Death Sparks Anti-Bullying Movement in Western Kentucky

The death of a 14-year-old Christian County girl has sparked a movement against bullying and suicide. The movement started this month after Miranda Campbell fatally shot herself.

Felty and Campbell's father say the teen was bullied because she was bisexual.
