Lori Drew, the mom charged in a MySpace hoax that allegedly led to a 13-year-old girl's suicide, is moving out of her Missouri neighborhood. Drew and her family have decided to leave their Dardenne Prairie, Mo., home and will move within a week."I don't honestly know where we are going," the 49-year-old Drew told the paper. She's still facing charges in connection with the 2006 suicide of her teen neighbor Megan Meier.

Lori Drew is no better than a child molester — she not only ruined that young girl’s life, she ended it, along with any hope for peace or happiness for Megan’s family. I hope she finds it difficult to locate a community where she’ll be accepted. I wouldn’t want someone that cruel and crazy in my neighborhood.

She really should get punished for taunting that poor girl the way she did. She would expect the same if someone else’s parent taunting her own child resulting in suicide!!

I was saddened and appalled when I read this story. I grew up in a small town and was not exactly popular. I remember going home crying in middle school due to the relentless teasing and bullying I endured from school kids. I can’t even imagine a parent getting involved and making the problem worse. Adults are supposed to be the ones to protect children, not encourage the behavior. I hope she gets the stiffest sentence allowed, including a long jail sentence.
