Teen suicide triggers hail of Twitter condemnations


Novara, January 7 - Negative gossip may have pushed
a 14-year-old to jump out of a window to her death in the
northern Italian city of Novara over the weekend, according to a
preliminary reconstruction of events Sunday.
News of her suicide, which took place between Friday and
Saturday night,triggered a torrent of hundreds of Twitter
messages from friends and relatives fingering gossip-mongering
bullies, investigators found.
"What a horrible act you had to do because of bad people,"
said one Twitter comment.
"You shouldn't have given a damn. (You should have) thought
of yourself and not what others say," said another.
"Tomorrow I have to go back to school…and see those
idiots…I can't do it," read yet another.
The teenager went to a party with friends the same night
she leaped from her parents' window, and was not known to have
particular problems or psychological issues.
The Carabinieri police and Novara prosecutor's office are
conducting a probe, but investigators have neither identified
suspects nor formulated a crime.
Novara's chief prosecutor, Francesco Saluzzo, called for
calm, saying, "Be careful not to launch a witch hunt".
