Details of Disappearance

Robin was last seen in Petaluma, California. He was witnessed 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 come out to his parents, they suspected it.

His parents stated Robin had 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 disappearance, students at Petalmua High School created a Gay/Straight Alliance in his memory.
