New York Posts reports that the teen whose identity is yet to be revealed, had sent a text message to a friend of her ex boyfriend a few hours before she had committed suicide.

The reports reveal that the text message had revealed the violence and rape her ex had inflicted on her, claiming that she would be ending her life because of the harm the young man had done to her.

She says:

"The video I am doing right now is not made to create the buzz but rather to make people react, to open the minds, and that’s it."

During the disturbing video, viewers can be seen encouraging the teen to carry out her threats of suicide, albeit in French.

The teen had spent over two hours on Periscope, divided into five live sessions where she talks about her life as well as her difficult relationship with her ex.

May her soul rest in peace.
