Teenage couple commit suicide after leaving suicide note on social media (video/photos)

A teenage couple from Cincinnati, Ohio have committed suicide just days apart and it turns out they left suicide notes and a video on social media before carrying out the act.

18-year-old Mercedes Shaday Smith and 17-year-old Markeice "Mari" Brown had been known as a couple, so when Mercedes killed herself in her dorm room at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky last Thrusday,
her friends believed Mari contributed to his girlfriend's suicide so they harrassed him online because of it. The harrassment, along with the grief of losing Mercedes, drove Mari to take his life on Saturday.

Mari shared a note and a farewell video on Facebook Live before committing suicide. It can be gleaned from Mari's suicide note that Mercedes was pregnant at the time of her death and they had plans to "go out together.". He also revealed in the note that her family would not let him go to her funeral so he decided to go and see her in the afterlife.

A number of Facebook commenters have referred to their story as a modern day Romeo and Juliet tale, while others have posted tributes, saying they were inseperable and no one could fill the space Mercedes' demise left in Mari's heart so he joined her and they are now inseperable.

Below are more photos of the couple, the suicide note and video that Mari shared on Facebook.

In as much as I feel sorry for the guy from his video, can't help but see the foolishness in all of these, if you were not the cause of her suicide then why take your own life, regardless of who's blaming you for it, there are too many fragile and weak people in the world today who need to be brought up strong, you are less than twenty and can't take it no more, what have you seen in life, wasted lifes, I'm really angry at both of for this foolishness

We will make our collective statements come 2019 with our Votes. We will make sure we put a Stop to the Re-circle method of those Old Unproductive Leadership style, we will ensure that No ex-Governor contests and win any election in our Country Nigeria even if it is an ordinary ward Councilorship not to talk of Senatorship or even Presidency. Enough of this re-circulation of these Un productive, Un patriotic and Un Godly verrrrrrrry Few Amongst us. Even me if I ever Contest for any Political/ Leadership Position Don't Vote for me because I know I don't have the Qualities to Lead Politically because Iam too Temperamental and Emotional, which is not good at all for any Leader. but There are Millions of Nigerians out there that have got all that it takes to Lead us to the Promise Land, please let us as a People Identify them where ever they are, even if they are in Diaspora and ensure that they are our Next Generation of Leaders. irrespective of their Tribal, Religious, Gender, Ethnic, Political,Educational, Health, or even Economic Status or Affiliation etc.

Who told him he would see the girlfriend at death?
See eh....
It's for moments like this that all those motivational and your Bible are exceptionally needed!
Equip yourselves with the word of God.
No matter what you are going through, God's got you.
If you believe.
Your moment of trials will bring out the best in you.
There are lessons to learn from hard times.
If only these youths were equipped with the Gospel.
Only if.

And they are beautiful. misguided youths who do not appreciate or value the beautiful life they have. Next time you're coming back to the world come to Nigeria and see youths your age sleeping under the bridges and doing bus conductors. Suicide has suddenly become a plaything to be toyed with to the extent that its recorded on video and even streamed on social media.

you don't thank God for the life He gave you. Come to Nigeria and see youths whose futures have been stolen by greedy old politicians suffering and still smiling and hailing the politicians who stole their futures.

you're entitled to your opinion, but you sound ignorant as fuck. you don't know them, you don't know what they've went through. you don't understand what was going through their heads and i've felt pain before, and i can only imagine what that man was feeling when he found out his girl killed herself and on top of that getting so much shit for it like people ain't even let this man recover. what he lost was something hard to replace.
