Two Teens Charged in Girl's Suicide, Charged with Stalking

POLK COUNTY, FL-- Investigators says the suspect posted: "Yes I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself but IDGAF (I don't give a (expletive))"
POLK COUNTY, FL-- The Polk County Sheriff's Office announced Tuesday morning it had made two arrests in connection to the suicide death of 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick. Two girls, ages 12 and 14, have been charged with aggravated stalking.


Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said a social media post by the 14-year-old suspect at 1 a.m. Saturday led to the arrests. Judd says the suspect posted on Facebook: "Yes I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself but IDGAF (I don't give a (expletive))"

"We can't leave her out there. Who else is she going to torment? Who else is she going to harass?" Judd said of the suspect.

According to the police report, the suspect said her Facebook account got hacked and she didn't make the post. The bullying started after a physical confrontation between the 14-year-old suspect and Sedwick over a boy at Crystal Lake Middle School, according to Judd.

The boy was Sedwick's former boyfriend and the suspect's current boyfriend.
