Vicious bullying is happening in here in the Ohio Valley, and it's not just in schools.
In the age of social media, bullies can follow their victims home, through Twitter, Facebook and text messaging.
That's why two graduates of a local high school are trying to put a stop to it.
Katy and Leann Romitti created the Facebook group "Not In This Town WV - Anti-Bullying in Schools" on Wednesday. It serves as a place for victims of bullies to share their stories and get support from their community.
"It's to show the people being bullied that they are being supported and that they are not alone in this," Katy said. "They have somewhere they can post videos or they can talk and just see that people are standing behind them."
