Ryan was constantly teased at school because he was developmentally slow.
In 7th grade there was a bully that pretended to be Ryans friend.
hey everyone ryans a mentally unstable retard
When Ryan thought they were friends the bully spreaded rumors and personal information about Ryan online.
hahahaha ur a freak no one likes u ur stupid go die u wont be missed
Ryan later received frequent e-mails and IMs from classmates making fun of him.
Ryan had a crush on one girl who pretended to like him; then she sent his personal e-mails to her friends so they could laugh at him.
While his parents did know about the bullying at school, Ryan never told them about the cyberbullying. He kept to himself and went into deep depression. Just after he started 8th grade, Ryan committed suicide.
