Teenager Kills Herself After Nude Pictures Leaked Online

An American teenager has killed herself after her friend filmed a video of her in the shower and Posted it on the Snapchat social networking site, her family said.

According to the deceased’s mother, Tovonna Holton stole a gun from her mother and shot herself in the family’s bathroom.

The 15-year-old was found dead just hours after the footage was uploaded to the media sharing site, in her family’s Florida home.

Ms Holton-Teamer told WFLA- TV: ‘I couldn’t get in the bathroom.

‘The bathroom light was off so I tried to get in and I looked down and I saw the puddle of blood. I tried to apply the pressure, the pressure to her head. I tried to save her.’


The video of Tovonna Holton was shared on Social Media site SnapChat.

She then spoke about the last conversation she had with her daughter.

‘Tovonna would say, ‘Mommy, I owe them; I owe them.’ I said, ‘What do you mean you owe them?’ I couldn’t understand what was wrong.’

After her death, Tovonna’s aunt Angel Scott discovered that bullies had shared the naked images of Tovonna.

She went on to tell the news station: ‘Everybody was out there talking about her and calling her names and they said it went up on social media, Snapchat. I’d never heard of that before about three-something that afternoon.

‘I want [the bullies] to pay, to feel what we feeling, even if their child is convicted or in trouble, they can go visit their child.’
