Natasha, who had undergone several wounds, was found dead by a train driver 150 yards from her home in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, in the earlier hours of Feb 14 this year.

Talking after the inquiry, Natasha’s parents said they worried that lyrics to one of her beloved songs — Grenade by the American Bruno Mars — may have also confident her to take her own life. The song having the lyrics: “I’d jump in front of a train for ya.”

Det Sgt Shanie Erwin told the investigator that Natasha was recognize to have got a short anonymous message enclosing personal violence via the Formspring networking site on Feb 13.

The message, which was read to the jury by Det Sgt Erwin, put down Natasha for “hiding” behind make-up. It finished: “Begin acting nicer to people or you will lose everybody. Mark my words.”

Det Sgt Erwin said Natasha, who was part of a close-knit group of 10 friends at Worcester’s Royal Grammar School, then sent back a message on Formspring asking: “Who are you?”

She was a bright and beautiful girl whose smile and sparkle lit up not only our world, but also that of her friends and all who knew her.”

The family further said that the inquiry had been “a distressing process”, but had permitted them to feel closer to their daughter.

“We think that the evocative lyrics of one of her favorite songs, Grenade by Bruno Mars, coupled with contact to various websites advising such actions, caused her to make such an immediate extreme and unexpected decision,” they said. “The family believes that the unidentified postings on the Formspring social networking website were a major donor to the incidents on Feb 13, and we consider thinking the inspiration of those who select to send spiteful and malicious messages to their peers. We can only expect that lessons have been learned.” Formspring is a question and answer based social website that gives users to ask questions about other users.
