Girl Isn't Accepting Any Responsibility After Prank Leads To Boyfriend's Death

A grieving mother in Michigan wants answers, and maybe even deserves an apology or some condolences from the girl who caused her son's death. She's gotten no response, however, from the girl or the girl's family. The mother is still reeling from the blow.

Katrina Goss lived through an absolute nightmare. The mom came home as usual on March 14 and went upstairs to check on her son, Tysen Benz. When she went into his bedroom, she found the 11-year-old hanging by his neck. She called emergency services and rushed Tysen to the hospital. After three weeks on life support, he passed away.

The most heartbreaking part of the story is the reason for Tysen taking his life. The little boy's girlfriend orchestrated a sick prank on social media. The 13-year-old girl had her friends spread the false story that she was dead.

The girl pretended to kill herself, then enlisted friends to confirm the lie for Tysen. “She had pranked her own death. I don't know what possessed her to do such a weird prank. It's a twisted, sick joke," said Goss on 'The Dr. Phil Show' on Monday.

Goss says that the girl has not reached out to her yet, has not tried to apologize and didn't even show up at Tysen's funeral. She learned that the day after the horrible prank gone wrong, the girl turned up to school like nothing had happened. She also learned that the girl knew Tysen threatened to hurt himself.

"He either said, 'I'm going to hurt myself' or 'I'm going to kill myself.' I don't think she did say it was a joke or anything, I don't think she tried to quickly — like I said, she didn't try to reach out to me, she didn't tell another adult."

The girl's parents, likewise, have clammed up and have not bothered to even offer condolences or apologies for their daughter's role in Tysen's death. They have ducked the media and refused to speak publicly about the ordeal.

The teen has been charged with malicious use of telecommunication services and using a computer to commit a crime.
