November 21, 2008: Justin.TV Online Suicide of Abraham Biggs
2008 – Some watched in horror. Others watched thinking it was a joke. Still, Abraham Biggs was a troubled teen. He decided to end it all and do it in front of a live audience. He got on Justin.tv and told people he was taking sleeping pills. After a little while, he went to lie on his bed while the chat room continued on. Some posts encouraging him to continue were seen. Of course, in the end, Abraham Biggs could not be saved.
Justin.tv closed its doors in August 2014
