Rebecca, 12, jumped to her death at an abandoned cement factory on Sept. 9. Sheriff Grady Judd said soon after that 15 girls were under investigation.

"Girls can get pretty catty as kids," Judd told reporters on Sept. 12. "The system cannot manage all that cattiness. ... I truly believe the school system tried but we don't live in a perfect world."
