During the fight, Mejia hit her head on a stall and collapsed. She attended classes for days despite a headache.

Four days later, she fainted at a party, and a friend rushed her to the hospital, where she never regained consciousness.

Single mother Maria Juarez shared her daughter’s struggles with bullying at a South Los Angeles school. Mejia frequently returned home bruised, leading Juarez to report the injuries to school officials and campus police, who, she says, ignored her concerns.

The investigation into Shaylee Mejia’s death continues, including claims she fell down stairs. Principal Alejandro Macias offered condolences, noting the loss’s deep effect on her family, friends, and teachers.

Following the tragedy, a GoFundMe campaign was set up to cover Juarez’s funeral costs. The page echoes the community’s sorrow, urging support to help lay Shaylee to rest, highlighting the profound impact of her loss.

The ongoing investigation raises concerns about school safety and anti-bullying efforts. Shaylee Mejia’s death mourns a family and sparks debate on schools’ duty to safeguard students and prevent such tragedies.
