Oh my god, dude.  I am incredibly sorry for you and your sister and the entire family.  That is truly one of the worst possible things anyone should have to go through.  I commend your ability to deal with that because I don't know how I possibly could.

Something else that I love about this place...we all occasionally bicker and argue about these adults getting lots of money to play a game and sometimes it gets ugly, but whenever the darker side of reality hits in the worst ways, EVERYONE in here immediately casts that aside and offers to help in any way possible...even those who don't necessarily post it would still do it, I have no doubts about that whatsoever.  Good people in here.  Love you guys.

This is as bad as it gets..............there are no words to convey that will abate your grief. I am so sorry.  

Please tell me that there is an active and strong investigation by the local authorities. You described a serious crime and I hope the locals are looking into this.

If not, you'd better get on the horn with them and push it.

Yeah. 

What's frustrating is that the mom of another kid in Will's team was also caught the same way a few weeks prior. He was with people when it happened so they were able to calm him down and he told his mom and she went to the cops but was turned down by the secretary who just said "just report it and thats all you can do. He's not the first and won't be the last". And wouldnt even let her talk to a cop about it.

And when Will's pictures leaked. 2 of the girls who got it told their parents about it and they came to pick up their phones but didn't contact my sister or Will or anything. He was pushed over the edge the next day. While the cops had 2 phones and knew about the situation.

NOW they are on the case and trying to find the person. I really but really wish they would have been more proactive about it.

Seriously. I hope they find these people and throw the damn book at them.

You should post a link to the gofundme page for your sister that you referenced in the earlier post.

I hope they throw something heavier than a book and that it’s also on fire. 

It always drives me batsh!t crazy that there are people who insist on using their powers for pure evil.  I really hope this person (or people) are found and receive the absolute full punishment they deserve to have coming.

Exactly. Who tries to extort a 16 year old. Only a gigantic piece of sh!t.

I thought the same last night. The Devils bond us all together, and that’s amazing. I love all of you guys, and I’m here for all of you if you ever need anything.

I appreciate the thought but ts closed now, it was only live for 9-10 days and they reached their goal of 25k. And i believe she's been given direct donations from other sources like Will's workplace and from the hockey association, etc. Which is amazing and she should be fine but it still goes by faster than you think. I just hope that she'll be able to take her time before she starts working again and that it won't be because she "has to", for financial reasons. She's still a single mom of 2 and was always on the road for hockey with the kids, it's not easy.

I'm going back home next week though, i didn't really want to leave after 2 weeks but i had to get back to work at some point and also needed some time for myself too, i took everyone's pain in and ive been running around non-stop but i didn't really take time for myself through all that. But my goddaughter has a hockey tournament next weekend so i'll try to be there for her as much as i can.

 

i went to his school to pick up his bike and went to see the memorial the kids did on his locker.

SD, I am very sorry your family's loss. 

Sometimes evil sh!t happens to good kids and it sucks.

This is the resting place of the person I started this for.
 

6 years to the day, I was able to visit for only the second time since I lived this close. I tell his story each time I teach suicide prevention, and I use him as a reason to not be afraid to speak up, cause we need more people like him in the world: happy and not judgmental.

Its the annual bump of this thread. Unfortunately one of our own suffered a similar loss to bump it earlier.

In the immortal words of Bill & Ted, be excellent to each other everyone.
