(Scroll down for video) A teenager of Utah, who reached out to her friend when she was feeling down, did not get the support she needed, but instead, she was encouraged and received help to take her own life.

Police said that the 16-year-old girl reached out to 18-year-old Tyerell Przybycien, when she was feeling suicidal.

Przybycien offered to help the girl take her life by hanging. Police found a receipt, showing that Przybycien bought material that the girl used to commit suicide.

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office said that the girl from Spanish Fork, was found hanging from a tree near Maple Lake Campground in Payson Canyon at around 7:00 a.m. on Saturday.

Przybycien soon showed up at the scene during the investigation and told deputies to look at the girl’s cell phone.

There they found a video of her lasts moments before she died.
Przybycien admitted to police that he recorded the death. He allegedly admitted to helping the girl set up the noose.

During the 10 minute video, the girl was seen with the noose around the neck. She then inhaled a can of aerosol while standing on a rock.

When she passed out and could no longer support herself, she was hanged. Przybycien recorded the death and never assisted the girl.

“He disclosed to investigators that he had a fascination with death, and he wanted to see someone die,” said Utah County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Spencer Cannon.

Przybycien was arrested, and he faces charges of murder and reckless endangerment. His bail has been set at $20,000 cash only.
