Before jumping to her death, the unnamed girl ran a poll on her Instagram account asking her followers if she should commit suicide. The poll read, “Really Important, Help Me Choose D/L,” the D and L standing for death or life.
The girl reportedly jumped off of a rooftop in Sarawak, Malaysia, according to district police chief Aidil Bolhassan.
“We are conducting a post-mortem to determine whether there were other factors in her death,” Bolhassan told Reuters.
The Instagram poll showed that 69% of the girl’s followers choose “D” or death before she killed herself, Bolhassan said.
