3 Girls Suspended For Fatal Fight At Delaware High School, Amy Joyner-Francis’ Family Releases Statement

Three girls involved in the fatal fight at Howard High School of Technology that claimed the life of 16-year-old Amy Joyner-Francis have been suspended according to New Castle County Vo-Tech School District spokeswoman Kathy Demarest.

Amy was beaten to death last Thursday morning (April 21) in the high school restroom in what is believed to be a fight over a boy. The deadly assault was captured on cellphone video.

Wilmington Police Chief Bobby Cummings says charges will be filed in the case, possibly by the end of the week.

Following Amy Joyner-Francis’ tragic death, there has been an outpouring of love, prayers, and support for her family. Unfortunately, there has also been multiple scammers taking to the internet with fake fundraisers and GoFundMe accounts with the intent of capitalizing off of the Joyner family’s devastating loss.

The family issued the following statement through the Wilmington Police Department:

I would like to start by saying my family is a private family and are very hurt from this loss, we appreciate the outpouring of love from everyone and thank you all for the warm words towards my sister. I mainly want to address media and social media in this statement. We are seeing many sick people out in the world who want to gain money and social fame off my family’s loss of Amy. We want everyone who is truly concerned for us not to fall victim to the scams going on out around the Internet. I am the only one on social media, any other family (her mother, father, or brothers) do not have accounts. She does not have a sister as someone is claiming to be. All others will be fake. We have not set up and will not set up any fundraisers or go fund me accounts, they are fake pages and accounts are spreading hateful lies, so please do not lose your money or entertain the lies of these cruel people.

Anyone who would like to make donations can in Amy’s name to the Congo Funeral Home in Wilmington.

Thank you all for your love and support to my family in this time.


Anthony Joyner
