Remember me talking about how a heap of teenagers from a school near me have committed suicide this year? See this thread: http://mydeathspace.com/smf/index.php?topic=2650.0
Well, it turns out the suicides have spread to another nearby school and the police have seized three computers in relation to the suicides. On the news last night, MySpace was even mentioned in reference to teens "discussing suicide" and schools in the area have sent their kids to crisis assemblies to talk about suicide, etc - there's been nothing at my school yet, but according to a friend who goes to a different school, MySpace was mentioned a couple of times.
I happen to know at least one of the suicides had a MySpace (Abe Radloff, see MDS article at http://mydeathspace.com/article/2006/10/31/Abe_Jackman_Radloff_aka_April_Requiem_(17)_took_hi s_own_life) and the MySpaces of other students at the school, Norwood Morialta High, mention the others... oooh. I'm loving the drama, in a weird sort of way. O.o
I'm just waiting for a MDS mention in the local media...
