• Two girls from Florida America aged 12 and 14
years of age have been arrested with the
death of 12 year old girl who committed
suicide after being bullied by the girls.
• The bullying was done online also known as
cyber bullying. On of the post made of
Facebook from one of the girls who were
arrested read she didn’t care about the suicide
of the 12 year old girl Rebecca Sedwick.
Rebecca Ann Sedwick had been terrorized by as many as 15 girls before she
decided to commit suicide.
She decided to commit suicide at a top of a tower at an abandoned concrete
plant and jumped off.
The bullying started over a ‘boyfriend issue’ at Crystal Lake middle school
apparently, but they will never be able to find out the true reason why Rebecca
did what she did.
In December she cut her wrists and was hospitalised for 3 days, after that she
left Crystal Lake Middlesex school but the online bullying still continued
Before she committed suicide she changed one of her online names to ‘That
Dead Girl’ and then messaged a boy in North Carolina that she was going to
jump. After that she climbed a tower and took a leap to her death.
The 15 girls that ganged up on Rebecca had bullied her for nearly a year, picking
on her and cyber bulling her with messages such as “You should die” and “why
don’t you go kill yourself”.
