    Nik Stryminski remembers her as the one who kept him safe and out of a fight earlier this school year... “She wasn’t worried about herself. She was worried about me not fighting,” he said. “She didn’t believe in fighting, and the craziest thing is she died in a fight.”

    Amy died Thursday morning at Howard High School during a violent attack in the girls bathroom. Wilmington Police have not announced the cause of her death or any details related to the attack.

    Stryminski believes Amy went into the bathroom with the same mindset that she brought to his conflict, he said. “It’s not even like she went in there to fight. She went in there to talk things out,” he said.

    Girl, 16, Dies After Fight in a High School Restroom in Delaware

    Girl, 16, Dies After Fight in a High School Restroom in Delaware

    A 16-year-old girl died after a fight with other students in a high school restroom in Delaware, spurring an outpouring of grief and soul-searching on social media on Thursday.

    The victim, a 10th grader from New Castle, Del., who attended the Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, was in a girls’ restroom on the main floor at about 8:15 a.m., just as classes began, the school said in a statement.

    “A few female students were involved in a physical altercation,” and the victim was seriously hurt, the school said. She was taken by helicopter to Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, where she died. No weapons were involved in the fight, officials said.

    Friends said Amy Inita Joyner-Francis went into the bathroom at Howard High School of Technology around 8 a.m. Thursday. About a half hour later, the 16-year-old was taken out on a stretcher and flown to A.I. duPont Hospital for Children, where she later died.
    Dawkins and Kayla Sutrell, also 16, said they talked to Amy Wednesday night and said Amy told them she was going into the bathroom on Thursday to “settle the beef.” Though they did not elaborate about the dispute, they did say it did not involve boys.

    Police are currently at Gunning Bedford HS as allegedly someone brought a gun to school in retaliation. LE all over the place. This is nuts and out of control. IMO

    The girls who killed Amy have been running their mouths on social media. Some of them are saying they're glad they killed her and are "not losing sleep" over it.

    Three teenage girls have been charged in connection with the death of another girl after a fight in a high school bathroom.

    One student has been charged with criminally negligent homicide and two other students were charged with third-degree criminal conspiracy for allegedly helping to plan the deadly April 21 attack on Amy Joyner-Francis, according to a statement released by the Delaware Department of Justice.

    (...)

    Officials also revealed Monday that Joyner-Francis died from a "cardiac incident" related to a pre-existing heart condition

    So I haven't been able to determine a motive, except "it's not a boy". Apparently she died after being beaten and her undiagnosed heart condition was a major contributing factor lessening the possible charges and prison sentences against her attackers.

    Has a motive been determined?

    It's being reported, the Medical examiner has determined she died from a preexisting heart condition exacerbated by the fight. The injuries she recieved in the fight were not life threatening. Poor girl died from a heart attack

    According to the report, her preexisting heart condition was not only a contributing factor it is the cause of death. None of the actual injuries from the beating itself were life threatening. However, I think the girl who hit her can and will still be charged the same. Had she not struck Amy repeatedly, she would still be alive. It's a given if you beat someone in the face and head, you could kill them and in this case it caused Amy to have a heart attack from the stress. She will still be tried as an adult for on some level of criminal homicide.
