Naika Venant

The mother of a girl who committed suicide on Facebook Live while in foster care may have encouraged her daughter to take her own life.

The Florida Department of Children and Families says Gina Caze was among hundreds of people watching 14-year-old Naika Venant's Facebook livestream video the night she committed suicide in the Miami home of her foster care family.

Naika used a scarf to hang herself from a bathroom doorknob on January 22.

Caze reportedly watched about 2 hours of her daughter's livestream, before writing a post using the name "Gina Alexis":

“#ADHD games played u sad little DCF custody jit that’s why u where u at for this dumb s--- n more u keep crying wolf u dead u will get buried life goes on after a jit that doesn't listen to there parents trying to be grown seeking boys and girls attention instead of her books.”

2 weeks after Naika killed herself, someone reported Caze's post to DCF.

Caze's Facebook post conflicts with the tearful photos of her at a press conference in her lawyer's office, in which she blame DCF for Naika's death.

Caze's attorney disputed the findings in the DCF report, saying the report’s allegations were “absolutely false”. The attorney claimed Caze only wrote the post after her daughter died, and because she thought the livestream video was a fake.

The teenager moved in and out of foster care between 2009 and 2017, according to the NY Daily News. Her mother gave her up in April 2016 saying she no longer wanted the girl.

Naika was reportedly removed from her mother's home after she had been sexually and physically abused.

According to a foster care report, Naika told a counselor she feared she would "age out" of foster care and she would have nowhere else to go.

No charges have been filed against the mother.

    That's crazy

  • Yoni7

    There is a spirit over our children. Going through a similar situation RIGHT NOW JUST LIKE THIS! A (CLOSE) child I know "tried it" Saturday. She's coming home from the hospital TODAY.

  • Dr. P

    A lot of adults who are raised by parents like this turn out like Tommie on LHHA. Wasted tissue and brain cells.

    SMDH......these foster parents are a piece of work. Stop sending monthly assistance and see how many "foster parents" will foster children with their hearts. Most of them do nothing to help the children, they are just checks each month for a majority of them.

  • iWasteTime

    That poor baby. Scared, alone and no one to turn too.
    When your own mother tells you to do it, all hope has to be loss at that moment.
    I hope she's at peace in her fathers arms.

  • Yoni7

    Thank you.

  • RaginB

    I was thinkin the same thing!!

  • SummerBaby

    Hugs & prayers your way. ??

  • E-White B.Sweet KoolAid

    The mother egg donor ain't shit. There's no justification for this.

    There's nothing motherly about her.

  • Buttercup

    Why does Gina write like a teenager? Gina, your daughter was in foster care which most likely means you weren't providing a nurturing environment for her. I guess it would've been too much like right to leave your daughter alone instead of taunting her.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    I don't know I was literally pondering on this too. I think robin williams went the same way.

  • Buttercup

    I was intrigued at this very thing when someone semi-famous or known committed suicide in the same manner. I can't recall who though. I think they sit down instead of walking off/kicking over a chair.

  • SummerBaby

    Since she had been removed from the home because of sexual & physical abuse why was she able to have contact with the mom? I truly don't understand how it works.

  • Buttercup

    I need you to learn the difference in Millennials (Gen Y) and Generation Z. Thanks in advance!

    The devil is going OD out here with all the spiritual warfare going on. Yall better get God in your life, stay prayed up and mindful of your spirit as well. A LOT of evil, wicked people coming out from hiding to help satan kill, steal and destroy

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Idky she was trolling her knowing she was suffering internally---emotionally, spirituality, mentally. She'll get hers.

  • Blak

    I honestly want to tear this bitch a new asshole. I knew her tears were fake the second I seen her mashed up looking face faking it on tv

  • Buttercup

    I wonder what's the root cause? It is the fluoride in the water? I'm not saying that to be funny, but that's the only thing I can think of that reaches so many people.

  • Buttercup

    The news article said the girl had been placed in 14 homes in the past year. Poor thing couldn't even get unpacked good before she was placed in another family's home.

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Pure evil.

