Two Florida girls, ages 12 and 14, were arrested on Oct. 14, 2013, in connection with the bullying and harassing of Rebecca Sedwick, 12, who killed herself in September, according to KABC 7.
The arrests came after the older girl took to her Facebook page on Saturday, noting she bullied Rebecca, but didn’t care.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told the Associated Press that after the disturbing post, “We decided we can’t leave her out there. Who else is she going to torment, who else is she going to harass?”
Rebecca jumped to her death on Sept. 9, after climbing the tower of an old concrete plant.
KABC reports that investigators believe as many as 15 girls were bullying Rebecca.
Authorities say the 14-year-old is accused of threatening to beat up Rebecca while the two were in sixth grade and also told her she should kill herself by drinking bleach.
According to KABC, police say the older girl convinced the 12-year-old to bully Rebecca and eventually beat her up.
The girls are currently on home detention after being arrested Monday night and then released to their parents.
Judd called the 14-year-old, “very cold,” saying she showed “no emotion at all upon her arrest,” reports KABC.
He noted that if authorities are able to bring charges against the girls’ parents, “we will.”
