Two Children have been charged with Cyberstalking following the death of Surfside middle schooler, Gabriella Green. 

On January 10th, PCPD responded to a call referencing 12 year-old Gabriella or “Gabbie” Green as unresponsive. She was transported to the hospital and pronounced dead. 

Following her death, Beach Police began an investigation into the cause. During the investigation, Police became aware of Cyberbullying that may have attributed to Green’s death. 

Friends, acquaintances and family members of Green were interviewed regarding the incident. After numerous interviews and reviewing various social media accounts– along with information found on cellphones, police say they have identified two 12 year-old children that were allegedly Cyberbullying Green. 

The names of the children have not been released, but authorities say both children confessed to engaging in behavior that they knew would cause Green emotional distress. 

Although, the children are being charged in relation to Green’s death, authorities say that during their investigation they did not determine Cyberbullying as the sole cause of death; only confirmed that she was being Cyberbullied at the time of her passing. The official cause of death has not been released. 

Beach Police say Cyberbullying is a huge issue and they plan to combat the problem by hosting a training session pertaining to this topic in the weeks to come.
