BREAKING: Dr. Amanda Graystone Apparently Jumps from Pantheon Bridge is a The Caprican News article written by Sharon Edmonson. It was printed in Martius 30, YR42.


Police and rescue workers are still searching for Dr. Amanda Graystone after she was seen to fall (or jump?) from the Pantheon Bridge into the deep waters below - a drop of nearly 100 meters. Police say no note was found at the scene and would not confirm this as a suicide attempt. Sources say her wedding ring was discovered on the rail where she jumped and a pair of women's shoes was found nearby as well. It seems Graystone jumped from a balcony of one of the imposing concrete towers embellished with the busts of the 12 deities.

If this does turn out to be a suicide, Dr. Graystone would be far from the first to jump from the Pantheon, Caprica City's widest bridge. The bridge has always attracted its share of jumpers, yet only a few have survived the drop to the deep, turbulent waters below. This incident is especially troubling for Bridge and Tunnel Commissioner Timothy Caldwell, whose team was about to being installing safety rails on the bridge later this month. "This was the kind of incident we were trying to prevent," said Caldwell who was clearly shaken by the news. "Sadly, it looks like we were too late for Dr. Graystone."

This is not the first time in recent months that Amanda Graystone has made headlines. First, Daniel and Amanda Graystone lost their daughter Zoe in the MAGLEV bombing. Soon after, Amanda Graystone revealed her daughter's supposed link to the STO and involvement in the bombing. And Dr. Graystone made a surprise appearance during her husband Daniel's Backtalk interview, saving him from what might have otherwise been a disastrous episode. As the Global Defense Department investigation into the MAGLEV attack remains ongoing, many still blame the Graystones. Perhaps the last few months of intense scrutiny and pressure by the people of Caprica were just too much for Amanda Graystone.

Daniel Graystone could not be reached for comment. We will continue to keep you updated as this story develops.
