WINTER HAVEN, FL (WTSP/CNN) – Two girls in Florida were arrested, accused of bullying a 12-year-old girl that eventually committed suicide.
Rebecca Sedwich killed herself last month after her mother says she was relentlessly tormented.
"At this time, these are the two primary harassers," said Polk County, FL Sheriff Grady Judd.
Over the weekend, Polk County detectives spotted a statement posted on social media by 14-year-old Guadalupe Shaw. The post said, "Yes, I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself, but IDGAF."
"Who's the next person that she verbally and mentally abuses and attacks," asked Sheriff Judd.
Concerned that they couldn't wait any longer, investigators charged Shaw and another one of Rebecca's former schoolmates, 12-year-old Katelyn Roman, with aggravated stalking – a third-degree felony .
Their relentless badgering, a contributing factor in Sedwick's tragic suicide leap at an abandon cement plant, detectives said.
"Bullying in and of itself is not a crime. But bullying makes up the predicate acts for stalking or aggravated stalking," said Judd.
The two girls, with no previous records, were booked and released.
At Shaw's home in Lakeland, FL, the 14-year-old was seen emerging from her home wearing a hoodie, only to be taken away quickly by her parents.
Neighbors say Shaw is often in fights and lacks discipline.
"The kids hang loose," said neighbor Jorge Colom. "They're what you call it - unsupervised all the time."
Sheriff Judd says that's a big part of the problem. Parents are apparently unaware or uncaring about their children's actions.
He questioned why Shaw still had access to social media at all.
"Watch what your children do online. Pay attention. Quit being their best friend and be their best parent," Judd said.
Authorities say the bullying stemmed from a dispute between Sedwich and a former classmate about a boy they had both dated.
The 14-year-old suspect's family claimed her social media had been compromised, but investigators don't believe that is true.
No court date has been set for the girls.
Since both have a clean record, authorities say they will not likely do much, if any, jail time.
