Patti's comment:This is so very heartbreaking. Girls be careful out there!
A few days after Audrie Pott killed herself, while her baffled parents
were grieving and students across the Saratoga High School campus wore
her favorite color, teal, in her memory, a couple of the 15-year-old
girl's closest friends came to Audrie's mother and delivered a shocking
message: "There is more to this than you know."
Sheila Pott rushed to check her daughter's cellphone, emails, texts and Facebook page. And then she found the haunting words of her beautiful, once-bubbly daughter: "These guys did (expletive) to me while I was sleeping," read one message. "This is the worst day of my life," read another.
Not only had she been sexually assaulted after drinking too much at a house party, her family's lawyers say, but pictures of her naked during the attack were being shared online.
