However, the cyberbullying kicked up around April. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € "People would make up fake Facebook accounts and they would message her and she wouldn't respond and they would still come at her," Vela's sister, Jackie revealed. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € "They would say really, really mean things like, 'Why are you still here?' They would call her fat and ugly. She was beautiful, absolutely beautiful; the only thing people could find to pick on her was her weight." Vela exhausted all efforts to avoid the bullying, including changing her number and filing police reports. However, the officials couldn't help because there was no traceability of the harassment, since the bullies used an app. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Ultimately, the harassment was too much to bear. On Tuesday, she sent a text to her sister that read, "I love you so much, please remember that, and I'm sorry for everything." In turn, Jackie called their parents and grandparents, who rushed to Vela's Texas City home, where they found Vela alive holding a gun to her chest. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € The family pleaded with Vela, begging her not to pull the trigger. However, Vela's mind had already been made up, reports state. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Vela was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € As a result, Vela's family mourns the death of their beloved Brandy. They also hope for stricter laws against cyberbullying and greater awareness for the issue to give meaning to her death.
