Amanda Todd, 15, committed suicide on October 10, 2012 as a result of severe bullying. Todd had posted a video on YouTube in which she used a series of flash cards to tell of her experience of being blackmailed, bullied and physically assaulted prior to her death. She was frequently teased for her low grades, failed suicide attempts, and for a topless photo that became viral in 7th grade.
Rebecca Ann Sedwick, 12, died on September 9, 2013 after going to an abandoned concrete plant, climbing a tower, and jumping to her death. Sedwick had been cyberbullied for two years by as many as 15 girls over a "boyfriend issue." Authorities are investigating evidence to charge the girls in what appears to be the nation's latest deadly cyberbullying case.
