On January second I had the misfortune of observing the death of 12yo Kaitlyn Nicole Davis. A young child, full of life, had decided to end hers on December 30, 2016. Why did this child feel this way? With that question, I began my investigation.
In her online diary, which has since been removed, Kaitlyn told of a horrific home life. She accuses her mother of being addicted to medication, her step-father as a pedophile. And, upon investigation, I learned this was just the doorway into the hell she endured.
Youtube channel, “Justice4Kaitlyn,” jas posted several home videos. Among these videos, is an altercation between Kaitlyn and her mother. The video, although nobody is seen, we can hear clearly hear the mother issuing multiple threats of harm to her kids. Kaitlyn confronts her mother about the drug use as well as an affair. I was begining to see the big picture.
The video only gives us a small window to look through. However, I had a pretty good idea as to what she endured daily. As if this wasn’t bad enough, the video clearly shows that Kaitlyn was, in fact, parenting her siblings. At one point she is asked why she hadn’t spanked one of her siblings. To this, Kaitlyn informs her mother thst she is not their parent, she is a child. A clear case of neglect. However, what about the other accusations?
As we speak, local police have opened up a case,based upon the the diary. Although I am positive that Kaitlyn’s neglectful parents drove her to suicide, it is still unknown as to rather or not sexual abuse had occured. For this information, we only have the imprinted words of a girl who lost the war within her mind.
There is nothing positive about this case. Even now, I have yet to address the topic via Youtube simply because I do not know how. To sit and watch a child take her own life was bothersome; the image, even now, haunts my mind. What I am learning about her family is simply disturbing. For this reason, I began using the hashtag, #JusticeForKaitlyn. Please, show your support and make this hashtag spread.
