prineJuly 23, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The family of the Massachusetts teenager who hanged herself in the month of January have expressed their displeasure over an online magazine article which claimed that the teen already had a troubled past. Phoebe Prince killed herself after she was allegedly bullied at her school after she immigrated with her family to United States from Ireland. Six of her school mates including the 15-year-old’s former boyfriend were charged in the case later in the month of March.

However, the new research into the case by an online magazine portrays a completely different picture of Phoebe Prince claiming that the teen was troubled much before she had even met the six teenagers accused of driving her to suicide. The article who has been written by Emily Bazelon, who has been studying the case since February, states that the 15-year-old had a disturbed past and had been confronting psychological issues which included a previous suicide attempt. The details which have been furnished by the online magazine raises serious doubts about whether the six students of Phoebe Prince’s high school in Northampton, Massachusetts actually deserve to be prosecuted in the first place.

However, the family members of the deceased teen have slammed the magazine for portraying a completely different image of Phoebe Prince in front of the public. Her aunt, Eileen Moore has revealed to the media that the malicious contents of the report have re-opened the wounds since the unfortunate demise of the teen on January 14. Her family and friends have termed the report as a hatchet job, the main aim of which is to take away the blame from the six accused teenagers.
