The harassment continues. After the suicide of Lindsay, which caused a shockwave Vendin-le-Vieil (Pas-de-Calais), on social networks and up to the Ministry of National Education, her best friend Maïlys, 13, also a victim of daily school bullying, testifies. The young woman has been out of school since the death of her friend Lindsay, a little more than three weeks ago: "Maïlys is not well".
Maïlys experienced the harassment alongside Lindsay who committed suicide on May 12, a few days before her fourteenth birthday. "At the beginning of the year, in September, they began to have insults mockery," says her mother to the microphone of BFMTV.

"The girls told us about it and we told them to take it upon themselves, not to respond to their attacks," recalls the mother. But "It's been getting worse and worse." "We threw coke at them", we "started rumors" and after mockery: "The girls were fed up"
"Whether it's during the day or at night, I get messages while I'm in my corner." (...) "She makes TikTok videos saying she's going to send me back to the hospital," Maïlys told CNews, referring to one of her harassers. The teenager would have been beaten last summer, in a scene filmed and Maïlys and Lindsay did not let themselves do it. "They wanted to defend themselves and go and complain at the level of the establishment that did nothing for them."

The girl and her mother filed a complaint. Four complaints have been filed by Lindsay's family against the head of the facility, as well as against police officers and Facebook France, which owns Instagram, for "failure to assist a person in danger". As part of the investigation into the death of the girl, four minors were indicted for "school bullying leading to suicide" and an adult was indicted for "death threats". All were placed under judicial control.
