Girl, 13, slipped and fell to death while begging boy to delete sex tape
A sexually abused 13-year-old girl slipped to her death in a “ghastly accident” and did not intend to kill herself, a coroner has said.
Chevonea Kendall-Bryan was begging a teenage boy to delete a sex tape of her being abused when she plunged 60ft from her bedroom window in Battersea, the inquest heard.
Coroner Bernard Richmond QC told Westminster coroner’s court that he believed Chevonea was leaning out of the window to convince the boy, known as E6, that she would jump if he did not erase the mobile phone footage but that she never intended to follow her threat through.
The inquest previously heard that Chevonea, who self-harmed, was the victim of school bullying.
