YUCAIPA, CA – A 13-year-old girl hanged herself after being bullied at school, leaving a note calling herself a “loser.”

On the morning of November 28, the family of Rosalie Avila woke up to find the girl had hanged herself in her bedroom.

“I had to find my daughter hanging in her room,” said her father, Freddie Avila. “That’s a vision you never want to see from your daughter in her bedroom.”

She was taken to the hospital in extremely critical condition, before being declared brain dead and removed from life support on December 1.

Her family says Avila left behind a note in which she apologized, while also calling herself a “loser” and “ugly.”

Avila’s father said his daughter had endured two years of bullying at Mesa View Middle School.

“She kept a journal or a diary of the people who hurt her and people that called her ugly and just putting her down,” said her mother.

 It had gotten so bad recently that Avila had started cutting herself so her family had placed her in counseling.

The school, which was reportedly aware of the bullying, released a statement about Avila’s death without mentioning bullying. It read, in part:

“No one can fathom the heartbreak and confusion that we are certain many of our students and their families are feeling right now, especially the families of those students that have been most closely struck by this event. The District Board of Education, its administration, and staff are all united in care and concern for those affected by this tragedy. Crisis counselors have been deployed to the school site, and are available for any student who feels he or she needs to talk with someone as they struggle to cope with their feelings.”

A GoFundMe page has been created to help the family with funeral and medical expenses. They have already surpassed their $15,000 goal.

Her family wants to remind kids that their words can hurt and ask that the bullying stop so that another family doesn’t have to go through what they are.

“My daughter had the whole world,” he said. “Now, I just have to think about what she could have done or what she could have become. Now it’s just a memory.”

  • These stories are so frustrating. All the warning signs were there . So sad

  • Poor girl. Kids can’t realize that what’s going on *now* isn’t the way things will be forever. If she’d been able to stick around, ten years from now she’d be looking back and laughing at those people.

  • Schools don’t do shit about bullying. I know this from being physically beat in class by a boy everyday. Right in front of the teacher. Parents are failing our children.

  • Glad to see the school step up and do something (sarcasm)

  • So sad. What I can never understand is why the parents keep sending the child to school.. the parents know what’s happening. They know she’s cutting herself, they send her to counseling, they know the school is taking no actions to prevent bullying….I feel like if it was my daughter, under whatever circumstance, I would remove her from the situation that is causing her so much mental anguish.

  • Omg.. Tears.. So sad to see the parents speak about her.. Fkn schools always move to help when it’s much to late.. She was so beautiful and young.. I hate seeing these type of stories… I hope those other kids are told their name was in her book.. Let them face the fact that their words hurt her so they no longer do it to anyone else…

  • I don’t get it either.. Maybe they couldn’t move.. Taking her elsewhere wasn’t an option etc.. I am sure they are thinking of the millions of ways they could have prevented this.. So sad.

  • our society is so fucked when kids suicide on the regular over bullying. where are our champions?

  • Even Home or online schooling at that point.. I know work schedules might make that impossible, but making any sacrifice would be worth it. ????

  • Time to start holding the bullies and their parents accountable. Bullying is harassment. It’s a crime.

  • So very sad. This did not need to happen. Why did it though?

  • Nedly Mandingo IV

    Every one of those names mentioned in her journal need to be held accountable for this girl’s death. EVERY one of them. Expulsion and wrongful death lawsuits need to be slapping the faces of those bullies.

  • This little girl was my son’s friend and my neighbor. It is heart breaking. Those bullies are still harassing the family even after she has passed (making vile and cruel memes about her death) . the bullies need to be held accountable for their torment.

  • They should be charged with harassment. The family could sue the parents. I hope they can find a lawyer to help them.

  • I’m glad she kept a journal of who was bullying her. They need to be held accountable for her death. You pull that shit in the workplace and you’re fired. Those kids need to start cleaning out their lockers.

    This harassment went on for two years, it should have ended two years ago. That school needs to start explaining why that happened and what they are going to do from here on out when reports of bullying are coming in. Zero tolerance should mean just that.

    When I was a little kid, my mom moved us from a “Mayberry” type place, to the urban ghetto, where I was mercilessly bullied, for years (& I thought about killing myself, too). The experience turned me into the kind of parent who would have been BIG PROBLEMS for a family of any kid, who might have bullied mine, and I would have thought nothing of burning their family home down on top of them in the middle of the night.

