “Jesus or anything.”
She goes on to say that she is just not a “happy or positive person.”
Katelyn’s next entry was on December 22.
In the entry, Katelyn talks about attempting to overdose due to not being able to handle the pain of being away from Ben Drowned.
Ben Drowned is an online Nintendo game. In other words, she was obsessed with a fictional entity.
In her third entry on December 23, Katelyn goes into detail about her home life.
She begins the entry by writing “I finally found my love,” referencing her “relationship” with Ben Drowned.
Katelyn claims that she lives in a poor environment.
She says she does not even have a bed, instead, it is just an “old rusty mattress” laying on a cold floor.
She writes that the floor is always wet, due to a leaky pipe that is connected to her room.
In her fourth entry, the diary takes a very dark turn as she says was abused by her stepfather.
She says that he hit her so hard in the arm with his belt that her arm began to bleed.
She goes on to say that, “he tried to rape me.”
In a disturbing piece of information, Katelyn states that he once told her to hang herself.
She writes that he would call her a “worthless whore.”
Katelyn claims she is not the only victim of her stepfather, stating that he also touched her siblings.
This fourth diary entry shows a scenario where Child Protection Services should have become involved.
Katelyn’s next and last diary entry was made just 12-hours after her fourth one.
The last post is much worse than the previous ones. The picture included shows self-inflicted cuts on her thighs.
In the entry, Katelyn says that she “enjoys” her depression.
She also admits that she is on medication for her depression but “it doesn’t work too well,” which is surprisingly common.
Three days after her last diary entry, on December 30, Katelyn’s body was found.
The girl was said to have been found outside her home with self-inflicted wounds.
She was rushed to a nearby hospital where emergency workers were unable to revive her.
Katelyn livestreamed her entire suicide through live.me. She used the screen name “ITZDolly.”
The full video is 42 minutes and 52 seconds long.
The first twenty minutes or so are of Katelyn setting everything up to perform the suicide.
Katelyn apologizes to multiple people in the video as she is setting up.
At 21:24 you hear Katelyn’s broken and fragile last word, which is simply “Goodbye”.
She kicked the bucket she was standing on out from under her.
Roughly 28 minutes into the video you begin to hear people calling out for Katelyn.
You hear “Katelyn” and “Katie” called out multiple times.
The voices sound as if they are getting closer, at one point sounding close enough to where they possibly almost discovered her body on camera.
At 29 minutes in, Katelyn’s phone begins to ring over and over.
The phone continues to go off multiple times before hearing her name called out one last time at the end of the video.
