Submission + - Adult MySpace User Drives Teen To Suicide (stltoday.com)

An anonymous reader writes: A young girl from Dardenne Prairie, Missouri, met who she thought was a sympathetic boy on MySpace. However, things turned ugly when her "boyfriend" suddenly turned on her, spreading nasty rumors and eventually telling her, "Everybody in O'Fallon knows how you are. You are a bad person and everybody hates you. Have a shitty rest of your life. The world would be a better place without you," and driving the girl to suicide. However, her parents were later shocked to discover that he boy had never existed — he was the online persona of a neighbor and family friend, who was using the fake MySpace profile to see what people were saying about her daughter. The daughter was a former friend of the suicide victim.
