Woman in MySpace Suicide Case Moving Away From Neighborhood

The woman charged in a MySpace hoax that allegedly led to a 13-year-old girl's suicide is moving out of her Missouri neighborhood to an undisclosed location.

Lori Drew and her family have decided to leave their Dardenne Prairie, Mo., home and will move within a week, according to a report in the St. Charles Journal.

"I don't honestly know where we are going," Drew, 49, told the paper.

A federal judge in California is weighing a possible dismissal of the charges against Drew in connection with the hoax that led to the 2006 suicide of her teen neighbor Megan Meier.

Drew is accused of helping to create a false-identity account on the social networking site MySpace and harassing the teen with cruel messages in order to find out what Megan was saying about her own daughter. The girls had had a recent falling out.

Drew is scheduled to appear in federal court in Los Angeles on Oct. 7.

"I wish it would have happened a long time ago," Megan's father, Ron Meier, said of the Drews' move. "Hopefully, the next time I ever see them again is Oct. 7 and no more from then on."

Meier told the Journal that neighbors had informed him of the move.

The paper reported that the Drews had lowered the asking price of their home to $229,900. It was unclear whether the house had been sold or was still under contract.

Drew has pleaded not guilty to the federal charges against her.
