Girl streams her suicide on FACEBOOK...
THE SUN --
A HORRIFIC video of a 12-year-old girl hanging herself after alleging she was abused by a relative has been streamed across the internet on Facebook Live.
The video has gone viral and is now being replayed on other websites – and cops say they are powerless to stop it.
In the video, Katelyn Nicole Davis claims she was physically and sexually abused by a relative then lets the camera roll as she hangs herself in her back garden.
Katelyn, a student at Cedartown Middle School in Polk County, Georgia, US, broadcast it over Facebook Live on December 30 but it was later removed from her page.
According to reports, the 20-minute video was filmed in her backyard and played out as a woman’s voice was heard calling her name in the distance.
Polk County police department has been inundated with requests from people as far away as Britain to get versions being shared online taken down.
Police chief Kenny Dodd told Fox5 that he was first contacted about the video by an officer from California who saw it on the night of her death.
He said Polk County cops had contacted several sites and urged them to take it down, but they had refused.
