AURORA, CO – A 10-year-old girl reportedly committed suicide after a fight between her and another girl was posted online.

According to the father of Ashawnty Smith, his daughter was involved in a fight with her alleged bully on school grounds last month.

“She got into her first ever fight. It was recorded by a student and sent to an app called Musical.ly,” her father said.

The video that was posted showed Ashawnty and another girl fighting on Sunrise Elementary School property while other kids watched.

The girl’s mother said the fight started after her daughter confronted the girl she claims had been bullying her daughter.

Once the fight was posted online, the girl suffered even more bullying. The bullying got so bad that, according to her parents, Ashawnty ended her own life.

“My daughter came home two weeks later and hanged herself in the closet,” her mother said.

Ashawnty was rushed to the hospital where she would spend two weeks on life support before dying Wednesday morning.

The girl’s parents believe Ashawnty was the victim of “bullycide” and are hoping that by coming forward and telling their story, they can help prevent another child from killing themselves because of bullying.

“I want other parents to know that it’s happening,” Ashawnty’s mother said. “That was my baby and I love my baby and I just want mothers to listen.”

The Cherry Creek School District has released a statement that read:

“This is a heartbreaking loss for the school community. Mental health supports will be made available for any students who need help processing the loss.

“We do not tolerate bullying of any kind in our schools and we have a comprehensive bullying prevention program in place at all of our schools. The safety and wellbeing of students is our highest priority and we strive every today to ensure schools are safe, welcoming and supportive places that support learning.

“We were made aware of that video when a media outlet approached us with it. We took immediate action in response, turning the video over to police and addressing the matter with students.

“It should also be noted that the video did not take place during school hours.”