  • KDub

    Gina not about shat. Wouldnt get your life together and then gave her away to the system. Then....for whatever reason found her and started harrassing the mess outta her. Special place in hell for folks like you Gina

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Thank U!!!!! U it best, the mom ain't shiit but the way she is acting and for what she posted online, she was never a mother to her child, she is or was nothing but an egg donor to this child who had a lost soul bcuz of neglect and her own blood parents to love, provide, and protect her. May she RIP

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Can't imagine what was going on in that child's mind throughout the shuffle. The turmoil. And for an adult to torment her like that, someone who was supposed to care for her..dare I say parent...and at a time when she's saying she wants to end it all. Pushing her to do it. May she rot.

  • Justlooknout

    This is really disturbing....But not surprising. God Rest that child's soul.

    Something that been bothering me...There are a many seemingly many people that post to this blog with mental issues. I've decided not to go back and forth with them, but just block them. The Devil will not use me as a tool.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    Not just our children but the general populace. Folks are under a trance. Aint no more humanity, folk all narcissistic out here. Hella sad

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    It was after the video and I thought it was a joke.........somehow makes her thinn it is better....Bytch Puh-Leez

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Oh and they reporting she "only wrote it after her daughter died cuz she thought the video was fake." MISS ME.

  • KDub

    You tie it to the door know and lean all the way back or sit down until gravity takes. I ONLY know this bc that is how Mick Jaggers lady LWrenn took her life. Hanging via door knob

  • SummerBaby

    Horrific ?

  • KDub

    It kinda is and I was kinda surprised that people dot com let the explanation as to how its possible sit in the comments section like that

    Disgusting words to come out of a mothers mouth.. idc what the case was!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    This so called mother is dirty. Who encourages their own child to kill themselves. I hope that she is haunted and taunted for the rest of her dirty soulless life. She didnt give a f about her child. Smdh

    RIP to this young girl.

  • Lovezoe

    Prayers for that sweet baby. Kids see so much and can't/aren't allowed to express. They are such kindered spirits. Hugs to y'all.

  • 2brefrank

    I've noticed the same thing, mental issues are real on this blog. I've blocked folks too and lowered my commenting to go pray because I'm convinced folks on here are demon possessed.

  • Lovezoe

    The food. Life. Seeing stuff they shouldn't. Being exposed to grown up mess too soon.

  • Shira Harding-James

    That poor baby! I don't feel like the mother urged her but it could of been the straw that broke the camels back. Just one more disappointment from her mother. I just don't understand how parents can neglect their children and not do right by them, they didn't ask to be here!!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Ok Sandra come back with this type of ish!!??? I'm super pissed that mom need her butt kicked because HER child was in and out from 2009 until her death something ain't right

  • CrunchyBlack1

    It isnt just the obvious ones either. Some of these regs got issues too but they popular so nobody pays it any real attention.

  • 2brefrank

    PREACH!

  • Justlooknout

    Not gonna put demons on folks, but there are SOME real issues and yes, I've gone off several times, I've s0ught solace in prayer.

  • Shira Harding-James

    Right even if you did think the video was fake you still don't say anything like that to anyone especially your daughter

  • SummerBaby

    New post

  • Shira Harding-James

    It's worse actually!!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    The bish didn't think maybe her child wanted her attention!!! Smh I'm gone run on outta this post before I be trying to find this lady on fb

    That foster mammy was sorry AF...The system is sorry AF. Some of these parents sorry AF.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    When you're in tune with yourself, your subconscious does the battling for you. I always wondered how it was so easy for me to sense the wickedness in people without exchanging any words with them. I thank God for that intuition daily.

  • 2brefrank

    SMH. It's sad. I'd say demon possessed, oppressed or severely unhappy with life. One person i blocked finds my comments and says the oddest things to me. Sounds just like something the devil would say. Either way I'm covered and guarded and watchful. I really hope people get the help they so desperately need.

  • SummerBaby

    @KDub explained it in this post. It's horribl??

