I can't embed the fox-9 news video in the article but it's somewhat distasteful to her anyway imo ("you can see she's stunningly beautiful" the reporter saysDead)

19-Year-Old College Student Commits Suicide After Being Bullied About PICS Flick


Alyssa Funke, was a 19-year-old girl who was taunted on Facebook and Twitter after a video of her surfaced on the amateur PICS site CastingCouch-X. The online harassment might have prompted her to take her own life.  Funke was a college freshman at University of Wisconsin-River Falls, but received the brunt of her harassment from former high-school classmates.

In her CastingCouch video, Funke who describes herself as African-American and Native American, is seen speaking in an interview type session, before performing on camera. Former classmates found out about the video and started harassing her on Twitter and Facebook.

One student tweeted, “Nothing brings a school together like a PICS star who graduated last year. I guess you could say news spreads fast here at Stillwater hahah.”

From My Fox Twin Cities:

Alyssa responded with her own tweets, “famous for dayzzz” and “pornstar status, a-okay” — but everything was not okay. Two weeks after the video was posted online, on April 14, Alyssa bought a 12-gauge shotgun, drove to a picturesque boat landing on Big Carnelia Lake and killed herself. She was only 19 years old.

Alyssa’s family did not want to speak on camera, and it’s easy to understand why — but they did tell the Fox 9 Investigators that although Alyssa had struggled with depression from time to time, they believe the taunts on social media played a significant role in her suicide.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating her death, but detectives don’t believe the postings on social media constitute criminal harassment and a spokesperson for Stillwater High School says they haven’t received any complaints or reports of bullying — but they point out, correctly, that Alyssa was no longer a student of theirs.

Yet, her classmates at UW-River Falls say they have little doubt about what drove her to suicide.

“A lot of people are really negative — troll-y — about it or standing up and saying it shouldn’t happen to people,” Katrina dodge said. “Sad it’s still happening, actually.”


Even a month after Funke’s suicide, the video remains online and people are now trolling her page and leaving nasty comments.  Fox 9 Investigators informed Casting Couch Video that Funke had killed herself, but the news network says the company have not returned phone calls or e-mails and have not answered why they continue to keep that video online.

Why did she make the video in the first place?

How much was she paid?

I'm tired of this bullying word. Not everything is bullying. She was made fun of for being in PICS. RIP to her but I guess I only consider bullying when a little kid is being picked on day after day in school.

yeah but what one considers a word to mean and what it actually means isnt always one the same.  im pretty certain what these kids did falls under the realm.

it sounds like she was dealing with a lot of issues at home (dead/absent parents, neglect, financial issues) plus having a history of mental illness...sad
