Mom: Teen kills herself after rape, bullying in Canada

April 10, 2013 2:09:55 AM PDT
A Canadian woman says her 17-year-old daughter committed suicide after one of four boys who raped her took a photo of the assault and posted it online.

Leah Parsons says her daughter was bullied and became deeply depressed after the photo went viral.

Police concluded there were no grounds to charge the boys. Seventeen-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons was taken off life-support Sunday after hanging herself last week.
