A 16-year-old girl has killed herself after 69 percent of her Instagram followers voted for her to die in an online poll.
The teenager was found dead after asking her Instagram followers: “Really Important, Help Me Choose D/L.”
A police spokesman said it is understood ‘D’ stood for ‘death’ while ‘L’ represented ‘life’.
He added: “As many as 69 percent of the teenager’s Instagram friends had supported the decision for her to kill herself via a voting poll.”
She had also reportedly posted a Facebook status update in which she said: “Wanna quit f****** life, I’m tired.”
The teenager, whose name has not been released, jumped from the third floor of a shopping centre.
Her body was found in Sarawak, Borneo, by a member of the public who reported the shocking discovery to police.
Police do not believe anybody else was involved in the teenager’s death.
Her body has been taken to the Sarawak General Hospital Forensic Department for a post mortem.
