His name was Josh Evans. He was 16 years old. And he was hot.
"Mom! Mom! Mom! Look at him!" Tina Meier recalls her daughter saying.
Josh had contacted Megan Meier through her MySpace page and wanted to be added as a friend.Yes, he's cute, Tina Meier told her daughter. "Do you know who he is?"

The family (particularly the mother) down the street who perpetrated this fraud are obviously very sick sociopaths.
The FBI needs to charge them with something - this “family”, in effect, murdered Megan. The victim’s family also MUST file a civil suit against the “family down the street”. Hopefully the victim’s mother will grow a spine.
I haven’t read all the posts, has anyone come up with their name yet?
Its bad enough how cruel children and young adults can be to one another. Adults getting in on the action is totally unacceptable. Many parents really need to focus less on being friends with their children and put more effort into proper guidance.
Just because there is not a law on point to punish the adults who committed these despicable acts does not mean you shrug your shoulders and go about your business. First you let the system work, then, if it fails...well, let’s just say you want me on your jury. Do not rely on the government to take care of you and your family under any circumstances.
The only reason not to act would be if you have other children to raise, but I did not see mention of them. But, I can certainly hold a grudge until they are on their own. Meanwhile, I’d use those years to legally transfer assets out of my name so that I’d be judgment proof. I’m patient and some crimes have no statute of limitations.
Alternatively, the article mentioned some “helpful” friends and family members. Perhaps the parents get an anonymous letter in the mail to go to the police station at a certain time...and so they do. Who knows what might happen while the parents are innocently at the station turning over the letter to detectives...establishing their alibi.
And, I won’t argue with anyone who says my comments are wrong, immoral, un-Christian, anything you want to call me, I’ll agree. My only response...don’t mess with my children.
.....For any adult to do this to any child is just plain wrong....
My take is they are covering for their daughter.
I am going to have my 15-year old son read this article this evening.
I have both Myspace and a Facebook pages. They are very handy for checking up on my twenty-something kids, as well as my 16 year old niece and other teens in the community I’m concerned about. But these all must be pretty good kids because I haven’t witnessed any of this kind of drama.
Of course I have to maintain a low profile to maintain my cover.
There’s an awful lot of smutty garbage on MySpace that they don’t seem willing to want to control.
PLATO? Hey I typed my French homework on PLATO in the Foreign Language building (right near those really stinky ginko trees).
What was this mother thinking allowing her 13-year-old daughter to “add” a hot!16-year-old guy that she didn’t know to her account?
Hmm, are these the evil neighbors?
Curt and Lori Drew of O’Fallon, MO?
God bless that poor child.
Anyone want to bet on how long it will take for this to show up on an episode of Law and Order?
>> I havent read all the posts, has anyone come up with their name yet? <<
That was a disgusting thing to do to somebody. Makes me sick to my stomach. Poor Megan.
“It’s hard to believe someone isn’t legally responsible for what happened to this girl.”
Do you mean someone other than the parents?
Thanks, but I beat you to it by a nonosecond. LOL.
It never ceases to amaze me what scum walks the earth.
BTW, anyone want their phone number?
it’s a long article but I read enough to find out it was adults that played this trick on this girl. Unbelievable.
