    It's not clear what it was over.  I haven't seen any evidence yet that she believed she was a victim or was traumatized by this relationship.  What if she was traumatized not by the relationship, but by the legal case being made of it?  

    She didn't kill herself until the case was ready to go to trial.

    I think the most important thing in these cases is often to listen to the child.  That maybe becomes harder if you believe she has no capacity for judgement.  Did she want this case to go forward?
