Mom Promises to Sue over Child's Suicide Connected to Online Bullying

Though she doesn't identify who those people might be

The mother of 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick who committed suicide after persistent online bullying by classmates said today she intends to sue those responsible for her death.

The girl's mother, Tricia Norman, did not identify who she would sue, but two girls, ages 12 and 14,were originally arrested and charged with cyberstalking in Sedwick's death.

Those charges were dropped last week.

"People keep asking me, 'How do you feel?' I don't really know how to answer that question," Norman said today. "I feel like I'm living a nightmare and I can't wake up."

"My heart aches constantly," she said. "My body is numb. I can't sleep. My happiness no longer exists. My baby is gone."