    My child is grown now, and it’s a good thing he didn’t have the same hell in elementary & middle school that I did. It saved somebody from being killed, and me from prison. I HATE bullies and those who refuse to hold them accountable. They are SCUM and they need to be hurt.

  • Assholes. How do you not retaliate against something like that? ??. Heart breaking

  • Sadly the harassment was probably all due to jealousy cause she was beautiful!! I hope the parents pursue charges on the kids, parents & school!!!

    My daughter had a bully for almost 2 years I made her tell her principal about EVERY little thing that was said or done no matter how small! The girl left for almost a year then came back & I called to warn the school there would be a problem if they let her back & sure enough she attacked my daughter! My daughter beat her ass though! The mom tried to say mine attacked hers & thanks to kids with cell phones I have video proof that it was her daughter & I told her if her daughter ever comes near mine again or is associated with any other problems I’d press charges on BOTH of them!! YOU have to be your kids 2nd voice if the schools aren’t handling shit!!

  • HotReadingMama

    I have a 13 year old daughter who isn’t the cookie cutter preppy type, and middle school kids can be vicious. This is so sad.

  • Just terrible… Poor kid. Hope she named names in her journal and the kids responsible are dealt with accordingly.

  • Mama bears are the best

  • I often regret being pulled out of school, then I remember all the shit I went through and think maybe it was for the best. If you’re being tormented rather than taught, it loses the purpose.

  • Even after her death? That is just disgusting!!!

  • Yes, even after. They made a vile,disgusting meme and sent it to the family.

  • Post their names, or their parents names.. they need to be Named & Shamed… so very nice of the school to “deploy” counselors to the school,for the other kids.. but didn’t take the necessary steps to help this girl.

  • 2 years? Why wasnt she taken out of that school. My daughter had to drop out of Jr High due to bullying. She was homeschooled and then had to be sent somewhere else for school

  • The family needs to sue and those bullies need severe consequences. I hope they all feel terrible because nobody should be made to feel like that. How horribly sad for that family..i have a 13 yr old and cant even imagine :'(

  • LOL I know someone who is bullied daily at my job, often by the management team, and H.R. They allow the mostly mexican workers to continue to bully. The inmates run the asylum. It is okay. What goes around, comes around. Revenge is a dish best served arctic freeze cold!

  • Her parents say she is still being bullied and are seeing things like this on social media:

  • Parents say that the bullying is continuing.

  • about her?

  • Pace

    To be honest….it should fall on kids to prevent someone from being unfairly bullied by their peers. They are the most aware out of anyone and kids (people in general) tend to follow a pack mentality. If a few speak up, the rest may follow.
    However, this isn’t a perfect world so it rarely happens.

    It makes me think of the time my daughter got suspended for a fight. Three girls in her class were shoving and hitting a girl that was also in her class during P.E. and she proceeded to jump feet first into all 3 and beat their asses.

    Obviously, it isnt good for a 12 year old to fight, but after the girl’s parents meeting us after school and explaining for how long that had been going on to her kid, I can’t say I disagree with my kid’s choice. As far as we are aware, no one has picked on her since and she is a very close friend to my kids now.

    I wish people had more guts to speak up, rather adult or child.

  • Unfortunately, if they’re psycho enough to bully her to death, they’re psycho enough to be proud of it.

  • Somebody needs to press charges.

  • WTF!!

  • I guess that’s one argument you can give a kid against suicide–that the people who drove you to it won’t be sorry, they’ll just use it as an excuse to make even more fun of you–don’t give the fuckers the satisfaction.

  • Lisa Votino-Tarrant

    What the actual fuck….?!

  • Homeschool

  • Edward Newton

    Did the parents consider taking her out of that School?

  • Jesus. my first reaction is that I want to just put on steel toed boots and stomp the bullies’ faces in until nothing looks remotely human anymore then make the people who allowed this eat the bloody pulp

  • tell us the names and give links to these pieces of shit

  • rest is peace Rosalie. we are all diminished

  • Mazikeen666

    Omg so sad,schools dont do shit about it,every name on tha diary should be accountable,rip

  • She was a beautiful girl, those who hurt her, will suffer for thier cruelty.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    They just ground her into the dirt. A person can only take so much. Unless they make those kids responsible for the bullying, it will only continue. They think it’s funny. It’s horrible and mean. They’ll grow up being mean spirited people and will always be bullies unless it stops now.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Sick little assholes. They need to be disciplined. I hope their names and faces are with their posts online. What’s put on the internet never goes away. I hope it affects every aspect of their future lives in a horrible way. They’ve just cursed themselves for the rest of their lives.

