"you seriously deserve to die"
The bullied girl gave up on herself, Judd said. "Rebecca wasn't attacking back. She appeared to be beat down."
Rebecca's suffering was no secret at her school. Teachers saw her in tears. There were fights, the sheriff said. In December, she was hospitalized after slitting her wrists.
Her school started a campaign against bullying, giving talks before the student body to discourage it.
The night before her deadly plunge, she sent a message to a boy she met on Facebook: "I'm jumping. I can't take it anymore."
The girl's defense
The attorney for the 14-year-old stands by her father's alibi.
Her client isn't responsible for the controversial post that led to her arrest, said Andrea DeMichael. The teenager has insisted to her that, "This is not as clear-cut as it seems."
The 14-year-old's parents said they regularly check the online activity of their seven children, including their teenage girl's.
"I always check her Facebook. I know her password," Vosburg concurred on "New Day." She didn't see any vile messages. "If they're there, we didn't see it," she said.
But aside from that one incriminating message after Rebecca's death, the taunts reached her through other chat services, the sheriff said.
Her parents shook their heads and gave blank stares when asked about the other sites during the interview.
They never heard of them.
"The only one that she had was Facebook, to our knowledge," the father said.
DeMichael disputed there was any harassment.
She said the 14-year-old and Rebecca did have a falling-out over the boy, and there was some "back and forth" at school between the former friends, but the girl never threatened Rebecca.
"She was actually upset at what happened to the victim," DeMichael said.
The 14-year-old's parents agreed.
