@ the fisherman,
you could check with your local cable company and have them check out the IP of the "bully"

how about just unfriend said person and change the security settings so that only people on their friends list can see their updates. The problem with facebook bullying, is it isnt really bullying unless you allow it to happen, they put in a defriend button for a reason.

If it's serious, you should work with law enforcement and Facebook security. I would strongly advise against taking action or contacting them in person. Make copies of everything and take it to your police department or other law enforcement agency dealing with cyber crime.

Apps are easy enough to delete to, and like animal said, if its serious, then the thing to do is contact the authorities, and let them handle it.
