CPSO said no evidence Hannah Pauley was cyber bullied

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso said based on evidence they've gathered from the death of 15-year-old Hannah Pauley, cyber-bullying doesn't seem to be the cause. As for bullying in person, Mancuso said it is near impossible to prove verbal or face-to-face bullying happened to Hannah Pauley.

"We've looked into every allegation. We've interviewed everyone whose name has come up in order to check the rumors out that we're hearing," Mancuso said. He said there's nothing they can put down that she's been bullied except for rumors, which haven't been proved.

"We don't feel like there's any evidence at this time that anybody should be arrested or charges with any type of crime in her death," Mancuso said.

But Hannah's father, Len Pauley believes his daughter was being bullied.

"She would come home a lot and say people would call her and say things and have text messages," Len Pauley said. He said it was constant and his daughter endured a lot.

"She's at peace and these kids can't hurt her any longer," Pauley said.

But even if there hasn't been any evidence that bullying did indeed occur, it's a subject that should not be taken lightly.

Calcasieu Parish Superintendent of Schools Wayne Savoy said if bullying is happening at the schools, the school board addresses the situation. Savoy said there is a zero-tolerance bullying policy and bullying at school can result in a level three infraction, which means the student doing the bullying can be suspended or expelled.

"As soon as it's reported we begin investigation. We don't take it lightly," Savoy said.