  • Anunnaki

    "Her mother gave her up in April 2016 saying she no longer wanted the girl."
    Fcking Sad, this is why I took my stepson, WTF is wrong with my Black women. not wanting their kids. I DONT get that, we need a real resolution for ages 12-45..we got problems Black women We GOT PROBLEMS. how did we even get here. we was some of the most honour of all women with our kids, this is so sad..I have lived this and still living it with my stepson, his mom did not want him and told him that.

  • Justlooknout

    Yes, I agree with you on that. YOU are RIGHT, they are possessed with something. JUST HORRIBLE

  • 2brefrank

    My heart aches for foster children. There's just not a lot of help out there for them. Imagining her taking her life live UGH! And, What happened to a mother's love?

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Exactly!!!!!!! smdh ???

  • Justlooknout

    Prayers and covering of blessings and grace over her and those around her. And prayer for those that are her that are if filled with strife and negativity be sent in another direction.

  • Justlooknout

    NO it the water. It's tv, a lack of parenting, coupled with hate.

    It's not political correct to tell anyone when they are wrong.

    "...a press conference in her lawyer’s office, in which she blame DCF for Naika’s death."

    Thanks. I'll ttYl.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    She sure did.

  • Yoni7

    Still NOT following. Now I can see the TOP of the door. I think that's how Robin Williams did it, but the doorknob. I HONESTLY can't see it, even with your explanation.

  • Yoni7

    Right now, I gotta start with MINE/OUR OWN in OUR house/home! Not too much worried about 'OTHER' folks at the moment. #blamesociety

  • CrunchyBlack1

    I feel you folk.

  • XoXo

    I see the way they deflected.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    It took me a minute to understand until I saw some other things like how folks die from sexual asphyxiation. Then, I saw how someone reportedly committed "suicide" from a doorknob in prison. You would think normal reaction to choking would be to fight. That is not always the case, or sometimes people are under the influence. Then, I saw Jagger's lady friend.

    In any case, it's really sad to see.

  • Anunnaki

    Always thanks, She Fck up like my X hubby, 2 fck up people, but believe me they are reaping what they sow.

    I promise you I STILL dont understand either. The knob seems too close to the floor to me.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I understand how you feel about the subject matter tugging at your heart strings. It can be challenging and difficult and I respect your honesty and feelings.

    I still see it as being aware. These things are real. Our children are at stake and someone has to fight for them. If this is to put the public, agency, parents, foster-parents, and other children who are going through the same thing to take notice, then so be it. We can't hide from the truth.

    There are not enough SAFE, CARING homes for these kids.

    I provide service in public and private sector. Some things that most can't stomach, I view on the daily and actually need to stay aware and abreast of certain situations. My goofing off here is actually a balance to the madness.

    My rant. ?

    Lucyism

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    I read in the Miami Herald today that the bio mother would leave her daughter in bedrooms with her adult boyfriends. The little girl once told DCF that one of her mom's boyfriends had her watching "sex movies". My heart hurts.

    Theyneed to make a Getout for black women like her!!!

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    ?...?

  • Libra80sBaby

    Thank you. I read it. STILL confused. But suicide is sad, especially a child. SMH. To give up at THAT young of an age

  • Mrs. B. Y.

    They did. It was called "Precious" lol

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    ? I don't know WHY...nevermind. ?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    YES! There is.

    Prayers for the child, family, those in contact with this child and those who (and do not) support them. I pray everyone gets the help, strength, guidance, stamina, fortitude, and enlightenment their mind, body and soul so deeply needs to sustain, flourish and teach.

    Be a fence...

    the fact that she said it period is messed up whether it's before or after her death

    And if you "can't", get some help or give them to someone who, genuinely, lovingly and honestly, will. Don't let these kids wallow in abuse.

  • Michelle

    This little girl never had a chance with a POS for a mother. She doesn't cry for her dead daughter. She sheds fake tears for the lawsuit she plans to file against DCFS. I don't want to hear "the system failed us"....no, your sorry a@@ failed your kid. She won't get a dime once a Jury hears how she treated that child (including exposing this child to pornography and sexual abuse by her boyfriends). May this piece of s@@t rot in hell.

  • Yoni7

    Thank you.

