Cassidy’s rape had been reported to the police but the teenager was too scared to put across a formal statement since she feared a lot more retaliation from the bullies. She had to repeatedly change schools but the two other girls bullying her just would not give up and often slapped her while at school. Linda said she had to eventually get an intervention order on one of the bullies when she assaulted Cassidy at a cafe and later called demanding to talk to her. Linda found an unfinished suicide note on Cassidy’s computer which broke the mother even further. Cassidy’s mother and boyfriend tried for a very very long time to pull her out of the depression she had sunk into but eventually failed. It’s impossible for any of us to understand what Cassidy and her loved ones went through all thanks to some bullies who thought it was alright to take away from her whatever she had in soul and spirit. Linda Trevan, Cassidy’s mother hopes this will raise awareness and give other victims the courage they need to come out and report such crimes. We hope this move by Cassidy’s mother tells victims of rape and bullying that they have the support of people and shall not think twice before reporting such bullies and taking them to task.
