Family Says Former Child Model Killed Herself Over Bullying

The family of a former child model, widely known as the face of an Australian hat brand, claims she killed herself because she couldn’t stand cyberbullying she faced anymore.

Amy “Dolly” Everett was 14 when she ended her life, according to the New York Post.

“Doll had the strength to do what she thought she had to do to escape the evil in this world,” her father, Tick Everett, wrote on Facebook. “However, unfortunately, Dolly will never know the great pain and emptiness left behind.”

The family shared a drawing by Dolly of a skinny figure that was bent over backwards with the words, “speak even if your voice shakes” in bold. It was completed before taking her own life on Jan. 3.

“This powerful message tells the dark, scary place our beautiful angel had traveled to,” the family said.

Former child model killed herself over bullying: family

A former child model, who was once the face of an iconic Australian hat brand, killed herself because she couldn’t take being hounded by cyber-bullies anymore, her family said.

Amy “Dolly” Everett, who was 8 when she starred in an ad campaign for Akubra, was 14 when she committed suicide, her family announced Sunday.

“Doll had the strength to do what she thought she had to do to escape the evil in this world,” her father, Tick Everett, wrote on Facebook. “However, unfortunately, Dolly will never know the great pain and emptiness left behind.”

The grieving dad then invited the people who’d tormented his “precious little angel” to a service in her honor so that they could “witness the complete devastation” they created.

He then urged people to stop bullies and bullying so that Dolly’s life “will not be wasted.”

On Wednesday, the family said they would start a trust called Dolly’s Dream aimed

Teen who killed self was taunted by homophobic slurs: relatives …

Relatives of a California teen who they say committed suicide after being taunted with homophobic slurs want to know why school officials didn’t more aggressively address the issue – both online and in the classroom.

German Aramburo-Guzman, 14, started ninth grade at San Diego’s King-Chavez Community High School in August and quickly became the target of bullies, according to his aunt, Katrina Guzman.

“It was verbally, through Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram and an anonymous messaging app,” Guzman told KGTV. “He was taunted over homophobic slurs. Kids would make fun of him, the way he looked, the way he acted.”

Guzman said her nephew kept the alleged bullying to himself initially because he feared that reporting it would only make it worse. But his mother eventually visited the school on Nov. 9 after the accused taunting and harassment intensified. During a meeting with a school counselor, Guzman’s mother was told that her
