Daisy mamma, Melinda, says her daughter took her own life Tuesday night. Her body was discovered after Melinda called the police to do a welfare check.
Melinda says … “She was my best friend and amazing daughter. I think she had to make it look like I could live without her. I can not. I wish I could have taken the pain away from her! “
Daisy was 14 years old in January 2012 when she was allegedly raped at a house party in Missouri after being picked up with alcohol … but no one was ever convicted.
The Netflix 2016 document followed Daisy and her family members as they dealt with the trauma of her alleged abuse and their hostile reaction.
Daisy’s mother says: “She has never recovered from what these boys did to her and it’s just not fair. My girl is gone.” The family dealt with another tragedy just last year when Daisy’s younger brother was killed in a car accident.
“Audrie & Daisy” also focused on sexual abuse Audrie Pott in September 2012 in California. Audrie died suicide 10 days later.
After her rape, Daisy founded the organization SafeBAE with the mission to end sexual abuse among middle and high school students and help survivors. Org says it was devastated by her death and has “suffered an unchanging loss.”
