-- Loved ones asked to share victim photographs --
The Salisbury Police Victim Advocacy division will honor local murder victims with its annual video tribute on the National Day of Remembrance for Homicide Victims, Monday, Sept. 25.
Community members and families of murder victims are asked to email victim photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Sept. 15. The email should include the victim’s full birth name, date of birth and date of death. The video tribute will air on the Salisbury Police Department's social media platforms and on WSRG-TV, Salisbury’s local government access channel, on Monday, Sept. 25.
In 2007, Congress designated September 25th as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. Robert and Charlotte Hullinger formed Parents of Murdered Children following the 1978 murder of their 19-year-old daughter, Lisa, while she was studying in Germany. The annual day of observance is on the date Lisa was murdered. The annual National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims provides an opportunity to remember those lost to homicide and honor their memories.
