The neighbors of a 13-year old girl who hanged herself last year over a MySpace prank are using age-old tactics to make those whom they deem responsible pay.

The Saint Louis Today reports that neighbors of Lori and Curt Drew have made threatening phone calls, thrown a brick through a window and damaged their lawn, among others things. In the latest incident someone called 911 to report that there was a dead body at the Drews’. As many as 15 deputies showed up, but no body was found.

The spat began when it was made public that Lori Drew posed as a teenage boy in MySpace to find out what her neighbor, Megan Meier, was saying about her daughter. In order to gain her confidence, Lori flirted with Megan and after a month broke off their online relationship. Megan, who had been emotionally unstable, killed herself shortly after.
