Venant’s livestreamed death was just three weeks after another girl, 12-year-old Katelyn Nicole Davis, of Georgia, broadcast her own self-inflicted hanging on Facebook, claiming she had been sexually abused by a relative. Nakia Venant was a native of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and was enrolled in the seventh grade at Young Women’s Preparatory Academy.
She is survived by a younger brother.
As news of Nakia’s death spread online, dozens of people took to her Facebook page, under the user name “HotHead Nikee,” to express their condolences and pay tribute to her all-too-brief life.
