Internet Cruel Intentions: 13 Year Old Megan Meier Commits Suicide After Cruel, Sick MySpace Hoax (Josh Evans)


There are sick acts that occur on the internet and then there are others that go beyond words and logic. We always warn children and teens that there are consequence to their actions. In the case of adults … there is no excuse. The following account is one of the most depressing and heinous acts of cyber-bullying and internet fraud against a teen ever. The tragedy that followed, almost makes the story impossible to read. However, everyone should and most read it and beware of those that would be such cowards on the internet to pretend to be someone they are not and to harass others. In this case the resulting tragedy was suicide.

A 13 year old girl, Megan Meier, committed suicide by hanging herself due to the insensitive and cruel actions of an adult who perpetrated a cruel hoax. 13 year old Megan Meier, who suffered from depression and attention deficit disorder, thought she was talking on MySpace to a boy her own age named Josh Evans.

Josh Evans never existed … he was a hoax!!!

The story that follows becomes one of the most insensitive and vicious hoaxes ever done on the internet. Especially when one considers that adults took part in it against an unsuspecting minor. The result is the death of a 13 year old.

DARDENNE PRAIRIE, Mo. (AP)— Megan Meier thought she had made a new friend in cyberspace when a cute teenage boy named Josh contacted her on MySpace and began exchanging messages with her.

Megan, a 13-year-old who suffered from depression and attention deficit disorder, corresponded with Josh for more than a month before he abruptly ended their friendship, telling her he had heard she was cruel.

The next day Megan committed suicide. Her family learned later that Josh never actually existed; he was created by members of a neighborhood family that included a former friend of Megan’s.

The parents of Megan Meier hope the people who made the fraudulent profile on the social networking Web site, MySpace, will be prosecuted and they are seeking legal changes to safeguard children on the Internet. This was the actions of adults, not children or teenager. Adults! These people should be prosecuted to the full extent of whatever law can be used.

“But when adults are involved and continue to screw with a 13-year-old, with or without mental problems, it is absolutely vile,” she told the Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis, which first reported on the case.

The story gets even worse as the newspaper, St. Charles Journal, who first ran with this story then protected the identities of the adultswho drove a 13 year old over the edge to hang herself. The blogosphere and internet community became incensed and outed those responsible for the death of Megan Meier. KUDOS to those on the internet that outed those responsible. No one, especially an adult should be allowed to hide behind anonymity when there is a death … NO ONE!!!

      Such mean and cruel punishment inflicted by neighbors, who, in my opinion have absolutely no sense, at all. To, delibertely, chose someone to pick on to the point of harrassment and stalking is not only criminal but unethical.

      The internet doesn’t give you the right to disquise yourself, as a means of revenge; especially against a child that was clearly already suffereing from the lonely, hopelessness of depression.

      I think there is more to the story and this was perpetrated againast this child as a means of revenge, something adults have no no business in participating in. I hve always had a problem with adults who take it on themselves to either encourage or make it their own business to avenge something that hapens between children.

      I read something that said that children, when faced with problems, usually, forget about it, and the pain that it caused, very quickly. Very few of them bottle up their anger to lash out at other children, in fact to do so is abnormal and is of itself a sign of some sort of personality disorder. Adults on the other hand, have a harder time burying the hatchet. These adults are a prime example of that; and, in this case, it cost the life of a family member that will not soon be forgotten. The pain inflicted on this family is not funny or a joke and the ones responsible should be prosecuted to the extent of the law.

      Curt and Lori Drew. I heard the names were not published to protect the daughter.

      I don’t care if you’re 13 or 33, depressed or happy as a clam, it cuts deep if someone pretends to be a friend and then turns on you with cruel and hurtful intentions. Finding out that that was the whole purpose of befriending you cuts a little deeper.

      This is inexcusable. I hope there is some way to prosecute these sorry excuses for human beings for something. I read a simple definition of fraud: misrepresentation with the intent to do harm. That may or may not be how our courts define it, but it fits the horrible actions of Curt and Lori Drew of suburban St. Louis, MO.

      For 15 years I worked in the field of substance abuse and mental illness. The unfathomable pain and long-term damage inflicted on many of my clients in chilhood at the hands of family members and “family friends” was something I could never get used to hearing… matter how many times I heard it. I was once again sickend when I heard of this cyber cruelty.
      In rehabilitation, clients learn of “consequential thinking” and taking responsibility for their bahavior. When they break rules, they have priviledges taken away- so that they may experience the consequence of their behavior.
      If the perpetrator of the hoax does not receive any repercussion for her sinister behavior, she is bound to repeat her cruelty…

    4. Miss-Underestimated on November 18th, 2007 10:47 pm

      How sick these people are. Adults, I don’t think so. I think a far reaching question may be are these parents capable of the same thing with their own children. I believe their children should be taken from them. The parents are certainly mentally unstable. Freakin moron sick and rotten to the core.

