    Details of Disappearance

    Robin was last seen in Petaluma, California. He was sighted jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. He left behind a note saying he felt unwanted. He had recently told his friends he was gay, and although he hadn't told his parents this, they had suspected it. His parents stated he'd been bullied at Petaluma High School, where he was a sophomore and active in the drama department. Prior to his death he had gotten a failing grade on his school report card, and told his parents he "hated being sexual." Robin's body has never been recovered. Following his apparent death, students at Petalmua High School created a Gay/Straight Alliance in his memory.
