Oběsila se 28. listopadu a nechala přitom dopis na rozloučenou, ve kterém se omlouvala rodičům za způsobenou bolest.
Podle rodičů snila o tom, že se jednou stane právničkou. V dopisu detailně popisuje šikanu, které čelila na druhém stupni školy v Mesa View. Škola o tom přitom věděla a Rosalie si do svého deníků zapisovala, kdo jí ubližuje a nadává. Často se pak řezala do zápěstí.
Její příběh částečně připomíná úvod drama seriálu „13 Reasons Why“. Ten se zakládá na novele, ve které dospívající dívka zaznamená třináct důvodů, proč ukončila svůj život a většina z nich se zakládá na nefér chování, které zažila ze strany svých vrstevníků.
V posledních dnech hýbe světem i případ teenagera Keatona Jonese, který nahrál se svou mámou video, ve kterém popisuje, jak ho ve škole někteří spolužáci trápí a šikanují. Video se stalo virálem a Keaton získal tisíce ohlasů od lidí z celého světa včetně celebrit jako je Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Millie Bobby Brown, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Chris Evans a dalších...
After being bullied by her middle school peers for two years, 13-year-old Rosalie Avila of Yucaipa, California tragically tried to take her life on Tuesday, Nov. 28th. She was taken to hospital and removed from life support on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017. . Rosalie left behind a letter apologizing and mentioned that she was "ugly" and a "loser." The school was aware of Rosalie's bullying and she had been in counseling, according to her aunt. Rosalie kept a journal of the people who hurt her and those who called her ugly and put her down, according to her mother. . Her parents said their daughter would often cut her wrists. "I remember a couple nights she'd come home, telling me that the kids are calling her names about her teeth. I go, 'You have braces, honey, don't worry. The braces are going to come off,' and she said, 'Yeah, but my teeth are straight and they're still making fun of me,'" her father said. . Then, on Tuesday, Rosalie hanged herself. "That's a vision you never want to see from your daughter in her bedroom," her mother said. “We had her in counseling, but I really feel like social media is such a big thing on kids," her mother added. "I think kids don't have the maturity to handle it." . Rosalie's emotional father had a message for people everywhere. "Think about what you say before you say it because your words are going to hurt somebody," Freddie Avila said, in tears. . Rosalie was described as a loving and warm individual who was a great artist and always got good grades. Her family said she loved the snow as much as she loved the beach and enjoyed singing. Her dream was to become a lawyer so she could make the world a better place.