      Did they release who the parents are, who caused this poor child to commit suicide?

    5. clp on November 19th, 2007 1:57 am

      why the hell would you give up your life over what some jerk on the internet tells you?

    6. IObject on November 19th, 2007 3:33 am

      These creeps, uh- I mean parents are a danger to society…I hope there is a way to put them away, but at the VERY LEAST, get their own child away from them and to a loving relative. They are discipicable and not worthy of being called human, and their daughter shouldn’t be saddled with the burden of living with these monsters.

    7. Scam on November 19th, 2007 9:06 am

      I believe that Megan killed herself because she was already suffering from ADD and depression. This hoax was just a tiny factor in what contributed to her death and so charges against the parents would, perhaps, be a little harsh.

    8. kissyface on November 19th, 2007 3:59 pm

      While we cannot put all of the blame on these “parents”, it sure is sick to pretend to be someone else and harrass a young person. If they had such a need to know what was being said, they had other ways to go around it. By putting up this fake persona, all they have done is teach their own child that it is okay to be deceitful and sneaky. I do not agree with “Scam” on this one. She may have been suffering from depression and ADD but given the commentary on the web, she was pushed over the edge. Yes, she took it upon herself to end her life but who knows what would’ve happened if they hadn’t done this. She may very well have made a full recovery and gone on to lead a very happy and productive life. Any parent that would go to these lengths to intimidate, harrass and hurt a child has some serious mental issues of their own. It’s sickening.

    9. da_wench on November 19th, 2007 5:58 pm

      Unfortunately, because Megan was already suffering from mental health issues, it will be difficult to prove what damages were directly caused by Curt and Lori Drew. They will likely not be punished by the law so let’s hope that a higher power intervenes. I hope all involved in in this sick little game will suffer mental and physical anguish for the rest of their days.

    10. Incredible on November 20th, 2007 3:47 am

      Obviously Megan did not kill herself solely because of this cruel prank. She had medical problems…so many people do not understand that mental illness is a medical issue, not one that is just created in the mind of the sufferer. But there is no doubt in MY mind that this sick “joke” CONTRIBUTED to the eventual death of this thirteen year old.

      I can’t imagine what could possibly justify the tormenting of a child by an adult, no matter what Megan said to the Drew daughter. And when it was obviously known that Megan had a mental disease, that makes it even more inconceivable. Usually, I want to hear both sides of the story before I make any judgment at all. But there’s just no way I can see any rationalization or justification for these actions. I doubt the law will punish the Drews, but I hope that Megan will be on the conscience of whichever individuals are responsible for the torment of Megan. I hope they understand that they did CONTRIBUTE to her death, though we can not say they CAUSED it.

      For those of you who feel powerless against this injustice, please read. You are not powerless.. Public pressure CAN result in the proper handling of this case as it has many times before.


      About a month ago, a child nearly drowned in the family swimming pool. The child was pulled inside the house to try to recessitate the child.

      A cop who showed up after paramedics arrived, ran into the house and slipped on the wet floor. A floor wet, because the child was soaking wet.

      After the cop received full pay for her workman’s comp claim…and after all of the cops medical bills were paid….this cop proceeded to sue the family of the boy who is now a vegitable.

      Public outrage and anger lead to the cop’s suspension from the force…and the cop was finally forced to repeal her case.

      Story Here:

      Had this story been covered up and hidden, this cop would have gone forward and sued this grieving family while their child was still in intensive care.

      See… you do have a voice… public pressure can give a victim a small amount of justice.

      Megan Meier deserves at least a little justice in all this – not just some new law named after her.

      If you feel the adult child predator in this case should bear some kind of responsibility to her part in this, then make sure your voice is heard.

      Ms Drew could set this up on your child next…

      Even if you watch your child like a hawk….remember the following.

      Your child’s friends have computers.

      Your child’s school has computers…

      Libraries have computers…

      If your child desperately desires to get to a computer, they will find one eventually…

      And Ms. Drew, and others like her are waiting.

      Justice deserves to prevail here…and so far it has NOT!

      10. You hit the nail on the head. Since Megan was suffering from a mental health issue. The creepy lying deceiving myspace parents should have realize that and told their daughter that.

