College Student Commits Suicide Over Cyberbullying for Appearing in Porn

College Student Commits Suicide Over Cyberbullying for Appearing in Porn

| On 23, May 2014

A straight-A college student ended her life after getting bullied by people online over her choice to appear in pornography. Alyssa Funke, 19, from University of Winconsin-River Falls, appeared in the website CastingCouch-X. After her former classmates from her high school Oak Park Heights, Minnesota, discovered the video, they began sending her abusive messages through social networking sites.

On April 14 and 15, Funke was seen active in Twitter mocking those who have sent her hurtful messages, showing no signs of depression.

But, everything was not alright. On April 16, Funke bought a shot gun and drove at a boat landing on Big Carnelia Lake, 26 miles from River Falls and 9 miles from Oak Park Heights and shot herself.

Funke’s family didn’t want to speak in front of the camera, but they believed that the cyberbullying contributed a lot in her decision to end her life. They also admitted that she suffered from depression.¬†The Washington County Sheriff’s Office told the station that it does not think the taunts rise to the level of criminal harassment and the investigation is still going on. But most likely no criminal charges will be filed.

The officials of the school of Funke said they haven’t received any complaints of cyberbullying. However, they¬†pointed that she’s no longer their students. Her former classmates was deeply saddened by the news noting that this shouldn’t be happening.
