On Christmas Day, Simone Back, age 42, posted the Facebook status update “Took all my pills be dead soon bye bye everyone.” That update sparked a 148-comment thread about one of her previous relationships in which many called her a liar and said that she “OD’d all the time.” She had over 1,000 Facebook friends.

17 hours after Back posted the update, someone notified her mom, who then called the authorities. She later posted on her daughter’s Facebook page, “My daughter Simone passed away today so please leave her alone now.” Thought Catalog Logo Mark
