It has been revealed that a 15-year-old Leitrim girl may have tragically took her life because of online bullying.
Gardaí had already launched an investigation following the discovery of her body in a wooded area near her home.
Ciara Pugsley (15) was found on Wednesday night at Killargue, near Dromahair, on the Sligo/Leitrim border, after a small search party was organised by neighbours.
