San Francisco Magazine, “Gone”, December, 2008

This story about teen suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge featured Casey, Jonathan Zablotney and Henry Lew  who all took their lives at the bridge.  In the last four years, 16 young people have climbed over the rail and jumped. These kids weren’t crazy. They were in the throes of painful - and impulsive - adolescence. Then, suddenly, they were gone.
