Of Victims Everywhere] an online nonprofit
organization in Western Washington State, dedicated to serving victims of
violent crime everywhere.
My son Patrick, age 13, was murdered in the late hours of April 30 or the early hours of May 1, 1983 . . . as close as anyone can tell that is; this crime remains one of King County Washington's 150 + unsolved homicides. We present these pages to share with you, the information and experiences that we have faced in our years as victims, survivors, and victim advocates. We plan to use these pages to help in your journey along the treacherous path of the victim/survivor.
Our website will provide to you with no small amount of information and resources. If you find what is written here interesting, informative and helpful, please pass the word to others. If you wish to download information visit our download table where you will find the necessary text files for downloading. This work is driven by the need to share and help others through the devastating tragedy of violent crime.
We frequently use the terms 'Victims' and 'Survivor.' Both terms are used to define those who have suffered from, or as a result of, violent crime.
Click the e-mail icon below to send us e-mail. As you visit our other pages you may find e-mail addresses for you to post to some of our individual contributors. We usually respond in less than 12 hours.
Our pages contain articles and information relating to more specific crimes and our website contributors. Other crimes are not listed because we do not have volunteer contributors to work with them. We prefer to have victim information provided and staffed by victims of each specific crime where possible.
If you need help and can't find a resource here on our pages please e-mail us and we will help if possible. Please include the type of crime and location [city and state] where you need the help and we will respond as quickly as possible.
