The Outspoken Survivors

By Aren LeBrun

Public records from the Boston Police Department reveal there are more than 900 unsolved murders in three city neighborhoods: Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan.

The widow of one victim whose murder remain unsolved, Mary Franklin, has started the Women Survivors of Homicide Movement to raise awareness.

When a family’s murder isn’t solved, there is this extra sadness because you know that there’s somebody walking around the street who killed your loved one,” said Franklin. “It’s just this horrific, torturing pain that you have to deal with every single day of your life.”
