Cyberbullying Teen Arrested For Encouraging Girl To Commit Suicide; She Tries

Jason Patrick Thomas accused of cyberbullying in Bossier Parish

Bossier Sheriff Larry Deen says a Bossier City teenager was arrested Thursday for cyberbullying. 

17-year-old Jason Patrick Thomas, of the 1600 block of Quin Street, was taken into custody after he admitted to a Bossier Sheriff’s detective that he sent over 50 test messages to a 15 year old female juvenile, encouraging her to commit suicide. 

The female called a friend to tell him she was going to kill herself and the friend posted her cell phone number on a social network site, asking friends to call her and tell her not to kill herself.

Thomas got the female’s cell phone number off the site and used another site to send her the 50 text messages.  The Bossier Sheriff’s investigator says Thomas did this to coerce, abuse and intimidate the victim.  Texts included, “I won’t miss u,” “Ur not important,” and “Just end it all.”  The female took a number of pills, was transported to the hospital, then treated and released.   

Thomas was taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility and booked.  His bond is pending.
