Michael Kuch, the father of 14-year-old Adriana Kuch, who passed away after a video of her being attacked by a group of girls was posted online, believes that bullying was the cause of his daughter’s death on Feb 3.
Adriana, a student at Central Regional High School in Berkeley Township, NJ, was found dead at home two days after a video emerged of her being punched, kicked, and hit with a water bottle by her assailants as she walked with her boyfriend in a school hallway.
In response to the attack, Michael Kuch shared images of the assault on Facebook and expressed his outrage at the Ocean County school district for not calling the police or filing a report.
“These 4 girls planned and executed an attack. If you watch the videos I have, they are laughing while talking about what they are going to do,” He added to a Facebook post, emphasizing that the school did not handle to situation. He stated “had to take my daughter covered in blood to the local police station.”
He argued that the school should have done more. “If the school contacted the police and filed a report and conducted an investigation, these videos could have been discovered immediately,” he penned.
He concluded “I want the entire world to know what these animals did to my daughter. I will not sleep until their family has to watch them stand in front of a judge and plead guilty .”
Kuch demanded that the Ocean County school district take responsibility for the harassment and bullying Adriana endured for a lengthy period.
He also called out the school policy of not suspending the students and pressing charges, as well as the fact that Adriana had been bullied for a long time.
He concluded that he wanted to see justice. Adding, “I want the entire world to know what these animals did to my daughter. I will not sleep until their family has to watch them stand in front of a judge and plead guilty .”
According to News 12 New Jersey, three young girls have since been accused of committing a third-degree felony assault, while a fourth girl has been charged with disorderly conduct.
