SPRING HILL - Friends of 16-year-old Jessica Laney are planning to attend a candlelight vigil at Calvary Church of the Nazarene Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
Laney committed suicide over the weekend.
Friends of the Fivay High School student say the vigil is meant to show support for Laney’s family, and they're also hoping it will send a strong message against bullying.
Jessica's friends are convinced cyber bullying is partly to blame for her suicide.
Authorities are still investigating but they say at this time they have found no evidence of bullying.
The church is located at 235 Cobblestone Drive, Spring Hill, Fla.
