This is 17-year-old Ezekiel Amosu, the third teenager to die as a result of violent crime in London this year.

Amosu suffered "crush injuries" after either being pushed, or chased, into the path of a TfL bus in Walthamstow, north London. A 15-year-old will appear in court on Friday to face charges of manslaughter.

*On Tuesday, the BBC screened Scenes from a Teenage Killing, a documentary looking at every teenager who died as a result of violence in the UK in 2009.

Note: Don't Die Before You've Lived is a series of ongoing entries recording the murders of teenagers in London. Although not necessarily GBLT-related, the desperately premature loss of these young boys deserves our full attention. Please take a minute to remember their names, their faces, and spare a thought for these kids who really did die before they lived.
