Ashtyn Prosser, a 20-year-old from Ontario, died by suicide after allegedly purchasing a lethal substance from a 57-year-old Toronto-area man. The man faces 14 counts of aiding suicide and is suspected of being linked to over 110 deaths worldwide. Ashtyn’s mother, Kim Prosser, is now fundraising in his memory to support mental health recovery and healing. She hopes to provide resources that could have prevented her son from seeking out the harmful substance. The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on Ashtyn’s mental health, leading to isolation and a decline in academic performance.
