Day of Remembrance 2022

National Day of Remembrance
for Murder Victims

September 25th is the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. This commemorative day was established as a result of unanimously passed resolutions by the U.S. Senate in October 2007 and the U.S. House of Representatives in May 2007.

In 2007, Congress designated September 25th as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims.  Robert and Charlotte Hullinger, of Ohio, formed a support organization for others walking their path called Parents of Murdered Children following the 1978 murder of their 19-year-old daughter, Lisa, while she was studying abroad 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 to honor their memories.  Please join the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office family as we honor these victims and their families by keeping them in your thoughts.
