Daisy Coleman, one of the teenagers who featured in Audrie & Daisy, a Netflix documentary about the alleged rape of three highschool girls, has died by suicide, the 23-year-olds mother told TMZ.
Coleman’s mother, Melinda, reportedly told the outlet that her daughter died on Tuesday night.
The 23-year-old had previously featured in a 2016 documentary that followed her and her family’s experiences of trauma following her alleged assault as a teenager.
Coleman was allegedly raped while she was intoxicated and unconscious in her brother’s friend’s basement, while her friend, 13-year-old Paige Parkhurst, was raped in the next room.
“She was my best friend and amazing daughter. I think she had to make make it seem like I could live without her. I can’t. I wish I could have taken the pain from her,” her mother told TMZ.