      Not all people who have children are adults and those parents yet prove it again.

      Deceit lying , ugh they make me sick.

    13. Miss-Underestimated on November 20th, 2007 3:05 pm

      Thank you Danny Vice.

      So Mrs. Drew had to tell to release responsibility and guilt from herself? What a piece of work. Tell me, do you think Ms. Drew has a mental illness?

    14. Patti on November 21st, 2007 1:29 am

      This is silly…

      To say that a girl who suffers from depression was bound to commit suicide is simply not true. And if she suffered ADD as well, then these nice neighbors were truly acting like bullies making fun at someone else’s expense.

      To say that the jokesters are not accountable for a crime is like telling our kids that it’s okay to act like that. Adults are ALWAYS supposed to set the example, so let it be.

      AND… then to bring the FOOSBALL game over to be stored is typical for someone without a conscience and without sense. How do we know they don’t suffer from depression and have ADD, themselves. They simply make no sense….

      Would it have been different if they called on the phone and led her to believe that someone loved and cared about her, in order to, p0urposely, break her heart? It shouldn’t. These parents with MALICE and INTENT TO CAUSE HARM hurt this poor little girl, knowing that she had mental and emotional problems. Make an example of them and stop the hate no matter where it is.

    15. Danny Vice on November 21st, 2007 4:17 pm

      As details about Lori Drew’s 6 week cyber-voyeur techniques emerged, the more I am convinced that outing this kind of behavior is not only right, but essential. Essential? Why?

      It is becoming clearer and clearer that Lori Drew employed many of the same grooming techniques that child predators utilize to charm their way into gaining a child’s trust. Even Lori herself reported to police that she created the MySpace account in order to find out what Megan was saying.

      The most significant key here is that Lori Drew spent approximately 6 full weeks baiting Megan into this trust by posing as a “cute” boy that Megan would be attracted to. Right there, Drew utilizes the sexual stimulation that exists in male/female pair bonding in order to manipulate the 13 year old girl.

      Lori Drew groomed her victim like many child predators do, enticing her with flirtation, mild sexual conversation and playing on Megan’s weakness. Lori knew that Megan had a low self esteem and was treated for depression.

      Outing Child Predators has been public policy in most states and is usually upheld under the premise that the public has a right to reasonably protect itself from criminal behavior where it exists. Families with children have a right to know when those who might prey upon their child, live nearby. Public policy dictates that if a child is exposed to potential harm from predatory activity, then parents should at least have the opportunity to be aware such harm may exist.

      It is the predatory nature of this case that bears striking resemblance to the public policy. The only difference in this case is that the alleged perpetrator of this heinous act has not been charged or convicted.

      Thus far, details in the case have been heavily supported by Lori Drew’s own admissions, police records and interviews. The amount of speculation in this case has been minimal, and the majority of public outrage has largely focused on the facts presented.

      The Missouri Public Records Act of 1961 were devised partially to inform the public of persons, events, proceedings and reports that may effect the public directly. These records (such as the charges Lori Drew filed against the Meier family), were the principal documents used to tie Lori Drew to her abhorrent acts. By filing this police report, Lori in effect put herself into the spot light. The Blogging community simply connected the dots and reported the results.

      The Vice enjoys the sharp irony that Lori Drew’s own actions, activities and zeal to hurt eventually lead to her own uncovering. As I see it, public policy laws and Lori Drew’s own manipulations of those laws worked to her undoing. The Vice is appreciative for Lori Drew’s assistance in these efforts.

      This is such a terrible incident. My heart goes out to the family. As I read the article about this young child, tears came to my eyes. Why are people so mean? It is appalling to know that an adult would act in such a manner. The parents of Megan should be able to have some type of criminal charges against the other family. I cannot believe the other girls mother does not feel she is responsible for Megan committing suicide.

    17. Danny Vice on November 23rd, 2007 9:57 pm

      On Wednesday, October 21st, city officials enacted an ordinance designed to address the public outcry for justice in the Megan Meier tragedy. The six member Board of Aldermen made Internet harassment a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a $500 fine and 90 days in jail.

      Does this new law provide any justice for Megan? Does this law provide equitable relief for a future victim or actually weaken the current law?

      I reject the premise of this new law and believes it completely misses the mark. The reasoning behind this opinion is that city officials have consistently treated this case as an Internet harassment case instead of a child welfare/exploitation case.

      Classifying this case a harassment issue completely fails to address the most serious aspects of the methods Lori Drew employed to lead this youth to her demise. The Vice disagrees that harassment was even a factor in this case until just a couple of days before Megan’s death.

