Two Teens Charged After Girl’s Suicide
A 14-year-old girl and a 12-year-old girl have been charged with aggravated stalking, a third-degree felony, in the suicide of bullied Florida teen Rebecca Sedwick. The charges come after a chilling Facebook post by the older girl, which read “Yes ik [I know] I bullied Rebecca nd and she killed herself but IDGAF [I don’t give a fuck]” and then bizarrely ended with a heart emoticon. According to Sheriff Grady Judd, who is in charge of the case, the Facebook remark was the tipping point in deciding to arrest the girls. “We decided that, look, we can’t leave her out there,” he said about the girl's post. “Who else is she going to torment? Who else is she going to harass?” Sedwick, 12, killed herself in September by jumping from an abandoned factory silo after a year of both face-to-face and online bullying. The younger girl charged had been her best friend.
