Two girls have been arrested in the death of a 12-year-old central Florida girl who authorities say committed suicide after being bulled online by several girls for nearly a year, a sheriff said Tuesday.
The girls are 12 and 14, and they have been charged with felony aggravated stalking, according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities have said Rebecca Sedwick was “terrorized” by as many as 15 girls who ganged up on her and picked on her for months through online message boards and texts. Some of the girls’ computers and cellphones were seized in the investigation.
On Sept. 9, authorities say, Rebecca climbed a tower at an abandoned concrete plant and hurled herself to her death.
There is NO justification for bullying someone, and especially to the point where they wouldn’t want to live anymore. These girls should really feel horrible.
