The fashionista suicide of Ashley Riggitano is all over the news Friday, and many are saying that online feuding and bullying both to and from the young girl may be to blame. Ashley Anne Riggitano jumped from the George Washington Bridge on Wednesday, her 22nd birthday. The New York Post shared the latest details on Feb. 8.
Sources indicate that the fashionista suicide victim, Ashley Riggitano, left a long handwritten note that specifically excluded five women from attending her funeral. The excluded women were primarily friends and classmates, but it seems their on-and-off again relationships left them in Riggitano's bad graces as she leapt to her death.
The young woman left the note in a Louis Vuitton bag that she left on the walkway Wednesday afternoon just before jumping to her death. Sources indicate Klonopin and Adderall along with other prescription drugs were also found in the bag.
Some of the women named in the suicide note were stunned to be banned from the funeral, while others say that Riggitano was hardly the innocent in all of the social media bashing that had been happening. At this point detectives are investigating the claims that bullying was involved in the fashionista suicide.
Ashley Anne Riggitano previously designed for Alex Woo, a jewelry designer, who says she was there for just a few weeks and at times behaved erratically. From the sounds of the details available thus far, there is plenty of blame to place in terms of what led to the fashionista suicide, and perhaps this can be a lesson to some of how out of control things can get in social media battles.
