TRISTYN Bailey’s social media accounts appear to have been targeted by trolls after the cheerleader, 13, was allegedly killed by Aiden Fucci, 14.
Trolls took to the slain teen’s Instagram page to comment on what she was wearing, just hours after police announced they found her body on Sunday night.
“Lmfao woman [sic] say they strong but can’t even walk outside by them self,” one of the trolls wrote.
“Rip bozo and don’t wear that outfit no one will attack you.”
“You would still be alive if u didn’t wear that outfit,” another troll wrote. “Ya’ll women gotta dress smarter.”
The cruel comments appeared to have been removed by Instagram as of Monday evening.
Friends of Tristyn came to her defense, slamming the trolls for commenting on the teen’s fashion choices, and sending prayers for her.
Tristyn, of St. Johns, Florida, was reported missing by her family around 10am on Sunday.
Aiden Fucci, 14, was arrested on Sunday evening, and on Monday he was charged with second-degree murder.
Fucci was a fellow student at the school that Tristyn went to, Patriot Oaks Academy.
A photograph that was circulating on social media following Tristyn’s death appeared to show a teenager in the back of a cop car, holding up a peace sign with the caption “hey guys has inybody [sic] seen Tristyn lately.”
During a police press conference on Monday, the sheriff said officials were aware of the photo.
The teen was last seen at roughly 1.15am on Sunday morning near the North Amenity Center, according to reports.
Neighbors helped officials search for the teenager. However, Sheriff Robert Hardwick made an announcement that night explaining that authorities believed Tristyn’s body had been found.
“This was not the outcome the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office wanted, or this community [wanted],” Hardwick said.
“This is a grieving community and we’re going to respect our grieving community.”
