A 24-year-old UK man has admitted to posting threats on the Facebook tribute page of a teenager killed after being thrown from a truck.
He told police he didn't think anybody would take the threats seriously. He was very wrong.
Bob Burls, a veteran computer crime investigator, explains how to report an internet troll to the authorities.
