Nov 21 - Report: Teen commits suicide on Justin.tv
 

 
"Teen commits suicide on webcam, egged on by internet users

21st Nov 2008,


A teenager egged on by deranged internet users has committed suicide live on webcam – with his body laying prostrate for over five hours before authorities were called.

Abraham Briggs, a 19-year-old Florida man, used the screen names CandyJunkie and Mr Biggs on various body building internet forums, and told users he would commit suicide on webcam.

Initially dismissed as a prank by administrators, the man was later encouraged by forum users to terminate his own life, and then used the website Justin.tv to broadcast his death on the internet.

He was seen online consuming a quantity of pills, then lay on his bed with his back to the camera.

After users noticed the man was not moving, they tracked down his address and alerted authorities.

Web vision has been taken of police entering his room, checking for signs of life, then covering the camera with an article of clothing to end the broadcast.

A suicide note was posted on the forum by Briggs:

“I hate myself and I hate living. I think that if someone who knows me reads this they will know who I am. So I will leave this unsigned. I am an a@#hole. I have let everyone down and I feel as though I will never change or never improve.”

In response to the incident, Justin.tv chief executive officer Michael Seibel said the onus was on the community to report any inappropriate or concerning behavior.

"As for the broadcaster incident last night, we don’t comment on individual videos, however, our policy prohibits inappropriate content on Justin.tv," he said.

"We rely on the community to flag videos that they feel are objectionable. Once a video is flagged, it is reviewed and quickly removed from the system if it violates our Terms of Use."

In a panic, some forum members deleted their posts after the incident, and an official memorial thread was made for Biggs by moderators.

The incident has parallels to a case where a British man committed suicide on webcam, with internet users convincing him to progress with his own demise."
