A federal grand jury has begun issuing subpoenas in the Megan Meier MySpace suicide case. Prosecutors in the U.S. attorney's office in Los Angeles are exploring the possibility of charging Lori Drew with defrauding the MySpace social networking website by allegedly creating the false account. Prosecutors are looking at federal wire fraud and cyber fraud statutes as they consider the case. Prosecutors believe they have jurisdiction because MySpace is headquartered in Beverly Hills.
"If MySpace is considered the victim, fine. I don't care at this point," said Tina Meier, Megan's mother. "We've been begging for someone, anyone, to pick up this case. If the Drews can be charged, and even get the chance to be convicted, it would be a day I could be happy with."
