Daisy Coleman – one of the teenage girls featured in “Audrie & Daisy”, the Netflix documentary on several cases of rape – died by suicide… according to her mother. Daisy’s mom, Melinda, said her daughter committed suicide on Tuesday night. Her body was discovered after Melinda called the police to do a welfare check. Melinda said… “She was my best friend and my amazing daughter. I think she must have made people believe that I could live without her. I can not. I wish I could have taken the pain away from him! “ Daisy was 14 in January 2012 when she was allegedly raped at a house party in Missouri after being a victim of alcoholism … although no one has ever been convicted. The 2016 Netflix doc followed Daisy and her family members as they faced the trauma of her alleged assault and the backlash from their community. Daisy’s mom says, “She never got over what those boys did to her and that just isn’t fair. My little girl is gone. The family faced another tragedy last year when Daisy’s younger brother was killed in a car crash. “Audrie & Daisy” also focused on the sexual assault of Audrie Pott in September 2012 in California. Audrie died by suicide 10 days later. Following her rape case, Daisy co-founded the organization SafeBAE with the mission to end sexual assault on middle and high school students and help survivors. The organization says she is devastated by his death and has “suffered irreplaceable loss.” Daisy was 23. TEAR
