May God grant you the peace you sought

I am so sorry that the system apparently let you down Ashley.

If only you hadn't taken this irrevocable step.

Rest in Peace Ashley.

Tweets document student's painful final hours
She links suicide to sexual abuse, absence of justice.

Then she killed herself.
