"Day of Remembrance" to Honor Homicide Victims

Hattiesburg-area homicide victims are being remembered this weekend.

About two dozen family members and friends of victims of homicide gathered to reflect on the loss of their loved ones at the Kamper Park pavillion Friday night.

The event was a prelude to the National Day of Remembrance next week and it was hosted by the group, Parents of Murdered Children.

It was an opportunity to share experiences and meet others who have lost members of their families.

The National Day of Remembrance is coming up on Monday.
