What a nice suburban story... not.

When I hear about things like these, it becomes less and less difficult to understand how some kids grow up into the ·%$"%" they become.  I suppose you can get all sensationalist and blame the Internet, or Myspace, when the truth is that the mother that created the hoax has the ethics of a vulture on cocaine. It's just appalling to think that an adult would think it's "ok" to bully a 13-year-old kid, but hey, she had "reasons"!!

MySpace hoax victim’s kin seek justice - TODAY: People -
The parents of a 13-year-old Missouri girl who hanged herself after a failed MySpace romance — later uncovered as a hoax — say they have yet to receive an apology from the family they blame for their daughter’s death.

“They’ve absolutely offered no apologies,” Ron Meier told TODAY co-host Matt Lauer on Monday. “They sent us a letter in the mail, basically saying that they might feel a little bit of responsibility, but they don’t feel no guilt or remorse or anything for what they did.”

(...) After the two girls had a falling out, the mother invented a 16-year-old boy, “Josh Evans,” created a MySpace account for him, and made Megan believe he was new in town and thought she was cool. (...)And then the boy turned on Megan, leading a campaign of vilification and online name-calling that ended when Megan took her own life.
