The Megan Meier MySpace Suicide Story is Back in the News

An LA Federal Grand Jury Has Handed Down Subpoenas

Reaction, as Expected, Is Quickly Heating Up in the Media and Internet 

Does Lori Drew’s Attorney, Jim Briscoe, Have any Reaction to the Latest Development?

The Megan Meier MySpace Suicide story is heating back up again.

This time, it’s fueled by subpoenas issued by a Los Angeles grand jury in the case and an appearance on Dr. Phil by Tina Meier and others.

The Megan Meier story, as anyone who’s covered it knows, has had more twists and turns than a TV movie.

For a list of over 40 stories and videos by DBKP on the story since it broke on the Internet, see the Megan Meier MySpace Suicide Library. It begins with the first retelling of the original story by Steve Pokin, of the Suburban Journals until present day.

It follows the story of Megan Meier, her parents, Ron and Tina Meier, their neighbor, Lori Drew, the statements by Drew and her attorney, Jim Briscoe and others.

It also details the creation of the “Megan Had it Coming” blog, supposedly a creation of Drew, but in reality, the clever device of an Internet “troll”.

It’s last story was one chronicling the ‘Increasing Victimization of Lori Drew’ in the Mainstream Media.

NOT included is DBKP’s last conversation with Drew’s attorney, Jim Briscoe. That story was slated to go out with some other updates later this week.

Current events have caught up with us, however. That article will be coming out later today now.

Back to the subpoenas. From the LA Times:
In a novel approach, prosecutors are looking at charging a woman who posed as a boy and sent cruel messages to teen with defrauding MySpace.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles has begun issuing subpoenas in the case of a Missouri teenager who hanged herself after being rejected by the person she thought was a 16-year-old boy she met on MySpace, sources told The Times.

What are some of the latest reactions?
