We Remember

Only 63.8 percent of homicides were cleared according to FBI statistics for 2008. That would mean for the 14,225 murders in the U.S. in 2008, 5,150 are unsolved, or, at least, there is no arrest. That means that a lot of people are getting away with murder. We propose an on-line memorial for victims of murder. To do this we solicit brief histories of the victims, the crime, a photograph of the victim, and a case contact for the law enforcement agency with jurisdiction in the case.
