Police investigating after bullied B.C. teen commits suicide
VANCOUVER - RCMP investigators are interviewing those who knew a BC teen suspected of taking her own life after months of bullying.
Sergeant Peter Thiessen says investigators are looking at all areas in the death of 15-year-old Amanda Todd.
He says that includes social media, past conversations, postings, and past actions on social media by anyone who may have come into contact with Amanda.
Thiessen adds that gathering evidence is difficult, and that's why it's important for the public to come forward.
Police have set up an email address for people to send tips.
Thiessen says there are a number of areas within the Criminal Code that could be applied in thid case.
The BC coroner's office says preliminary indications suggest Todd took her own life this week.
Her death came just a month after she posted a haunting video on YouTube describing the repeated cyber and physical bullying she suffered.
