“I’ve been trying to contact my family. I’ve been trying to contact everybody all day and no one’s answering.
“Mummy, I’m sorry. I’m sorry for what I’m about to do. Please, mummy, take care of my two sisters. I know you’ve been through a lot with all of us and you’ve done a lot for everybody. I’m sorry.
“And to all my friends and family, I’m sorry.
“And I want everyone to see this. I want y’all guys to watch me die. And I want some people to live with this for the rest of their lives, especially you, you know yourself.
“I’m tired. I smile and I laugh and I play every day but I’m not OK.
“Y’all can say whatever you want to say because of this video but y’all will not understand. I give up. I give up on everything. I hope the Lord forgive me too. And I hope you guys forgive me too. I’m sorry.”
At this point, she reaches for the poison and drinks it. She then reclines on her car seat and continues filming as the substance takes effect.
