The family of a local teen who committed suicide because of bullying is facing more problems.
Williamsville, N.Y. - (WKBW) - Amherst Police have been investigating the suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer for more than a week. They've talked to Williamsville North High School students and friends of the teen. Now, things have gotten worse as Jamey's sister was bulled at school a few days ago.
Police were called to the high school last week, when Jamey's sister began to get harassed at a homecoming event on the night of her brother's wake. One of Jamey's favorite songs by singer Lady Gaga came on. Jamey's sister and friends began chanting his name in honor of the teen. Then, the family said the same people who targeted Jamey allegedly began screaming.
"You're better off dead. We're glad you're dead," bullies allegedly said.
Both Jamey's sister and her parents took his anti-bullying message to the networks. His parents said even thought he worst is over for their son, they worry about others facing harassment and torment.
Police said they would continue the investigation the case. They may even make an arrest, if necessary. This all happens as lawmakers fight to make stricter laws against bullying as a result of this tragic death.
