By day, the Alabama 14-year-old was an honors student, a taekwondo black belt and a loving daughter who served in the family church.

But at night, she stayed up to have kinky online chats with strangers, struggled with self-cutting and was victimized by merciless school bullies, her mother said.

A day after Sydney died, one of the three sent another haunting message: “I'm so sorry you did that. I love you.” “I don't think she understood these were grown men and they were grooming her,” Sellers said.

The family went to church together filled in the morning — Sydney’s first mass serving as an altar girl — and the 14-year-old spent the afternoon with her boyfriend to celebrate his birthday while the Sellers ran family errands.

Sellers started reading her daughter’s last messages, part of a conversation that was ongoing when the teen died.
