Georgia girl live-streamed suicide [Shocking Video]

Last Friday, a 12-year-old Georgia teen committed suicide, by hanging herself from a tree. To make this already-tragic story worse, The Dreamin' Demon reports that 12-year-old Katelyn Nichole Davis chose to live-stream the entire 45-minute incident, using a popular video-streaming app.

Because of Katelyn's horrifying decision to live-stream her suicide, the video is now permanently on the internet for anyone to see. While that is an utterly disturbing thought, it may also be a blessing -- a video that may deter other suicidal teens (and adults) from going through with their urges.

If you can stomach it, the video can be viewed below. Be warned: This is a 12-year-old girl committing suicide. This is real, this is not a dramatization. If you can't handle this kind of imagery, do not watch it.

This is a truly tragic case of teen suicide, but it's not the first time someone has broadcast such a thing on the internet. Unfortunately, this is just the latest case to make media headlines. What exactly led Katelyn Nichole Davis to take her own life on a live internet stream? What led her to commit such a permanent act of self-harm before an audience of countless people? Her final words, prior to committing suicide, seemed to reveal that this was a deeply depressed child. Were there any red flags that could have prevented this?
