What happens when Cyber Bullying turns deadly?  

It's the summer of 2006.  Lori Drew, the 49 year-old mother of teenager Sarah Drew, reportedly became concerned that their 13 year-old neighbor, Megan Meier, was spreading false statements about her daughter. Lori Drew and her employee, Ashley Grills, created a fake MySpace account for the persona for a 16 year-old boy using the name "Josh Evans." They used the fake profile to befriend and communicate with Meier in a flirtatious manner. In a cyber hoax turned deadly, Lori Drew is indicted on federal charges and lives are changed forever.

Let's go Behind the Crime Scene with former Cyber Section Chief and Assistant United States Attorney Michael Zweiback to find out what happened in this tragic case.
