Welfare Check: 36000 Block of Stone Meadow Lane Purcellville VA

Police received a call to check the welfare of a 14-year-old who made comments online, while on a gaming platform, mentioning suicidal statements. The call came from the platform’s security department, as they monitor user comments for safety reasons. While the IP address indicated a Comcast server in town, the investigation revealed that the actual address was located in Loudoun County. Deputies responded and met with the parents and the child. The investigating officer from Purcellville had a follow-up phone call with the parents to share with them some of the specific and disturbing comments posted by their child so that they could make an informed decision as to the next steps necessary to ensure the child’s safety.