      Considering this case a harassment issue is incorrect because during the 5 weeks Lori Drew baited and groomed her victim, the attention was NOT unwanted attention. It was not harassment at all. It was invited attention. Megan participated in the conversations willingly because she was lured, manipulated and exploited without her knowledge.

      This law willfully sets a precedent that future child exploiters and predators can use to reclassify their cases to harassment issues. In effect, the law enacted to give Megan justice, may make her even more vulnerable. So long as the child victim doesn’t tell the predator to stop, even a harassment charge may not stick with the right circumstances and a good defender.

      Every aspect of this case follows the same procedural requirement used to convict a Child Predator. A child was manipulated by an adult. A child was engaged in sexually explicit conversation (as acknowledged by Lori Drew herself). An adult imposed her will on a child by misleading her, using a profile designed to sexually or intimately attract the 13 year old Megan.

      Lori then utilized the power she had gained over this child to cause significant distress and endangerment to that child. She even stipulated to many of these activities in the police report she filed shortly after Megan’s death.

      We can go on and on here, but the parallels between this case and many other child predator cases that are successfully prosecuted bear striking similarities.

      Child Predator laws do not require much more than simply proving that an adult has engaged a minor in sexually explicit conversation. Lori Drew has already stipulated that her conversations with Megan were sometimes sexual for a child Megan’s age.

      City officials who continue to ignore this viable, documented admission and continue to address this issue as harassment are intentionally burying their heads in the sand, when the solution is staring them right in the face. Why?

      On June 5th, 2006, Governor Matt Blunt signed into law stiff penalties for convicted sex offenders. The Vice believes that officials continually reject a child predator classification of this case in order to keep the penalty of this offense out of this harsher realm.

      Opponents of this law are active in defeating this law not by changing it, but by disqualifying cases like Megan’s from ever being heard.

      There are several other child exploitation laws on the books. To date, none of them have even been considered by City, State and Federal officials in this case. I’m outraged that a motion was never even filed, so that the case could at least be argued before a judge or jury.

      Those satisfied with this response out of Missouri officials need to think through the effect this law will truly have. It quite honestly has the potential to directly undermine Jessica’s law. It quiet easily gives prosecutors a way out of prosecuting child endangerment and child predator cases in the future.

      Beware the wolf in sheep’s clothing here.

      It is important to remember that there are two sides to every story, and this is no different. Megan’s mother would do well to let it go, already.

      Lori Drew is a psychopath. That part is clear.

      But more disturbing than that are the actions of authorities: If it had been an adult MALE that “carried on” in a sexually explicit way with a 13 year old girl, even if it WERE for the purposes of revenge for his teen daughter, he’d be locked up as a pedophile.

      Second, there are al-READY laws on the books that cover this type of harassment. For chrissake: just implement them!

      What is particularly chilling to me, is that Lori Drew knew that the victim was known to be suicidal in the past. That means that her statement to her that the “world would be better off without you” or whatever it was… is even MORE chilling: it means she was TRYING to steer this girl to suicide. It means she had a desire to push it in that direction, and did so.

      Reminds me of Charles Manson. He never “technically” put his own hands upon his victims either, but he “made it happen” by manipulating people, I mean that’s the premise upon which he was convicted: that he had INCITED it.

      Same thing here. Lori Drew incited this suicide and should be just as responsible as Manson was when he incited those murders—and she should also be treated just like any other adult who engages in online relationships of a sexual nature with under-aged children.

      If a person starts a fight not meaning to kill someone, but the person has a bad heart and dies, the person is charged with killing the person.

      If personA has bad back from playing football but is able to get around, and personB is drunk and smashes into A’s car and the back gets worse so he needs an operation, personB is responsible for the fix. He doesn’t say, Oh he had a bad back before.

      It seems to me that this sort of messing with people’s heads has been going on for a long time. I remember a Scout leader did something that made me a social outcast. It may have been related to me doing something rather minor to his son, who I guess he expected to never be picked on because he was the scout leader. And girls are masters at this stuff for they don’t physically fight as much like guys. But in this case, the oppression was very twisted. It reminds me of the movie, Amadeus and how Solari messed with Mozart’s head to write the Requiem.

      This thing is so sad.

Not even parents can see what is happening so there is no way they saw it coming.This family has the right to be in sorrow but for the Drew family to be unpunsihed is even crueler.

