Cyberbullying – Tragic Consequences Megan Meier, 13, began receiving nasty messages from a boy after a few weeks of an online flirtation with him via her My. Space account, ending with one that suggested “the world would be a better place” without her. Megan, believing she had been rejected by "Josh, " committed suicide in her home. Six weeks after Megan’s death, her parents learned that "Josh Evans" never existed. He was an online character created by Lori Drew, then 47, who lived four houses down the street and was the mother of one of Megan's former friends. In a highly unusual use of a federal law generally employed in computer fraud cases, a federal grand jury indicted Ms. Drew in May 2008 on charges that she had used a phony online identity to trick and taunt Megan. She pled not guilty to the charges and the case went to trial in November 2008. http: //www. youtube. com/watch? v=HFsf. DLCkf. QU http: //www. meganmeierfoundation. org/media/
