A SCHOOLGIRL killed herself after chatting on a suicidal chatroom on the dark web. Leilani Clarke, 16, felt like she had "no hope" after receiving disappointing mock GCSE results - turning to the internet's underworld that preys on the vulnerable, an inquest was told. The night before the teen's death, Leilani had spoken to her mother about her results at their Bournemouth, Dorset, home - heading upstairs and logging into the dark online chatroom. The next morning, she was found dead. Giving evidence at the inquest, mum Bonnie said: "I have no idea how she found it but a 16-year-old girl should not have been on a website like that. "I'd had words with her that night about her exam results and she took herself off to her bedroom after dinner. "When I went to bed I put my head in the door and said goodnight but got no response. "I very rarely told her off and just assumed she was being a teenager." She said it wasn't until the next morning that she checked on her daughter, finding … [Read more...] about Schoolgirl killed herself after accessing ‘suicide chatroom’ on the dark web following mock GCSE disappointment
