Ottawa, Canada (CNN) -- The family of a teenager who
committed suicide after she was allegedly gang-raped and bullied is
urging Canadian officials to reconsider filing criminal charges.
Authorities confirmed that a photograph allegedly showing Parsons having
sex with one of the boys was circulated to friends' mobile phones and
computers. As a result, her family said she developed suicidal thoughts.
She also struggled emotionally after the police investigation ended
without criminal charges, her mother, Leah Parsons, wrote on her
Facebook tribute page.
