The mother of a Florida girl who streamed her suicide on Facebook Live has been accused of watching as her daughter killed herself and mocking her with messages on the post suggesting she was seeking attention and crying wolf.
Gina Caze did nothing to stop her daughter Nakia Venant, 14, from committing suicide as the foster child broadcast her death in Miami in late January, a damning report from a child services department says.
The Florida Department of Children and Families said Caze even criticized her daughter as she watched the two-hour long Facebook Live video, calling Venant a “custody jit” and and that she was a “crying wolf… seeking attention.” the department said Monday.
Caze had a troublesome relationship with her daughter, as Venant was taken away from her due to physical abuse concerns. But the mother has strenuously denied she made the comments as she watched her daughter die.
Venant was living with a foster family at the time of her death and was found hanged from the door frame in the bathroom by Miami-Dade police.
The comments to Venant were made from Caze’s Facebook account with the user name Gina Alexis, reported Tampa Bay Times.
