Ian August - 2002

The tragic death of 14-year-old Ian August showed the state of Utah exactly what was needed in light of oversight of the wilderness industry.

But despite this oversight is still needed. Teenagers continue to die in residential programs in Utah. The tragic death also showed exactly how corporate lack of responsibility works. The owners continued in the business under new names. The employees just moved on to the next program working exactly the same.

For his family his death was tragic and a loss they properly forever would be affected by. That makes it extra senseless that none never really was brought to justice for his death.

May he find peace where he is now.
