Already posted yesterday but still is very sad! These kids should be monitored by their parents and the line of communication between them should be continuously open.

if i had young in this present day, i would be watching them like a HAWK.
We really need to be vigilant as to what our children are doing and protect them as much as we can.
A terrible waste of a young life, and it saddens me, Bless her

This is very sad and scary. Hopefully the people/person who started all this will be found and reprimanded.

Bullying has to stop, but until now we, society nor parents, seem not to have found the way to achieve this end.

I'm not saying that YOUR children bully (can we ever be sure?), but those who do bully have parents.

Poor girl.

Thanks for posting.

why didn't they press charges when they beat her and tossed her in a ditch?
