Crockett, JoelName: Joel Thomas Crockett Devine.
Died: April 26, 2019.
Age at death: 19.
Cause of death: Suicide (Hanged self; bullying-related).
Location: Liverpool, England, UK.

Joel was a Liverpool football fan. He liked drama, and was a talented actor. At school he was popular, though he didn’t know it; his approachable personality, innocence, and good looks won people over despite his learning disabilities and autism.

Joel initially decided on a drama course at university, but switched to sports science and was set to begin the sports science course the next fall.

Things turned bad for Joel when someone from school leaked nude pictures of him online, and bullies started circulating them. They blackmailed Joel into buying them games and giving them money. Joel became depressed, increasingly quiet and sad.

After long-term intense bullying, Joel committed suicide by hanging.
