Netflix star Daisy Coleman has died on by self suicide, aged 23.
Documentary subject Coleman showed up in 2016 film Audrie and Daisy. Her body was found after her mom, Melinda, asked police to embrace a government assistance check.
She called Coleman “my best friend and [an] amazing daughter” as she reported the news on Facebook.
She continued: “I think she had to make it seem like I could live without her. I can’t. I wish I could have taken the pain from her!”
Audrie and Daisy uncovered Coleman and Audrie Pott’s encounters of rape in 2012. The narrative investigates the harassing looked by young ambush casualties.
Melissa added: “She never recovered from what those boys did to her and it’s just not fair. My baby girl is gone.”
The narrative subtleties Coleman’s claims that she was assaulted at a gathering when she was 14 years of age by Matthew Barnett, who was 17.
After the news stood out as truly newsworthy, her family had to move out of Maryland. The case was in the long run dropped, which Coleman’s family asserted was because of the reality Barnett’s family had neighborhood political associations.
Coleman went on to help establish SafeBAE (Before Anyone Else), a non-benefit association concentrated on halting rape among school understudies, just as helping youthful survivors.
An announcement discharged by SafeBAE stated: “[We are] shattered and shocked by her passing.”
“She had many coping demons and had been facing and overcoming them all, but as many of you know, healing is not a straight path or any easy one. She fought longer and harder than we will ever know.”
The announcement included that Coleman would need the youthful survivors she helped ”to know they are heard, they matter, they are loved, and there are places for them to get the help they need”.
Audrie and Daisy debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. It proceeded to win a Peabody Award.
