Bullying lead to their death.

On Friday, October 6, 2017 my aunt & little cousin were found dead in their Virginia Beach home. They had fought the Virginia Beach school system for almost 2/3 years b/ c my cousin was constantly being bullied but no serious action was ever taken by the school. In September 2017 my cousin was bullied at her bus stop by a football player at the school. He called her all sorts of derogatory slurs & after being fed up of his bullying, she decided to take up for herself. The guy punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground causing her to suffer a concussion. While on the ground the guy continued to punch her in the face causing bone fractures in her face. She was 12 years old.
No one from the school contacted my aunt until almost 2pm & this assault took place around 8am.
My aunt was denied, from the school, the kids information to get a protective order. She was denied a transfer request to move her child to another school. She was also denied the request to home school her child. They both were tired of the bullying & NO help from the school system. Before their deaths, they did reach out to Channel 10's Rico Bush. The matter was just being investigated before they died.
My cousin's death is unknown at this time but my aunt seeing her child deceased took her own life.
They had no insurance.
Please, please help & assist with burial funds & help us stop bullying once & for all .
