at the time, Garcia had been bullied and teased in school severely before she made the tragic decision, with rumors saying she’d slept with four boys on the school football team.

“[They] abused and made fun of [Miss Garcia]. These kids used poor judgment, and they did something they're going to have to live with for the rest of their lives,” a well-placed source says for the publication.
Investigators are now trying to determine whether the boys on the football team may have also been involved, by bragging about having relations with Felicia.
The entire thing reportedly went down one night earlier this month at a party, and the teen had been threatened that a compromising video of her in the act would be made public.
While the investigation is ongoing, Felicia’s family is preparing for the funeral.
The teen was only 15 years old and her final words (on Twitter, no less) were, “I’m done, I give up.”
