MOORE, Okla. - A dangerous case of cyberbullying in school has parents in Moore concerned.

Parents say they have had enough and won't stand for bullying in their school anymore.

A father, who would like to remain anonymous, says his daughter has been brought into the cyberbullying situation at Highland East Junior High.

He says a hate page was created on Instagram that was directed at his daughter's best friend.

The anonymous page uses profanity and hateful words to tear down the young girl.

The person hiding behind the page has even gone as far to tell the girl to kill herself, blaming her for the suicide of her sister.

The father of the a student says he's reached out to the school district, but they told him nothing can be done about it.

He says he's concerned for his daughter.

"It's scary, because like I said I have four kids and knowing that that's a possibility for them to be bullied to this extreme is scary," said the concerned father.

Moore Police have been made aware of the situation and have sent a detective to the school to investigate.

Officials say this is the most severe case of threats within the school system they have seen in recent years and they will find who is responsible.

"We actually have a detective over at the school now. I don't think the kids understand that are doing this, how serious it is. This detective has the ability to track IP addresses and things like that and we will figure out who has posted the page and take measures at that time," said Jeremy Lewis from the Moore Police Department.