  • sizzles73

    Love it. Bullying policies at schools are not worth the paper they are written on. The school does nothing. I have experienced it first hand with my daughter and have had times when the teacher has said to her” Make sure you tell your mum so she knows I am taking action” The action is “please don’t do that again “.

  • sizzles73

    Jesus!!!! That is horrific.

  • Giggin

    When I was in kindergarten in 1999 I was bullied by a fifth grade girl (I don’t remember how long) but I eventually got tired and threatened to throw a rock at her if she kept bullying me. Guess who got in trouble? Me. I was suspended and my mother was called and she had to come to the school and talk to the principal and administrators. Thank god she was on my side telling them I wasn’t violent and it came out I was a victim of bullying and they eventually had to have assemblies with anti-bullying talks. It doesn’t surprise me that these issue still persists today because the kids have become desensitized to violence and the suffering of others and the advances in technology things can be hidden more easily and things more easily shared. School fights are orchestrated through social media or text message (easily deleted/hidden from parents) and filmed and placed on youtube or something and it’s for the whole world to see someone’s pain and instead of doing something about it they laugh and joke about how weak the person is or other may feel well thank god my bullies don’t do that to me, but what if they do?

  • captaingrumpy

    I would like to see the kids named in her diary punished in some way that would make a statement.

  • No Comment

    Anyone interested in this topic should read Jodee Blanco’s book, “Stop Laughing at Me”. She was bullied badly in school (including high school) and she coined the term “adult survivor of peer abuse.” Her book describes her struggle, and her eventual triumph as she finally found love 20 years after high school and got married.

    Also check out the sequel she wrote, “Stop Laughing at Us.” In that book, she chronicles her new career of conducting workshops and giving talks at schools…all aimed at anti-bullying efforts. She relates how many kids would come up to her in tears after each of her talks, how astounding the numbers were. This problem is huge, folks.

    Btw, I believe she’s also on YouTube.

  • Maps

    Wished she could’ve seen, that those who bullied her, did it cause they were jealous of her beautiful looks and her gorgeous smile. Jealousy brings out the ugliness in all of us.

  • The parents should have taught her how to kick some fucking ass!!! Probably snowflakes.

  • Fucking awesome!!!

  • After finding a letter when she was 8 about how she wished she was dead cause some boys were harassing her for sticking up for a special ed kid (I raised hell at the school then too) I wasn’t about to deal with it again in middle school!

  • Wow man, that could be the shittiest response I’ve ever seen to a horrific tragedy.

  • You are right but I’m sick of people blaming teachers. They can only do so much. Parents too! Kids are kids. They are going to bully behind authorities back whenever they have the chance. People need to start teaching their kids to fight back.

  • Heather_Simpson

    OMFG! All of the red flags in order to see that this child needed help were there! The child was cutting herself for Christ’s Sake!!! OMFG these stories just rip my heart in two. The parents did their due diligence, the school should have done theirs. The school mentioned NOTHING about bullying in their stupid ass “cover my ass” letter. What a bunch of fuck wits.

  • Sejanus

    Bullies should be caned

  • BLRII

    I always wonder why the parents don’t get the child moved to another school or move the whole family to another place. I know it’s a big effort, but if your kid endures relentless bullying and the school can’t end it, doesn’t it make sense to make every effort to get the kid out of the situation?

  • BLRII

    Who can’t move? I find that impossible to believe except in the most extreme circumstances.

  • So sad

  • Not necessarily. Bullying can trigger lifelong mental illness.

  • Leslie Mashmann

    Such a beautiful little girl – only her self esteem was so ripped apart she ended her own life. This happens far too often. So this is my idea: All children have the right to an education. How can these bullied children be learning anything if they are so tortured in school? The schools are aware of it, but make no strong efforts to put a stop to it. I’m sure that the parents of children who bully are aware of it. Many people in this country care about money more than anything else. So, I believe that parents of bullied children should be able to sue the school, the school district, the state, and the parents of the children that bullied their child. Hit them where it hurts. Every child has the right to an education without having to be afraid of going to the place where they can get it.

  • Grumpygirl1973

    You have every right to be proud of your daughter and I hope you are.

  • Pace

    I am proud she defended someone that couldn’t defend theirself. I just wish it didn’t go on for so long, it shouldn’t have taken my kid to put a stop to it
