Dorothy Dutiel and May Kieu, both 15, were killed in a murder-suicide at Independence High School in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, and it appears that Dorothy left a final message to her friends and family on her Twitter account.

Something appeared to be upsetting Dorothy on February 10, when she tweeted “rejected af” (as f–k). On February 12, just hours before her death, she tweeted “Good bye ( :” It’s haunting to see her possibly tell the world of her intentions, but especially the fact that she included a smiley face in her final tweet. What was going through her mind on that last day of her life?
Good bye (:

May and Dorothy were found outside the school’s cafeteria before class had even started, around 8:00am local time. The two girls each suffered a single, fatal gunshot wound; a handgun and suicide note were close by. Though police wouldn’t divulge what the note said, they were certain that what they saw was a murder-suicide. It’s a tragic event that’s rocked a community beyond belief.
It was revealed on February 13, the day after the shooting, that May and Dorothy were actually in a relationship. The teens shared loving messages about each other on Instagram, which were packed with sweet pictures of the girls cuddling and looking happy. Dorothy posted an adoring message about May in December 2015:
“I liked May since 5th grade, a little kid crush I guess. Slowly I began to see what a lovely dork she was. There was a point where she thought of me as her sister, and the feels were damaged. Along this time frame we both dated, but that doesnt really matter anymore. She was the light of my life, and by 8th grade I knew she was interested. But of course both of us were dorks and I was too scared to verbally ask her. So I wrote it on a sticky note and she said yes. That was Nov. 11, 2013. We graduated from 8th grade together, and fearfully entered freshmen year. We had little hard ships along the way but we both grew from them. Life seemed to get a little better and she was still there. I couldn’t believe she was still there, holding my hand.’
