This is so sad. 14-year old Nakia Venant did a live stream from her foster home in Miami. She created a homemade noose and committed suicide. There is not much information about the death. Administrators with the Florida Department of Children & Families and also Miami Gardens Police Department are investigating the death.

DCF Secretary Mike Carroll says,

“We are absolutely horrified and devastated by the news of this young girl’s death. We will do everything we can to support this family and all those who cared for her as they begin to heal from this tragedy. We will conduct a comprehensive, multidisciplinary special review to examine this child’s history and the circumstances related to serving the child.” ⠀⠀

The young girl attached her scarf to a “shower-glass door frame” to hang herself. A local hospital pronounced her dead. One of her friends tried to stop her from committing the act but was too late. So sad.
