CHARLOTTE, N.C.–The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is investigating a case of cyberbullying that involves a 14-year-old student pictured on what’s called a “burn page.”
Those burn pages have popped up all over Facebook and are often associated with schools.
Students use them to slam other students, posting gossip and sometimes vicious opinions.
The case reported to CMPD involves the “Ranson Burn Page” associated with Ranson Middle School off Statesville Road.
The victim’s mother, Amber Lee, says she got a phone call from her 14-year-old daughter after some students made reference to a picture and sexually explicit comment posted on the page.
“Right there, on the front page was a picture of my daughter,” she says.
The “Ranson Burn Page” is now private, but as of Friday afternoon, was still on Facebook.
It has been reported, and it is not clear why it hasn’t been removed.
