A 31-year-old Italian woman sent her ex-boyfriend a video of her having sex with a new guy. The footage of Tiziana Cantone and her new lover was uploaded on to the internet and went viral last year, pushing Cantone to commit suicide.
She had intended to taunt her ex with the footage, but ultimately it led to her own demise. Cantone was allegedly abused and mocked online for months after the video was shared online. Her friends claim she became extremely depressed by all the negative attention on social media, including people making parodies of the sex tape.
Prosecutors have opened an investigation into her death, and charges may be filed at a later date against those who uploaded and/or shared the video.
