James Lamb - 1980

14 year old James Lamb was sent on a sailing boat operated by Visionquest. It sank when it entered weather the crew hadn't been trained to handle.

It seems lacking responsability sending untrained teenager into dangerous weather but without anyone alive to charge, the family were only able to be alone with their grief.

He never really saw the world.

May he find peace where he is now.

Laura Hanson - 1998

The 17 year old Laura Hanson choked to her death.

After Hanson got into a fight with her roommate, two employees at a West Palm Beach mental health center entered her room and placed her in a hold. Within 10 minutes, she was limp and unconscious. That evening, she was dead.

Her deaths was one of two deaths at the same center.

It remains unclear based on the articles whether some were held responsible for her death. Restraints back in the late 1999's claimed the lives of many teenagers. All she suffered from was Schizophrenia and it became a deadly illness due to poor instructions, lack of oversight and legislation. It was a real tragedy.

May she find peace where she is now.

Chaim Weiss - 1986

15 year old Chaim Weiss was found dead in his bed at the Orthodox Jewis boarding school. None have been able to find out how the killer made it into his dormitory room. He was stabbed repeatedly.

There were several signs that the killer was aware of the victims religious belief. A window had been left open slightly in the victim's room, which, according to Orthodoxy, enables the spirit of the dead to depart. Beyond that, a lighted mourning candle was placed on Chaim's desk.

If anyone could come forward with information, his family would like to get some kind of closure.

15 years was a short time to be allowed to live. May he find peace where he is now.
