A young girl in Michigan is facing criminal charges after her fake suicide prank on social media triggered the real suicide of an 11-year-old boy.

Police in Marquette, Michigan confirm that an unidentified juvenile is charged with malicious use of telecommunication services and using a computer to commit a crime after the boy was found unresponsive from a March 14 suicide attempt.

Katrina Goss revealed that her son Tysen Benz (above) died this week after trying to kill himself last month, which was prompted by a girl he knew faking her own suicide on social media as a prank.

Goss says the accused girl was Tysen's girlfriend, who allegedly faked her own suicide on various social media sites. She also allegedly used the social media accounts of her friends to propel the rumor of her death.

Tysen hung himself an hour into the girl's prank, according to his mother. Goss says emergency response teams were able to resuscitate him after she found him on March 14.

Machines kept Tysen alive for weeks after the incident, but the suicide attempt left him "severely brain-damaged" and unable to ever fully recover. He died in an Ann Arbor hospital on Tuesday.

The mother told People they "had to let him pass on," explaining:

Justin Bieber Fires Back At Fan Over Just $5K From His Latest Legal Loss — Get The Deets!

Justin Bieber is PISSED!

Justin Bieber sounds PISSED about his latest legal drama!

After being successfully sued by a fan over canceling his Purpose tour meet and greets, the singer is reportedly demanding the judgement be canceled.

According to the DailyMail, Melissa Matthai paid $1,856.35 for VIP packages for herself and her teen daughter to see Justin at his Miami concert in July. After not being refunded for the full price of the package, she sued the singer for "breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation, and violation of the state's Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act."

As the 23-year-old didn't show up to court or even have any legal representation there, a judge awarded Melissa the costs for the price of the packages, in addition to $3,240 to cover legal fees and court costs. All in all, it was a total of $5,298.75.

Except Justin is claiming he was never served any papers, and demanded the judgement be vacated AKA canceled. Then this week, the Canadian star hit back at Melissa, by asking the judge to sanction her for costing him money.

It's kind of alarming Bieber would be upset over $5K considering all the money he made by nearly ripping off his fans, but maybe it's the principle of the matter…

Then again, this is probably how his fans felt when he canceled those meet and greets and then wouldn't give them their money back!

Just saying…

Fox News has already been hit in the pocketbook by this Bill O'Reilly sexual harassment scandal. Now they're getting kicked while they're down.

With at least 52 companies pulling their ads from The O'Reilly Factor, the network has had a hard time keeping the hour's commercial break time fair and balanced.

They've been airing a lot of local ads during the show but also moved some nonspecific Fox News advertisers to the time slot.
