There was an outpouring of condolences on social media following the suicide of a BC teenager. Amanda Todd died October 10th at the age of 15 after trying to cope with relentless bullying and telling her story in an online video. Coroner Barb McClintock said it appeared to be part of a growing trend. (The 15-year-old said she was lured by an unidentified male to expose her breasts via webcam and the image ended up online. She said that caused her to plunge into anxiety, major depression, drugs and alcohol.)
