CHICAGO (CBS) — The families of murder victims filled the UIC Forum in the South Loop Saturday for a memorial ceremony sponsored by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office. It was the 24th consecutive year that it has sponsored the event.
To get to the auditorium for the candlelight ceremony, the victims’ families had to pass hundred of photos that filled 111 24-by-30-inch boards. They depicted children playing, new graduates and others who were laughing, hugging and appeared full of life. All had one thing in common. Each was murdered.
