Office of Cobb District Attorney recognizes National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims
(Marietta, GA – Sept. 25, 2023) Cobb District Attorney Flynn D. Broady, Jr. would like to recognize today as a National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims.
In 2007, Congress designated Sept. 25 as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. Robert and Charlotte Hullinger, of Cincinnati, 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 gives us all the opportunity to remember those lost to homicide, and honor their memories. The purpose of this event is to focus on the impact of murder on families, and communities, and ways to support and serve survivors.
“Our mission is to make the community safer and by giving voices to those who cannot speak for themselves,” said DA Broady. “We are here to support survivors and all who have been impacted by homicide.”
The District Attorney’s Office lobby features photos of those who lost their lives to homicide in Cobb. Sadly, we continue to add photos to the wall each year. Download pictures below.
Cobb County will hold its annual Homicide Vigil at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 14 at the Cobb Superior Courthouse, 70 Haynes St. This will be the first in-person vigil since 2019. If you or a loved one would like to attend, please RSVP to Victim Witness Unit staff by calling 770-528-3047 or emailing VictimAssistance@cobbcounty.org
