Facebook ‘troll’ jailed for propagating hate against dead teens online

TrollTroll

An internet troll who subjected the friends and relatives of a series of suicide victims to a tirade of hate filled videos and messages has been jailed.

Sean Duffy, 25, penned the abusive messages on Facebook tribute pages to the victims of suicide, taunting relatives with his bitter posts.

In one example Duffy posted a YouTube video of Thomas the Tank Engine with the face of suicide victim Natasha MacBryde (15) superimposed on the front on MacBrydes tribute page – after the teen died after being hit by a passenger train.

Another case saw Duffy create a Facebook page from which to goad friends of 14 year old Lauren Dew, who died after suffering an epileptic fit.

“RIP Lauren Dew” saw Duffy posted a series of disturbing images, including the picture of a coffin captioned “Happy Mothers Day.”

Duffy, who suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome and is said to live a “miserable existence” drinking alcohol alone at home, was sentenced to 18 weeks in jail for each offence.

He has also been barred from accessing websites including facebook, Twitter, YouTube, bebo and MySpace.
