I hope to see many in Concord New Hampshire for the 2011 Victims’ Rights Day. It is a time when victims of numerous crimes and their families come together and show support for one another. It is also a time to remember those we’ve lost to violent crimes and to encourage those that dedicate their lives to serving victims and their families. Last week, I learned more about what a victims’ rights advocate does. Understanding their job clearly revealed to me that they are pieces of gold a family holds on to when everything else around them is black like coal. I will be selling A Child Is Missing throughout the day, starting at 8:00 am. A portion of the profits will go to the Victims’ Rights Group. Below is the link for more information on the scheduled events.

Future events often loop back to the day when a loved one's life was taken by the hands of a murderer. Karen's sister Kathy was murdered in 1971. The case was reactivated in 1983 and again in 2004. In 2006 Kathy's remains were exhumed for DNA. A Child is Missing: Searching for Justice is the sequel to A Child Is Missing, it covers the reopening of Kathy's investigation in 2004 to present date. Karen interviewed over fifty people for the sequel and acquired new information from retired investigators. View all posts by ksbeaudin
