The thugs would not leave Rosalie Avila, 13, alone.
He inexorably called the California teen ugly & # 39; and they made fun of their orthopedic devices, his father Freddie Avila told ABC6. A bully posted a video on Rosalie's social networks sitting alone at school while being teased, NBC News reported.
Rosalie cut her wrists due to intimidation, she said, and kept a list of people who bullied her in a newspaper.
That same newspaper would detail the adolescent's last words to her parents, and to the world.
"I'm sorry, mom and dad, I love you," he wrote in his diary, according to CBS Los Angeles. "I'm sorry, mom, you're going to find me like that."
The 13-year-old girl hanged herself in her room on Tuesday, according to ABC6.
She was rushed to a local hospital, where her parents kept her on life support until Monday night so her organs could be donated, NBC News wrote.
But while they endure the loss of their daughter, Rosalie's family says that they are now victims of online harassment.
According to CBS Los Angeles, the family has received hate messages about their daughter even after hanging herself. That includes an image of Rosalie telling her mother not to put her in a bed, but to put her in an open grave.
Charlene Avila, his mother, told NBC that the message came from someone related to one of his daughter's thugs.
That experience has only emboldened the parents of the teenager, who handed the newspaper to the police.
"Now I know what my daughter is up against," Charlene Avila told NBC News. "Something must be done".
The Joint Unified School District of Yucaipa-Calimesa issued a statement saying it was "sad" about Rosalie's death.
"The District Board of Education, its administration and the staff are all united in the care and concern for those affected by this tragedy," he said. "Crisis counselors have been deployed on the school site, and are available to any student who feels they need to talk to someone while struggling to cope with their feelings.
" We will continue to support our teachers and staff as they process this event at time they support the students they work with. "
But Rosalie's parents said more can be done.
" I did everything I had to do as a parent, and these people did not respond, because those bullies are still at school, "said Freddie Avila." They're still there, and my daughter is gone. "
They also do not want to forget the good memories with their daughter: watching movies and drinking hot chocolate, heading to the beach and seeing that smile unforgettable that "would illuminate the entire room with his laughter," they wrote on a GoFundMe page.
"My daughter is a victim of bullying," they wrote. "… She was the girl of dad and the princess from mom She wanted to be a lawyer and wanted to help the world to be a better place.
"The world lost a treasure".
