Bullies allegedly orchestrated Cassidy Trevan's gang rape when she was just 13

Bullies allegedly orchestrated Cassidy Trevan's gang rape when she was just 13

The mother of a teenager who took her own life after she was sexually assaulted and relentlessly tormented by school bullies said a part of her died with her only child.

Cassidy Trevan was just 15 when she took her own life in 2015, two years after bullies at her Melbourne school allegedly organised for her to be gang raped aged just 13.

Her mother Linda Trevan has spent the last four years campaigning for justice for her daughter.

The 53-year-old told Women's Day it has been an uphill battle for her, and confessed she had turned to alcohol for comfort in the early days.

'For a short while, I became an alcoholic,' Ms Trevan said. 

Cassidy was allegedly lured to a home by two girls from her school who - after bullying her incessantly - told her they wanted to be her friend.

When she arrived, she was reportedly greeted by a group of older boys who also attended their school, who gang-raped the teen.

'She told me every single horrific thing they did to her and made her do... She was a sweet innocent child. She had a boyfriend but hadn't even kissed him. She was terrified and froze as they abused her,' Ms Trevan said.
