On December 30th Katelyn Nicole Davis aged 12 streamed her suicide on Facebook Live.

Police say they are powerless to stop the video spreading across Facebook and a number of other websites.

In the horrific video she claimed she has been sexually assaulted by a member of her family.

Day’s before her death Katelyn published a blog about sexual abuse.

That video has now sparked outrage as police have been powerless to have the video removed.

The video was live streamed until her parents discovered her hanging in the back garden. They find her body and then stop the live stream.

She committed suicide after saying she have been physically and sexually assaulted by a member of her family.

Polk County Police Chief Kenny Dodd said “We want it down as much as anybody for the family and it may be harmful to other kids. We contacted some of the sites,

“They asked if they had to take it down and by law they don’t. But it’s just the common decent thing to do in my opinion,”

Police have confirmed they are investigating the circumstances surrounding the suicide.

No one has been arrested.
