The Spokane County Victim/Witness Unit is holding a vigil this afternoon in observance of the “National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims.”
The event will be held in the County Commissioners Hearing Room on the lower level of the Public Works Building (1026 W. Broadway Ave.). It begins at 5 pm with a meet-and-greet for families and friends to connect with each other, followed at 6 pm by the vigil.
Since 1951 the Victim/Witness Unit has documented 658 murders, vehicular homicides and unsolved violent crimes throughout Spokane County. While several of the cases occurred outside of the county, their families are located here.
