Two girls were arrested for the death of a Florida girl following her suicide provoked from bullying. CBS News reports Oct. 15 that a 14-year-old and 12-year-old girl were arrested and charged with felony aggravated stalking. One of them admitted to harassing 12-year-old, Rebecca Ann Sedwick. Rebecca committed suicide last month by leaping off the top of an abandoned concrete factory tower.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd one of the two girls arrested in the Florida girl's death -- the 14-year-old -- happened because they were afraid she would continue cyberbullying other girls. She is accused of threatening to beat up 12-year-old Rebecca, telling her "to drink bleach and die," and adding that she should "kill herself."
The 14-year-old allegedly wrote a post on her Facebook page that she didn't care that Rebecca killed herself. She denies the allegations, saying someone hacked into her account.
Judd said that the bullying began after the 14-year-old began seeing a boy that Rebecca had been seeing.
She "didn't like that and began to harass and ultimately torment Rebecca," Judd said.
Besides the two girls arrested for the Rebecca's bullying, there are suspected to be another 15 girls responsible for bullying her as well.
The two Florida girls were arrested Monday night then released to their parents' custody. The report said they remain on home detention.
