FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Several family members of murder victims are sending a message to Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry and Allen County Prosecutor Karen Richards.
The group "Justice Accountability Victim Advocacy," or JAVA, wrote messages out front of Citizens Square calling for action.
The group wants people to understand the resources available to witnesses to help bring justice to many families across the city.
"I can't justify 125 people losing their lives since January 2016 and only a small percentage of people locked up for their murders," said David Miller, whose grandson was killed last in 2018.
The group is hoping laws will be passed to add working surveillance cameras in many areas where people are killed in the city.
