The dad of a bullied 14-year-old New Jersey high school girl — who took her own life after an online video showed a group of girls attacking her — said the suicide occurred after the teen got a taunting text about the bloody beatdown.
Adriana Kuch was found dead at home on Feb. 3, two days after the sickening caught-on-video assault in a hallway at Central Regional High School in Berkeley Township.
The tragic teen’s father, Michael Kuch, told the Daily Mail that hours before her death, one girl who recorded the assault sent her a text mocking her for “dripping blood” and getting her “a– whooped.”
He told the outlet that one of the assailants instigated the brutal attack because she was jealous about Adriana’s friendship with another girl.
Kuch said his daughter also was driven to suicide because she was embarrassed by the footage that spread rapidly on TikTok and Snapchat.
“She was so embarrassed that they jumped her. She would say, ‘I don’t want to be made fun of,’” the devastated dad told the Daily Mail.
“It was like she was attacked twice. It used to be you’d go to school, get bullied and then you left. But now you come home and you keep getting bullied — they still keep picking at you home,” he added.
“I can’t begin to tell you how angry I am at the school, at the police department … if those videos hadn’t been posted, these girls would have ended up with a one-day suspension or in no trouble at all,” the distraught dad said.
“The [school] has done nothing. They should not be in charge of our children’s safety,” added Kuch, who served 22 years in the US Army.
Three girls have been charged with third-degree felony assault and a fourth was charged with disorderly conduct.
