No one can ever be sure of that, but we can be sure that he took the photos of her, and that certainly couldn't have helped her mental state.
For the sex offenses, if truly guilty, and it is my understanding that he was convicted as such, then he should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. That said, it should also be stated that reputedly, Melody was pretty messed up to begin with....

I was also in school there during all this. I definitely remember all the rumors floating around after the suicide. She and I didn't hang out with the same people, but we did have a class together when this happened. She was a sweet girl. Does anyone REALLY know what the true story is between her and Lyons? I read an article once on the Tulsa World. From what I got out of it, her mom didn't act like he had much to do with her suicide.????
I guess what I'm trying to say here is:

It was very tragic how Melody Teague died, it really is. To be the mother and to discover her child there, having hung herself like that, absolutely nightmarish. But, the line on her was that she had some major problems to begin with, supposedly she was in need of serious attention. And, I'll go out on a limb here, take a risk here, and ask the question that others dare not: who put that rope around her neck to begin with? Because I'll betcha dollars to donuts that Ron Lyons wasn't in that house when it happened.

I'm no apologist for Ron Lyons or for what he was charged of and convicted for, and you should know that I took his arrest as a personal betrayal, having spoken with him and gotten to know him in my school years in Broken Arrow. If he is guilty, he deserves to be punished. But, people just aren't looking at all sides in this matter with Melody's suicide.

Partially true, but what you don't realize is why not back out and get a warrant based upon Officer's observation? It's what they teach if there is no exigent circumstances (ie; nobody is going to destroy evidence while your out getting a warrant)... Cheap insurance those warrants... not to mention we knew there was a lot more and wanted to do this one by the numbers...BTW, I worked Melody's suicide. She was a victim of many things regardless of her "issues" as some have written here. She was a kid, just a beautiful kid, she deserved more out of this life. Another rumor, her mother did not find her, a friend did. I can't say anything in detail but don't waste time feeling sorry for this guy. He was as sleazy as they come. Most people didn't see this side of him.

Melody was my science partner in Dr. Sargent's biology class at the time she hanged herself. We were both in the 10th grade. I didn't know Melody. She was sort of a goth before there were goths. Wore a lot of make-up. The last school day I saw her, in the minutes before the bell rang for Dr. Sargent's class, a friend of hers, a girl, came into class looking distraught. This was roughly the same time the Ronald Lyons story broke. Melody started crying and whimpered to her friend "Do they know? Do they know? Do you think they know?" They both had eyeliner streaming down their faces. The distraught friend said "Yes" and whispered some more things I don't recall and ran out. Melody started whimpering uncontrollably and crying, and then the Assistant Principal came in and took Melody out of class. I never saw her again. The next school day Dr. Sargent told us that Melody had killed herself. I didn't know there was any connection with Mr. Lyons until much later.

Melody and I were good friends during this time and the truth is no one will know exactly what happened. Melody, myself and another friend of ours hung out all the time but it was still a complete shock when she took her life.

Mr. Lyons also smoked because of his double pupil. I also had a class mate that had a double pupil who recieved a medical card to smoke for his at the age of 18. Mr; Lyons also had a room mate living with him at the time that lived in the basement where the pot was found. Who knows probably was both of there's! I was told Melody did what she did because she did not want to testify against him. But there was more than a couple of girls this happened to. I was a Junior when this came out but It was happening When I was in his class to. I knew something was wrong when at the end of every class he would give the same speech like the one on Fridays.( Have a fun and safe weekend. Don't drink or do drugs! And If you get into trouble and are afraid of calling your Parents and need help call me and I will come get you and take you home!) I acctually did call him one night but thank goodness he didn't answer my call!
