Grace McComas endured torture from a man who had previously drugged and assaulted her. He used social media to make Grace feel isolated, afraid, and worthless. Her parents fought to save her, but there was nothing they could do to force those digital platforms to ban Grace’s tormenter. She ultimately ended her life at 15-years-old.

16-year-old Carson Bride ended his life after receiving hundreds of harassing, threatening and sexually explicit messages from classmates who hid their identities with anonymous apps. Carson asked his tormentors to identify themselves so that they could talk things out in person, but no one ever did. The last search on Carson’s phone was for hacks to find out who was doing this to him.
