Jordan Agar died in a moped crash last week, one day after his 16th birthday.
Despicable online bullies set up a Facebook account in his name and sent his mother a message that read: “I’m not really dead.”
They even stooped so low as to invite her to his birthday party and requested intimate pictures of his brother’s girlfriend.
Facebook have now removed the profile and Staffordshire Police are investigating.
Jordan’s mother said: “I want these callous people caught. I hope they are found and prosecuted.”
A spokesman for Facebook added: “It’s against Facebook’s rules to intimidate or harass others, and we provide everyone with the tools to report such content via specific links across every page of our site.
“When abuse is reported to us we react swiftly, and we will disable accounts that are found to be in breach of our terms.”
Offensive online comments can be deemed a criminal offence if they are proved to have caused harassment, alarm or distress to a victim.
