The death, following an overdose at the site Thursday, prompted Mayor Gregor Robertson to say there is an urgent need to shut down the site due to "life safety" issues.
"Obviously really really tragic circumstances - this loss of life and the overdose just a few days ago clearly demonstrate though that the situation here in camp has deteriorated. Life safety is paramount," Robertson said at an 8 p.m. media scrum on the west side of the art gallery. "I have directed the city manager to expedite the appropriate steps to end the encampment as soon as possible, with a safe resolution being absolutely critical to that."
The Sun doesn't list overdose as the cause of death. But an AP report says that a "Canadian protest organizer" said Gough likely died of an OD.
Gough's Facebook page shows a host of photos of the young woman hanging out with friends and several photos of her and others train jumping.
