ESTERO Fla. (NBC) -- Deputies say two Estero High School students created a fake Facebook account for
a real person. They're accused of posing as their classmate, and posting
pictures and comments so offensive, we can't repeat them here.
Deputies say these are real life mean-girls. The two teens are big
trouble, busted by the FBI and Lee County Sheriff's Office for cyberbullying
through the popular social networking site Facebook.
"The sole purpose of this page was to
terrorize and embarrass a victim," Lt. Ryan Bell of
the Lee County Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies say the 16-year-old victim
had no idea. They tell us it started as a rift between the one-time friends. Sixteen-year-old Taylor Wynn and 15-year-old McKenzie Barker and the victim all went
to Estero High School.
A student we spoke with says Taylor has since
transferred. The student says Taylor is a nice girl and that her actions are surprising.
Deputies say the girls created the Facebook page
last April to bully their classmate in a viscous way.
We can't repeat
what the postings said, but the graphic statements suggested the girl was
willing to perform various sex acts with men in the 239 area code.
According to reports, it was another Estero High School student who told
authorities about the inappropriate page. It was shut down within a week.
Detectives say they then created a second fake page attacking the girl yet
again. It too was shut down.
As the for the reason, The arrest report
states that Taylor Wynn told deputies she made the fake pages as a joke, because
"nobody liked her."
But it's a crime, Bell said. "This isn't just
kids making fun of each other, poking fun at each other."
There was no answer at
Taylor's home when we went to ask about the felony charges. Deputies say
the victim found out about the online attack from other students. The page had more 150 friends.
