New Twist In Rehtaeh's Online Bullying Case

There's another disturbing development in the online bullying case connected to Rehtaeh Parsons. A teenager in Eastern Passage has been charged with making death threats against the young girls father. Police wouldn't not confirm the relationship between the accused and the victim, but a source told our newsroom the threats were made online against Glen Canning last year. The 19 year-old was arrested Thursday. His name has not been released. Multiple media reports suggest the teenager is also connected to the child porn charges laid following Rehtaeh's death. A court date has been set for May 20 to deal with the charges. Parsons attempted suicide last year because of intense cyberbullying after lewd photos of the young girl went around the Internet . She was taken off life support a few days later.