      Words uttered , spoke to torment little megans mind
      a vengeful families plotting s where they had no right
      venomous words of hate streamed across Megans screen
      all the friends she added were no where to be seen

      what a cruel and ugly thing for anyone to say and do
      “the world would be a better place Megan without you”
      She chose the only way she thought would erase the words of the crowd
      But in the silence of her space she’s screaming out soo loud

      The poison raced all through her mind, a storm of hatred raged
      untrue words and badgering left her being wracked with pain
      They preyed upon her problem they all knew she was ill
      Adults faked a friend to spy on her, then tore her up to get some thrills

      what a cruel and ugly thing for anyone to say and do
      “the world would be a better place “Megan” without you”
      She chose the only way she thought could erase the words of the angry crowd
      But in her absence on her space she’s screaming out soo loud

      We have a county prosecutor and a defense attorney who have gone on the record with statements that flat out rewrite history and previous statements.

      If we were to believe that the statements Lori Drew is now making are truthful, and the police report she filed in Nov. 2006, was incorrect, then Lori Drew should be prosecuted for filing a false police, making a false statement or obstruction of justice.

      Lori Drew, through her attorney Jim Briscoe has made the following statement:

      “Everything, as far as Mrs. Drew knew, was that all the communication was nice and polite and there was no harassing going on. She did not create the MySpace account. She did not instruct anybody to create the MySpace account. She never made any communications through the MySpace account.”

      Well alright Lori, now that you’ve completely absolved yourself from the case in any way, shape or form, please explain how this squares with your previous statements.

      When it all comes down to it, we simply don’t believe you. We’ll take the officer’s account of what you said above what your attorney says. He was not being paid to defend you.

      Jack Banas, we are calling for charges in this case one way or another.

      Either the woman did stalk this child, or she made knowingly false statements to the police prior to the surfacing of this report.

      You cannot absolve this woman of complete wrong doing on both sides of the fence. Pick a side or step down and let someone take over who can. Too many admissions have been publicly made for you to continue to hide under your desk.

      Ah you idiots. You’re all letting the media control your minds. What kind of stupid parents let their 13 year old daughter use the internet for dating? 13 year olds aren’t even supposed to be on Myspace! Morals aside, if you make “cyber bullying” illegal…what are you going to take away next? Why isn’t face to face bullying illegal for that matter? The parents of this girl obviously allowed her to get to the state where she became suicidal. Crazy or not, this girl didn’t kill herself over a boy. She killed herself over the void that the “boy” showed her was there. Had this Myspace hoax not done it, something else would have.

    31. derryk on May 15th, 2008 11:46 pm

      Has anyone noticed the words “fraud” and “fraudulence” in regard to the unfortunate actions of Lori Drew? These terms seem to have a tinge of legalese, treating the matter as if there was some sort of contractual arrangement between those involved that had some how been violated and perhaps prosecution is now in order. Does anyone truly believe that this woman’s actions were calculated to cause this poor girl to commit suicide? it was perhaps a mean-spirited prank yes– but to go so far as to say more legislation should be passed or that tighter controls ought to be put in place on the net to prevent this sort of thing from happening again, is once again playing into the hands of those whose benefit it would be to keep tabs on us all.

I want this precedent set in motion so families can legally charge the group known as “perverted justice” with whatever they decide to charge this woman with. Perverted justice has lied and deceived citizens on the internet and has caused quite a few suicides. So maybe there will be help for these families, as well!

      I was bullied on the job when I was 19 and right out of high school. I had a nervous breakdown and anorexia. Bullying in any form or fashion is NOT to be tolerated! Especially by adults who prey on innocent children!

      I can’t believe people are actually siding with this woman and don’t think she is wrong. She should go to prison for what she did. It was a very cruel and heartless thing to do. And it doesn’t matter if she didn’t directly kill her or tell her to kill herself. If the woman hadn’t been so mean to her, then she never would have committed suicide. This girl was already suffering from depression and having emotional problems, and she didn’t need some insensitive bitch to be so cruel to her. My heart goes out to the girl’s friends and family.

      go figure

      all you suburbanites need a life

      bla bla bla whether one exists he/she should never be prosecuted,those who commit suicide is not only forbidden by natural laws but their problem’s in any case involving the biggest American losers ( you! )
      should reconsider that in any world online/offline is reserved to have anonymity . as i waste time conceiving,or am I speaking too much for you to understand in a qualified notion?????.
      The only issue at hand is your own problems and arrogance..thus for all the military then shall be prosecuted as for no difference than what they do in around the world but then again,you the amerika believes all the media. I’d say get a life and see the world you are in fact the last to be aware of any such truth for the purpose of protecting your own stupidity
