Chico, Calif. -- Pleasant Valley High School Principal John Shepherd says he's narrowed down the person responsible for a serious cyberbullying case involving a PV student.
While Shepherd is not saying exactly who was responsible, he said there have been several meetings with all the parties involved.
The PV principal said the number of suspects in last week's cyberbullying incident has been reduced down to one to two suspects.
Last week Action News Now talked about a Pleasant Valley High School senior who was being bullied over the photo-sharing app, Instagram.
On Thursday, many of those messages were getting a lot of attention online after a friend of the victim posted some of the screenshots for others to see.
The Superintendent of the Butte County Office of Education, Tim Taylor, said the PV cyberbullying incident was horrible and an indicator of what's going on nationally and state-wide with bullying.
"I think anytime a child is being threatened, our schools step up and it's no different if it's face to face and we'll take it all the way to the police because it is a threat against a child and school and our schools work very carefully in that area," said Taylor.
The PV Principal confirmed the cyberbullying culprits are not PV students. He would not say any other information regarding their gender, age or relationship to the PV student.
