Justice for Homicide Victims

Posted: Updated:

In a typical year, about 500 people are murdered in the metropolitan Los Angeles area. Usually, only about 40% of those murders are prosecuted. The remainder are unsolved for a variety of reasons. In some cases, investigators are unable to identify the killer, in others they have suspects but they lack enough evidence to prove their case.

The result is many families never get the justice they deserve.

That's why Justice for Homicide Victims was established several years ago as a support and advocacy organization for the families and friends of murder victims.

The organization meets on the third Thursday evening of every month in Downtown Los Angeles at the Denny's Restaurant at 530 Ramirez Street, at the Vignes off ramp from the northbound Hollywood Freeway/US Highway 101. The location is directly behind Los Angeles Union Station. Meetings begin at 7:00 pm.

The organization's website is: www.justiceforhomicidevictims.net.
