According to investigators, Drew, 49, created a fake MySpace profile dubbed “Josh Evans”, a profile she used to make a fake friendship with 13 year-old Megan Meier.
Later on, she used the same account to send Megan a series of nasty messages, allegedly culminating with “the world would be a better place without you”. As a result, the teenager hanged herself.
Drew was allowed to be released on bail and will be back on court later this month.
