The family of a Staten Island teen who committed suicide after constant bullying is trying to track down the people who terrorized her.

Amanda Cummings' mother and sister turned to Facebook, asking people to come forward with the names of those that allegedly tormented the 15-year-old and any proof they may have.

"Don't be afraid," Cummings' sister, Dawn Weber, pleaded, adding, "This is killing all of us."

“I am begging you kids, anyone with any concrete proof of bullying toward my sister, please let me know. Please. I need witnesses willing to step forward to make legal statements. Not just kids coming out of the woodwork that want to gossip,” Weber continued.

Their mother, Cecile Weber had harsher words. “this is to all you evil son of a bitches that picked on, talked about and threatened my baby, I HOPE YOU DIE and I HOPE YOU SUFFER,” she wrote.

Cummings died Monday from injuries she suffered after jumping in front of a bus last week. Cops said they found a suicide note in her pocket, and her family said she was bullied and threatened by several people, including a girl who was jealous of Cummings’ relationship with an older boy.
