Amanda Todd’s mother responds to bullied teen’s video as police ramp up probe into her suicide
Police say they have set up an email account to gather tips after Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd who was subjected to relentless bullying apparently took her own life.
An official with the coroner’s office has confirmed preliminary indications suggest 15-year-old Todd committed suicide on Wednesday, just a month after posting a video on YouTube describing cyber and physical bullying. Investigators know how she died, but will not release that information.
The RCMP have confirmed that a full investigation has been launched into the circumstances that led to her death.
The RCMP say serious-crime teams are now working together on the case, conducting interviews and reviewing contributing factors to Todd’s death.
They say anybody with information can email amandaTODDinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.
