“IF YOU’RE READING this, I’ve already killed myself.”. Eden Knight, a transgender 23-year-old who studied and briefly resided in the United States before returning to a Saudi Arabian family who, according to her, did not recognize her gender identity, writes these words in her suicide note.
Knight’s friends and the larger trans community are clamoring for justice on social media, claiming that her demise was the result of a callous international plot to put her in peril and drive her back into the closet.
To symbolize how she brightened the lives of those close to her, many Twitter users have added the outlined sun or “brightness” emoji to their handles. Her boundless good humor, unwavering support, and desire to become a leader in the trans rights movement were all testified to in tributes.
Eden Knight’s Suicide Letter
Her family reportedly hired “fixers” and a lawyer with a Washington, DC, office to help with her return to Saudi Arabia, according to the post that Knight shared.
If you’re reading this, I’ve already killed myself, Knight wrote in her message. Following the news, a second Tweet purportedly from Eden Knight’s family reported the passing of a “young man” who shared Knight’s legal name.
Their friends also claimed that they would be unable to reach her for 32 hours. Additionally, some of them think she disappeared.
Despite the fact that her death has been reported, police have not been able to locate her body, raising the possibility that she committed suicide.
On March 12, she posted a message with her farewell words. She frequently felt insecure about her demeanor and appearance as a whole.
She was tricked into traveling to Saudi Arabia, where she subsequently realized what had happened and realized she was constantly under pressure.
At the conclusion, Knight stated that she had finished battling and sent a thank-you note to her friend who had assisted her while she was a resident of the United States.
In addition to the Al-Shathri family, the Americans who allegedly paid to split up Knight from Bailee’s safe and loving chosen family in Georgia have also angered her community as a result of Knight’s death. In her own TwitLonger entry, Bailee stated her conviction that Knight was deceived by the agents of the US security firm who spoke with her, writing, “I feel disgusted by the magnitude of their betrayal.”
