When some one searches for his essential thing, thus he/she wants to be available that in detail,
thus that thing is maintained over here.

Wait jumping off the GWB works? I thought it wasn’t high enough. She was prob alive under the water until she drowned. R.I.p. the mefs don’t help either.

It does seem like Ashley started it but Alison didn’t have to stoop to that level. If she felt threatened she should’ve gone to the authorities, knowing Ashley had problems in the past. There is no reason for her to tell someone to go kill themselves. I wish Ashley had been stronger and thought about how killing herself would effect those that loved her.These are suppose to be grown women acting like children.Ashley had serious problems and Alison knowing this told her to go do something that Ashley probably thought about doing all the time, because of her illness.I’m sure Alison has learned a hard lesson, and will continue to think back on the moment she wrote those words to Ashley and realize she was wrong to have done that.

Ok these are my thoughts…. I can understand why people are saying that she is a attention seeker. Why? Because HollywoodLife put this article in a way that it seems like that. First i thought wauw i felt really bad for ashley. But then when i read on more of the story, i thought “heh?!” I bet there is so much more to this story then meets the eye. Its all in the maybes, because we dont know what exactly happend. The only thing that i do know is that i feel sorry for her family and those b***es who bullied her will live with this fact for the rest of their lifes.

Disgusted you should take some of your own advice.Clearly a lot can be learned by ALL by this tragic situation.Again it is terrible that ANYONE especially a friend?? Would post such an evil message to suggest she kill herself on Xanax especially knowing there was an issue with depression.More over telling a young lady of 22 just ignore it .Or block the bully so does not prove to be the solution most young women would tell you that advice is a band aid. Also she could not diffuse the round of negative and deliberate comments made to her about her. It appears you chose to look at part of the sum total and not the whole problem. What I am saying is clear how about not make rude hurtful vicious comments that you know could impact someone very adversely that is not what being social is about. Again my prayers go out to Ashley’s family to Ashley may she now rest in peace.

Can’t believe some of the heartless comments on this page. Regardless of what happened a woman is dead, how would you feel if you sister or brother killed them self for a ‘stupid reason’ and everyone was slagging them off while you are grieving? Have a heart you ruthless, shallow idiots.

How about you block them from your Facebook page? She had to have some issues before. This woman is 22 not 13.

I can’t believe on a post about a 22 year old girl jumping off a bridge anyone who doesn’t know her personally would make any comments about anything – including the people she wrote negative things about in a note she wrote in a very dark place. Ashley clearly had a lot chemically going on- people just don’t jump off bridges because they’re being bullied – everyone has been bullied one way or another. These are young girls growing up in a very odd world that has a very strange view of reality.
This is a time when you all should put yourself in her family & friends shoes – could you imagine someone talking about how good your baby sister looked when she jumped to her death? Blowing this whole thing up with posts and drama what gives it such an appeal to these desperate and sad individuals – burn out not fade away – let Ashley rest in peace and show some respect – not a single reporter or any of you know anything about her and should keep your opinions off public sites.

Being bullied is not a good experience. That’s why I am speaking from own experience.

Don’t let the bullies pull you down. Don’t let them affect your life. The best way to beat bullies is to show them that you are a better than them.

Enjoy life, be strong and don’t be scared. Bullies are very happy when they see that you’re being affected and the more that they will bully you.

Bullies are sick people. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!

wow. I wouldn’t want to be Miss Van Meanie-Pants right now. Or ever. When she grows up she’ll realize what she did to that poor young woman and have to face herself for who and what she really is: a bully. She’s not going to be able to afford all Her Blondeness due to all the therapy she’s going to need in the future to deal with the fact that she pushed this woman over the edge. I hold her responsible. Suggesting a person overdose “like they did before” tells me she knew very well what kind of sensitive person she was toying with. God, I hate NYC and all the competitive fakery.

It wasn’t Victoria who made a comment about her previous attempt and you shouldn’t make comments about anything you don’t know. That’s how girls are today – they’re mean that is not what made her jump. You shouldn’t ever wish that kind of guilt on anyone who doesn’t truly deserve it

Being bullied is not a reason to kill yourself. All through school I was a runt and bullied my whole life. I didn’t take the easy way out and kill myself. Dawson, you are right she was a stupid moran. Nah-B is also right too, sounds like she was an attention seeking idiot. Has anyone found a body? This could all be for attention.

Are you saying that if she wasn’t beautiful God shouldn’t bless her family? She brought EVERYTHING upon herself. Like someone else said, she sounds like a attention seeking whore.

Who give’s you the right to call her name’s like that. You have the mind set of a child. She is gone and not here to defend herself. So do we call you MR. PERFECT. Until you have walked in someone else’s shoe’s you can’t say what you would do. Judging is easy when you are the one not being judged. Your comments make me sick. What if it where your family member? Really or is your next comment going to be mine would NEVER do that or I dont have family. My suggestion is to GROW up and if you can’t say anything nice then SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We all can’t be like you. Thank goodness. I like to see the good in all. And you like to judge the worst maybe because you don’t feel good about yourself. PUTTING others down make you feel better? That is SICK

Adderall and Klonopin are guilty for driving this young woman to suicide, not the silly Facebook “fight.” When will parents start paying attention to what their children (yes, even as adults they’re children) are being prescribed by lazy, inept, unconcerned doctors who promise a panacea in a pill!! Very sad commentary on the medical profession!

So sad! I am curious as to how much support from family these kids have.How can one take their life due to FB bullies? Are we as parents not properly equipping our kids with coping skills? One has to wonder what we as parents can do,what is lacking..You can not stop bullying,people can’t be forced to be kind so it would be nice to better equip our kids to handle this.You can not control anyone’s behavior but your own.That is so important to remember.

If this young woman was on high powered medication, then there were other issues other than fighting over a boy. I hope these young people realize that death is permanent and rarely do you get a second chance. Wish she had gotten help before taking this drastic step in ending her life as a solution to her problem.

Most young people abuse these drugs simply because they have no regard for themselves or the law. They have this whole ‘YOLO’ notion about life. It’s not the other people’s faults that she decided to take her own life. Sounds to me like an argument over a relationship, which is normal. Except, she being the attention whore she is, decided to take it to a whole new level
