Lance Lundsten, Gay 18-Year-Old High Schooler, Takes His Life

Posted on 18 Jan 2011 at 8:14am

After a brief recess in a string of horrible losses comes word 18-year-old Jefferson High School student Lance Lundsten, of Miltona, Minnesota, has taken his own life. Lundsten, who was openly gay, was bullied in school because of it, his friends claim on the young man's Facebook memorial page, which is closed to the public. (In a separate incident, Tiffani Maxwell of Pennsylvania reportedly shot herself on Saturday morning after being tormented in school, though it appears it wasn't related to her sexuality.) Authorities responded on Saturday evening to an emergency at Lundsten's house; he was pronounced dead later at a hospital. We'll have more as more details come in.
