The heartbroken mother of a year-old straight-A student who took her own life weeks after filming an amateur porn has revealed their final conversation and spoken out about the vicious bullying her daughter suffered.

The chemistry student then texted her mother 'I just want to die' in a message tragically she didn't see before it was too late, she told MailOnline. Alyssa Funke decided to take part in a sex video with a stranger in Las Vegas for website CastingCouch-X, using the name 'Stella Ann,' as a way of covering college expenses, her mother said - but she couldn't deal with the relentless bullying from former high school classmates that it resulted in.
