The analysis of the phone and recovery of the video are on.

The video of the woman’s suicide had an estimated 1,000 views. The video is no longer available on the app but excerpts from it have been circulated on the Internet. The woman allegedly informed one of her close relations about her intentions by an SMS a few minutes before her death.She also made statements to Internet users on Periscope and gave an explanation for her act.

The woman had also filmed herself in her flat previously where she was discussing how she intended to create a video warning younger viewers to discontinue watching the video of the shocking act.
