Computer-related charges filed after 11-year-old's suicideMore

MI authorities have confirmed that an unidentified minor has been charged with malicious use of telecommunication services and using a computer to commit a crime after Benz was found unresponsive in mid-March and later passed away once removed from life support.

Told Kohler: 'If criminal charges are going to come out of this, they'll be forwarded to the prosecutor's office for review'.

In a statement posted to a GoFundMe page, Goss wrote that the prank is what ultimately led her son to end his life on March 14. "It's a twisted, sick joke".

Those involved in the prank didn't even tell an adult after Benz responded that he planned to take his own life, Goss said.

Goss said she "100% believed" that the teen was responsible for her son's death.

Goss, who disapproved of Benz's relationship with the older girl, said she repeatedly requested that the girl stop contacting him. She communicated to Tysen she was going to kill herself.

Ms Goss found him on March 14 and he was rushed to hospital but died three weeks later on April 4.

Moreover, Goss claimed she had never personally met the girl, but saw her several times while picking up and dropping off her son at school. "Keep his spirit alive by standing strong & fighting against social media bullying".

A distraught MI mother who recently lost her young son to suicide is using his untimely death to warn other parents about the occasional dangers of social media.

A MI family set up a Go Fund Me page for 11-year-old Tysen Benz who hung himself on March 14, 2017; he died on April 4.

The News was unable to reach the girl's family on Thursday. She's asking everyone to fight against social media bullying.

In 2006, Megan Meier committed suicide after a woman who lived in her familys neighbourhood in St. Charles County, Missouri, encouraged the 13-year-old to kill herself.

So moved were the teacher's students in Colombia that they posted a photo of themselves making "T" for Tysen with their fingers as a photo of the 11-year-old was displayed on a screen above.

"He has now been set free and can rest in peace".

She added: "He was loved by everyone he knew and he will absolutely never be forgotten".

But she says things started to go wrong when he bought a cellphone from a friend behind her back and started "secretly dating" the older girl against her wishes.
