L.A. Now Live: Questions swirl around Audrie Pott suicide

April 16, 2013

Audrie Pott’s family said the 15-year-old girl either fell asleep or passed out at a weekend party last fall. And she woke up to something her family's lawyer described as "unimaginable."

"There were some markings on her body, in some sort of permanent marker, indicating that someone had violated her when she was sleeping," attorney Robert Allard said Monday. On Audrie's leg was a message, Allard said, that included a boy's name and the words "was here."

Join us at 9 a.m. as we talk with Times reporter Kate Mather about the latest in Audrie’s case, and the police investigation that has so far led to the arrest of three teen boys.

Audrie Pott’s family acknowledged that there probably was just one photo taken of their daughter from the night she fell asleep or passed out at a party last fall, and that it had not been posted on Facebook or widely distributed.

But as Audrie's stepmother Lisa Pott said during an emotional news conference, flanked by enormous photos of the fresh-faced girl: So what?

"We don't know if they were posted," she said. "We do know that images were taken. … Audrie [likely] saw people huddled around cellphones. … In her opinion, the whole school was talking about it."
