14-Year-Old Dies Suddenly, Secret Of Her Double Life Revealed

She was only 14, but her parents discovered she had a whole other life that they didn't know anything about. It was a dark life full of deviant sex, depression and bullying. Now the parents are speaking out in hopes that other parents can learn from their mistakes.

It seemed a normal day in the Sellers home. Sydney Dane Sellers, 14, came home from school. She'd been celebrating her boyfriend’s family and had a few laughs with her parents. She went to her room to wait for dinner. Her mother, Jennifer, went up to call her daughter for dinner. That's when everything went wrong.

Jennifer found Sydney hanging from her neck. She screamed, and her husband Ronnie rushed up to help. He cut his daughter down and performed CPR on her, but it was too late. She was pronounced dead when paramedics arrived.

After their daughter's death, Jennifer and Ronnie Sellers made some horrific discoveries. Mainly, they learned they didn't know their daughter. They knew one side of her - she was an altar girl, a top student and seemed like a happy girl.

Sydney hid a large part of herself away from her parents. She was being bullied so badly she started self-harming months ago. She was depressed. She also had interests in deviant sex practices and had been messaging with adult men on social media. In fact, just before her death by hanging, she was messaging with a man about autoerotic asphyxiation.

"We're both still sitting around like how did this happen?" said Mrs. Sellers. "Her daddy is in law enforcement and her mama's a children's rights attorney. We never held anything back from her."

"I didn't know my child. I knew the part of her that she wanted me to know... But as a parent, it never occurred to me there might be more."

The Sellers are warning parents to be more vigilant, particularly with the social media platforms their children are using. They urge parents to get to know their kids better - it could make all the difference.
