Charlotte’s homicide rate has been on the rise and in the news throughout this year. So far, there have been 54.
We hear about a homicide after it’s happened. But for victim’s family members, they are notified as soon as possible and often times arrive at the scene. It can be difficult and confusing as they try to process what just happened and what next steps need to be taken after a sudden loss. A group of volunteers in Charlotte is trying to ease that burden and they are exceptionally qualified as each one of them has lost someone to homicide.
