SAN FRANCISCO — A new classmate has been implicated in the death of a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide after saying three boys sexually assaulted her and circulated photos of the abuse online.
Audrie Pott hanged herself in September, about a week after passing out drunk at a party at a friend's house in Northern California.
The 15-year-old said boys she had known for years took off her clothes and sexually assaulted her, including writing and drawing on intimate parts of her body and taking cellphone photos of their actions, according to authorities.
She tried to confront the boys accused of attacking her online, and posted her feelings about it on social media.
"I have a reputation for a night I don't even remember and the whole school knows," she wrote in one Facebook message to a friend.