  • cherrypie

    Her mother gave her up in April 2016 saying she no longer wanted the girl. <--------- Wow! Can you do that?..... It's really sad to hear about the lives of so many young men and women who have been physically and sexually abused, to be taken from your home, placed in foster care, and have your mother "give you up". Then at the age of 14 you decide to end your life. She was only here for 14 years and her life was that bad that she chose to end it. So so very sad!!!

    She is a poor excuse for a mother.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I thought about that chick from LHHA yesterday when she cussed her mother out. I was like damn I ain't never seen that before.

  • Tiffany Miller

    Black parents need to know when to cut it out. Stop provoking your children and competing with them! She deserves whatever they can find to charge her with. If you gave her up, LEAVE HER ALONE!!!! Don't antagonize the situation making it worse. We also have to do better at recognizing that we have mental issues, owning it, and informing our children about it. That way, if we pass down those issues they can get the right help instead of self medicating.

  • yallcrazy

    Thats terrible and sad as hell. That child never stood a chance. The egg donor (cause she ain't no mother) had no business even being able to contact her. These social workers need to get on their jobs

    The feeling some get from a penis outweighs the feeling from being a mother. I loved mothering my son when he was a child. Best time of my life. But I was equipped with good tools when I entered motherhood such as I had a great foundation by seeing my parents' marriage and their friends, lived in a good environment, churched, and educated. But most importantly I knew I was loved.

You don't have to know how to spell or care; just as long as you can make it appear that you can provide three squares a day and a roof, you in. This is awful. That poor baby. May she rest in peace. And as for the bios, I have no doubt the Lord will be to see about y'all, and Case you going down with them.

  • VV

    I just cannot for the life of me understand how a woman cannot love their child. My baby is my reason to live. God bless people like you who are willing and able to love a child who needs a mother. May God bless you in the biggest way! ?

  • the guest

    I knew her mother was a low life ignorant POS.

  • msyellarose

    This is exactly why you should never call a potentially suicidal person's "bluff". How many times have we heard our people say "oh she just wants attention" and dismiss them. Well, they not only do they need attention, but help. They cry out that way because they don't know a way out. It is indeed a cry for help and this child desperately needed it. If someone is considering taking their own life, don't try the so-called "tough love" route, it may backfire. Get a professional to intervene. And quick. I see that her misbehavior was enough for anyone to give up on her, but after suffering the kinds of abuses she di requires some compassion, which is something this woman lacked. So sad.

    THIS!! Tiffany, it is comments like yours that I hope will make us black folks take a damn good look at ourselves and make an attempt to correct our behavior, especially towards our children. The harshness that comes out of our mouths, the vagina envy, the envy for opportunities that exist, the sabotage. I know, I went through it.

  • Allihave2say

    Mom is a sociopath. Children know the difference between a parent who loves them and a parent who just provides a roof over their heads.

    Ain't no telling how much her "mother" bullied her through texts or phone calls, but the courts are too busy prosecuting black guys on weed possession charges. Children should be top priority and unfortunately they're dead last.

  • Malcom Flex

    The mother is your typical mentally ill single mother. She let her bf molest the kid at 6 the kid was in the bed with bf watching sex films yeh I read all the links. Left 30 lashes aka sick azz bp "whoopings" all over her body that's how she lost custody in the first place. Sick bih was faking tears at the press conference couldn't even cry, mentally ill, toxic.

  • Malcom Flex

    Agreed and clearly the mom is mentally ill and I'm guessing, a crack head based on the behavior of letting the kid when she was 6, be in the bed with mom's bf.

  • Malcom Flex

    You noticed the fake tears, too. Bih couldn't even bring water to her eyes that's why she bent over no love for her flesh and blood.

  • Malcom Flex

    The city is going to clap back and mom will get squat she allowed her bf to molest the girl when she was 6

  • Malcom Flex

    Mass fatherlessness. Notice no father mentioned no grandfather mentioned. You cannot raise kids very well without good men in your life, sorry that's true. the mom's bf was a pedo, he molested the kid and mama beat her so bad she got taken away. too many single mothers should have never given birth, mental probs drug addiction no grandfather no husband no good man equals unprotected black girls.
