Carolyn and Robert Conley are photographed with posters of their son Kevin on Friday, April 24, 2009. Kevin Conley jumped from the All-America Bridge in Akron, Ohio on March 30, 2006. The Conleys have pushed for the city to construct a fence on the bridge since Kevin's death. Akron plans to use federal stimulus money to build a fence on the bridge, also known as the "Y-Brdge" and "Suicide Bridge," in hopes to prevent future suicide jumpers.
