A New Zealand connection is being investigated to the death of a Canadian girl who had been cyber-bullied.

Amanda Todd was the victim of bullying both at school and online after she posted revealing photos.

It became so intense she ended up taking her own life.

Now a 17-year-old Raglan boy who carried on attacking Ms Todd after her death is being investigated, for putting risqué pictures of her on a Facebook memorial page.

The Online Police Child Exploitation team has received more than 20 complaints from New Zealand and overseas.

Police have removed the images and shut down his Facebook page.
