‘I finally got a gun’: Tragic last tweet of popular high school teen who shot herself dead after posting picture of gun

Post By RelatedRelated Post



A popular high school student committed suicide after her cries for help to her hundreds of online friends were ignored.

Ashley Duncan, 17, wrote ‘I finally got a gun’ and then posted a picture of a revolver which, soon after, it is believed she used to shoot herself dead.



It followed a series of increasingly dark posts on Tumblr and Twitter where she talked of suicide, questioned the meaning of her life and said she was ‘miserable’.

She wrote: ‘Life ain’t worth the pain. if you know or have known what it feels like to want to die every minute second hour day week month year then you feel me.

‘I might not struggle financially but I struggle emotionally and mentally and I think that’s the worst struggle.

‘So in asking why can’t it be my choice to die now?… I’m miserable.

‘One day I won’t be here anymore and that’ll be the happiest day of my life… I’m tired and I’m done with this life.’

‘It’s like God is torturing me by keeping me here.’ She also wrote: ‘The only thing that made me happy is gone…I’m miserable.’

The ‘thing’ she refers to is not clear, but a previous post suggests she had just split up with a partner.

She had written: ‘My heart is broken. I’m not picking up the pieces and I’m not gonna rely on anybody to put my heart back together. It’s just that destroyed.’

  1. Oh My God!! What a beautiful young woman. My sincere condolences to the family. I am so so sorry for your loss…

  2. Oh my dear Lord above. This is such tragic news. I pray for peace and condolences to the parents, family,& friends of this little girl. It is my hope that this heartbreaking tragedy opens up the dialogue of mental illness in the Black Community.

  3. Eff writing back. No one checked on her at the home? That pic showed her being outside. Where are the neighbors or parents? Beauty now dead…. Speechless!

  4. Wait Don Cornelius killed himself I still don’t understand why he did that, cause he was in pain well there are meds for that, but I was taught to take your life that GOD or the CREATOR has given us is the greatest sin we will never be forgiven for, but Don was a great man but will his SOUL wake up in HELL but then it’s to late, but this lady fate or her SOUL might wake up in HELL in place her soul don’t wanna be, but I can’t understand why the younger generation just kill themselves like that such a beautiful woman gone and a great man gone,,,,,I don’t get it.

  5. What a shame. It’s too bad knowone was able to reach her. and if this was over a split with her boyfriend,A word from the wise, there’re to many fish in the sea, one monkey don’t stop no show and love shouldn’t hurt. In other words, as young as she is, she could find someone else. And instead of these young girls/boys focusing on their love partner, try to get educated so you have a good life. My mother once told me” there will always be boys/men around”. Things would have gotten better for her. Probably a few months from now she would of look back at this and wondered how she could of even like this person.

  6. It is very sad when a young life is taken; more tragic when they are so distraught with their young life they feel this is the only way to feel better. Our youth live in the moment and don’t undestand that life does go on…her parents have to go on now without her. It also concerns me this article describes her as a popular teenager; why her “friends” couldn’t help is also tragic, but as I told my teenager once “you will have only a few friends, most of the people in your life will be acquantiances” this is why FAMILY is so important. May this child rest in peace. Prayers to her family and friends who did care but could not help.
