snopes on the scene: Izabel Laxamana

Published Jun 7, 2015

As part of our ongoing investigation into the reported shaming-related death of Izabel Laxamana, we paid a visit to a memorial site for her in Tacoma and spoke with various persons on hand to pay their respects who claimed to have known Izabel.

Although we haven't been able to confirm the information, multiple sources told us that she had been riding in a car with her grandmother immediately prior to jumping off the 48th Street overpass across Interstate 5. (If true, that might explain why she went off the overpass on the side of the street that required scaling a chain link fence, rather than on the other side where no such barrier existed.)

David Mikkelson founded the site now known as back in 1994.
