Daisy Coleman was one of the girls featured in the Netflix documentary Audrie and Daisy, which discussed a number of rape cases. The film, directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
In a piece of painful news, Daisy Coleman mum Melinda Coleman told the media outlet her young daughter took her own life.
Following Daisy Coleman’s suicide, her dead body was discovered after Melinda asked police to do a welfare check.
Melinda said: “She was my best friend and amazing daughter.
“My daughter Catherine Daisy Coleman committed suicide tonight. If you saw crazy/messages and posts it was because I called the police to check on her. She was my best friend and amazing daughter,” Melinda wrote. “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! She never recovered from what those boys did to her and it’s just not fair. My baby girl is gone.”
In 2016 Daisy appeared in Netflix documentary Audrie & Daisy where she discussed her experience of being raped at a high school party.
She was a sweetheart girl who co-founded SafeBAE, an organization with the mission of ending sexual assault among middle and high school students, as well as helping survivors.
SafeBAE has announced that they are devastated by Daisy Coleman’s suicide and have “suffered an irreplaceable loss”.
Daisy Coleman never recovered from being raped experience
Daisy was 14-years-old in January 2012 when she was sexually assaulted at a house party in Missouri, after being plied with alcohol, though nobody was ever sentenced.
Audrie & Daisy focused on how Daisy and her family and friends came up with the mental trauma of the assault and the rejection they felt by their community afterward.
Daisy opened up of being taunted and harassed both at school and online.
Her heartbroken mother said she ‘never recovered’ from what she faced with.
“She never recovered from what those boys did to her and it’s just not fair. My baby girl is gone,” she said.
Daisy explained in 2017: ‘After my case went viral I took a break for a while, but during that time period I noticed a lot of other victims and survivors had come forward. ‘Seeing me doing it so publicly, I felt like that gave them a space to tell their own story and I was really inspired by that.’
Daisy told how she ‘did not cope well’ following the incident and felt ‘very negative’ towards herself. However, she continued: ‘I feel no resentment towards my attacker only because I have come to realise that he was only passing on some form of negativity to me which at some point was passed onto him so once I came to that realization… that made me forgive him in a sense even though he never presented an apology.’
Daisy Coleman story was full of tragedies
The family endured another tragedy last year when Daisy’s younger brother died in a car accident.
Then her father passed away in a car accident too.
The Coleman had originally moved to Missouri after their father died in a car accident.
