Sophie Lancaster: Causes

She and her boyfriend were attacked because she was classed as a goth. The group of teens attacked her because they didn't like the way she looked, and therefore felt that she no longer needed to exist. They attacked her in the head, leaving her in a deep coma. She was taken to many hospitals, as she was not recovering, and after many attempts, the family decided to turn off the life support, and on the 24th of August 2007, she died. All of this was because of the way she and her boyfriend dresses and looked.
