Growing Up Online and Dying with an Audience

Fla. teen commits suicide with live Web audience

"Biggs announced his plans to kill himself over a website for bodybuilders, authorities said. But some users told investigators they did not take him seriously because he had threatened suicide on the site before."

Questions. Always questions.
