In honor of Maryland’s murdered or missing crime victims, four annual statewide memorial services of hope and remembrance will be held in Carroll, Harford, St. Mary’s and Wicomico Counties on Sunday, April 19. The annual Memorial Services will unite families and friends of crime victims, victim service professionals, and public officials for the 26th annual event. The memorial services are sponsored by the Maryland State Board of Victim Services and the State’s Attorney’s Offices in each of the four regions.
Each year, the services mark the beginning of Maryland’s observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and feature inspirational speakers, musical performances, and quiet reflection. Family members and advocate volunteers will read the names of over 2,000 Maryland homicide, vehicular manslaughter, and missing crime victims.
Memorials will be held in four locations, hosted by local States’ Attorney’s Offices and the Maryland State Board of Victim Services:
