Bullying continues after teen girl hangs herself

Bullying continues after teen girl hangs herself

Bullies continued targeting a California girl on life support after a suicide attempt.

Rosalie left behind a letter apologizing for the hurt she was causing her family, and writing that she did it because she was "ugly" and a 'loser'.

The devastated parents said they voiced their concerns about bullying to their daughter's middle school, but said they don't believe enough was done to stop Rosalie and others from being bullied.

"We had her in counseling, but I really feel like social media is such a big thing on kids", Charlene told ABC 7. "As a mom, I'm still asking myself, like, 'What went wrong?'"

She said: "For you to do that, I mean, you're heartless ... you have no compassion". One of the notes stated, "Sorry, Mom and Dad".

'I go, "You have braces, honey, don't worry".

A Winter Storm Will Impact The Area Monday
A quick burst of snow is expected in the mountains Sunday night into Monday morning, according to the National Weather Forecast. The combination of falling snow and a very strong northwest wind will create low visibilities with near blizzard conditions.

And as if that pain was not enough, Rosalie's parents said they are now being bullied as they mourn having to let their daughter go.

And ever since Freddie and his wife Charlene had to say goodbye to their daughter - they have started receiving hateful cyber-bullying messages on social media. "Next time don't tuck me in this", along with a photo of a bed, "Tuck me in THIS", with an edited image of Avila's face pasted over someone pointing to an open grave. "When you are being harassed and intimidated in school and in any form on social media, it's very hard to get away from that".

Rosalie's parents are hoping the police and the school district will take action to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening again.

Freddie added: "I did everything I'm supposed to do as a father, and these people did not respond, because those bullies are still at the school".

The Avila's said their daughter was bullied for years - and now they're being targeted, too.

She was rushed to a local hospital, where her parents kept her on life support until Monday night so her organs could be donated, NBC News wrote.

Worse, even after their daughter committed suicide, Freddie and Charlene Avila saw the bullying move from their daughter to them.

In a statement, the school district said: "No one can fathom the heartbreak and confusion that we are certain many of our students and families are feeling right now". She was a lovely person inside and out.

Her dream was to become a lawyer so she could make the world a better place. "The world lost a treasure".
