Shane Evans, the coroner with the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office confirmed to PEOPLE that they responded to a reported suicide call on Tuesday, while Raheem Alla, Dazharia’s father, also confirmed her death in a video on TikTok, saying, “I just want to thank everyone for their love and support of my daughter”.
Alongside a montage of photographs of them together, Raheem added, “Unfortunately she is no longer with us and has gone to a better place. My daughter Dazharia has left us early and has been called up to fly with the angels. She was my little best friend and I wasn’t prepared in no way, to bury my child”, and later revealed that his “little jelly bean” had sadly suffered with mental health issues.
