A teenage girl's profiles on social networking sites reveal the vile messages from internet trolls that friends say pushed her to kill herself.
Jessica Laney, 16, was found dead at her home in Hudson, Florida, on Sunday night after users on social networking sites branded her 'fat', a 'slut' and tormented her over her looks and love life.
Messages on the teen's profile on Ask.fm - where people can post questions anonymously on a user's page - show the constant abuse that friends claim pushed Jessica over the edge.
One user asks Jessica, 'Can you kill yourself already?' while another comments: 'Nobody even cares about you.'
Jessica, who was a keen soccer player, also takes to the page to reveal her own turmoil, sharing her heartbreak at her troubled family life, school spats and concerns over her body.
'My brother and I don't talk anymore,' she wrote earlier this month. 'My dad, yeah he ignores me like I don't even f***ing exist. I have almost no friends I actually trust. My mom bitches at me for the littlest things. I am basically all alone.'
