(The Weekly Vice) - A little over a year ago, a 13 year old girl named Megan met a boy named Josh Evens through her MySpace page. Megan was was on overweight teen who struggled with her self esteem. So much so that she was depressed and was prescribed medication. But that seemed to subside more and more since Megan met Josh. She was happy to have finally met a hot boy who took considerable interest in her.
Josh spent 6 weeks talking to Megan. He was verbally affectionate with her and made her feel special. He worked hard to gain her confidence through one conversation after another. He considered Megan his girlfriend. With this new found bond, he got Megan talking, sharing her most intimate feelings and thoughts. "She was the happiest she had ever been in her life" according to her father, Ron Meier.
On October 15th, 2006 Josh's story took an abrupt turn for the worst. Suddenly his warm, caring disposition turned cold. "I don't know if I want to be friends with you anymore because I've heard that you are not very nice to your friends."
Puzzled and confused, Megan emailed back, desperately trying to find out what her sweet Josh was talking about.
On October 16th, 2006, Josh dropped the hammer that crushed the 13 year old Megan. He told her that "Everybody in O'Fallon knows how you are. You are a bad person and everybody hates you. Have a shitty rest of your life. The world would be a better place without you!"
Megan then began to see messages from other individuals, people she didn't even know, firing insults at her and to others about her. She frantically tried to find a reason behind them, but none was forthcoming. "Megan Meir is a slut. Megan Meier is FAT!" filled the bulletins Josh knew Megan frequented.
The overload proved to be too much. Megan's whole world was crashing down around her including a life she had spend months and months building. Everything good that was happening to Megan suddenly turned sharply against her.
Megan heeded the last advice she received from Josh. While her mother prepared dinner downstairs, Megan hung herself with a belt in her bedroom closet. Although a neighborhood boy next door was summoned to help revive her, Megan died in her parents arms the next day.
THE WORST WAS YET TO COME
Megan's parents, Tina and Ron Meier were devastated by the loss of their daughter Megan. However the grief was magnified when they learned that Josh never even existed. The boy who spend weeks and weeks luring their daughter to her death never existed. The entire set up was constructed by someone far more familiar.
It wasn't a just a school kid prank. It wasn't just a case of teen angst.
It was a trusted adult who played this cruel hoax. An adult the family knew well.
Megan had formed an on again/off again relationship with a neighborhood girl. When Megan decided to cool the friendship for awhile, that is when the friend's Mother, Lori Drew took matters into her own hands.
Ms. Drew fabricated the profile of the boy who would later befriend Megan, lure her in, entice her, groom her for a relationship and then deliver the crushing blow.
Ms. Drew was the architect that stalked, baited and then hooked Megan into a full blown relationship.
It was Ms. Drew who employed the help of others to join in the scheme. She even convinced an employee of her business to assist in the facade in order to keep the pressure on.
When the Meier family learned of the identify of their daughter's stalker, they destroyed a foosball table they had been storing for the Drews.
Instead of compassion, remorse or shame, Ms. Drew filed charges against the grieving Meier family for breaking the table.
A year has passed and this story is just coming to light. Major news outlets have just recently picked up on this story. Although the story was initially reported by Steve Pokin of the St. Charles Journal , the story has largely been suppressed by the authorities and attorneys in the case. Only recently have the perpetrators of this heinous act been outed. Not by news outlets, but by bloggers across the world who tracked down the name, address and finally the police report of the adult that masterminded the entire scheme.
Major news outlets have still been slow to "name names" in this case in consideration of Ms. Drew's daughter, however the news has already hit the proverbial fan. The neighborhood knows. The world now knows.
Danny ViceGrip has a belief that no adult who seduces a child to her death through sexual and intimate manipulation is due anonymity. While we are slow to get into more specifics of the Drew's location, we will not prohibit others from discussing the information because it is part of the public record. That anonymity is gone anyway - and it's best to assure that the focus remains on Ms. Drew herself.
There is no factual reporting or information I have found that directly ties the husband or the Drew's child(ren) to this act of horrific revenge on the 13 year old victim, Megan.
Well okay. Time to call it as I see it.
I'm pissed, and for good reason. An adult child predator named Ms. Drew has gotten away with the perfect crime in my opinion.
Ms. Drew utilized the same MOA used by many Child Predators to seduce a 13 year old child to her doom.
Ms. Drew stalked, enticed, manipulated and lured her victim Megan into intimately male/female conversations. She went on to form a heated relationship with this child, posing as another child. She groomed the 13 year old victim for weeks and weeks as most any other online predator does.
Ms. Drew then diverted her child predator tactics in a dangerous direction. Drew was fully aware of Megan's bout with depression. Ms. Drew knew Megan was on medication and suffered from depression. Ms. Drew used the weaknesses of this child against her, knowing full well the full force that would be brought to bear on the child.
Ms. Drew played directly on the sensitivities she knew would cause maximum damage to the child. Ms. Drew lured the child in a way she knew would be most devastating to the child.
When Ms. Drew saw her bullets were hitting it's mark, she turned up the heat. She invited others to partake in the sick, twisted mental assault on this child, keeping the pressure up for weeks and weeks.
Ms. Drew then delivered the final blow that any depressed girl would crumble under.
She mentally raped the child and left her for dead.
Ms. Drew remains smug and defiant about her actions - even seeks to attack this grieving family while their beloved daughter's memory is fresh in their mind.
Ms. Drew has committed the unthinkable.... and doesn't even acknowledge she abused this child.
Child Predators go to jail for their actions. Physical contact is not required for a conviction. Evidence of any kind of sexually charged grooming of a child by an adult is worthy of a charge of indecent liberties with a child.... or at the very least harassment.
IT'S YOUR TURN
It's now your turn to turn the ViceGrip a notch. What do you think is just here?
