Grim story about a 14 year old girl popular on Tiktok whose classmates sold information about her to a stalker

Eventually, her father shot and killed the stalker:

In early 2020, after [the 14-year-old] noticed [the stalker] angling for her attention on TikTok, she learned that friends in New Jersey and Florida were selling him photos of her as well as her personal information, including her cellphone number, which [the stalker] used to call and text her. In another instance, [the stalker] logged onto a classmate’s school account and did math homework in exchange for information about [her], her family said.


[Her] parents allowed her to sell [the stalker] a couple of selfies that she had already posted to Snapchat.

“I wasn’t sending anything of my body,’’ [she] said. “It was just pictures of my face, which is what I assume that he was paying for. My whole thing is my pretty smile — that’s my content.”


[She] is still on social media, with her parents’ support. [Her mother] said she did not want “sick individuals” to force [her daughter] off the platforms. “Why should we allow them to stop her? Maybe she’s meant to bring awareness to all this”
