(CBS/AP) SARATOGA, Calif. - The family of Audrie Pott, a 15-year-old California girl who killed herself after photos of an alleged sexual assault surfaced online, says they suspect the boys responsible for the assault tried to destroy evidence.
The teen's family posted the message on Friday on the Facebook page of a foundation they set up in the girl's name. They are asking any students who may have information to come forward.
The Santa Clara County sheriff's office has not yet commented on the family's allegations.
The sheriff's office arrested three 16-year-old boys on Thursday in the September 2012 attack.
The arrests follow a similar case in Canada, where a teenaged girl hanged herself Sunday after an alleged rape and months of bullying. A photo said to be of that 2011 assault was shared online.
