Stress Over Lagoon Project Led To Stephenie Glas' Suicide, Boyfriend Says - Malibu, CA Patch

Stephenie Glas of Malibu, who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Saturday, had been upset over the past few weeks, especially over hostility in the community regarding the Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project, her boyfriend said.

Glas, a city of Los Angeles firefighter who had become more well known for her vocal support of the project in recent months, was heckled by protesters last week as the project got underway, said her longtime boyfriend Steve Woods.
