A 13-year-old Texas girl died on the morning of April 24, 2019 after she was beat by girls that attended her middle school.The girl identified as Kashala Francis was on life support after the attack. Kashala was just in 7th grade.
On April 18, 2019 Kashala came home bruised and said she was jumped after leaving Attucks Middle School in Houston, Texas. Kashala said two girls attacked her and a third joined them, kicking her in the head several times.
The beating was captured on cellphone video. In a dazzle of ghetto stupidity, many other students just stood and laughed at the fight, repeatedly hollering "World Star".
After complaining of headaches, Kashala became unresponsive on April 21 and was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital. Doctors found a tumor in the back of her head that the family wasn’t aware of. There was also fluid build-up in Kashala's brain.
Investigators are waiting for the results of an autopsy to determine what role the injuries Kashala suffered during the fight might have had in her death.
The school district said in a statement:
“Off-campus events that preceded the student’s death are being investigated by the Houston Police Department, and the school district is cooperating.”
