In Honor of Patricia Collum
This is a counselor?s corner. Sometimes victims say it better than counselors. I am publishing this in honor of Patricia Collum who was murder October 6, 1991. This was written by her sister, Mitzie.
In October 1991, my only sister, Patricia Collum, was murdered. In nineteen years, no one has been charged with her murder. Having joined VOCAL shortly after my sister?s murder, I have been involved with a number of families who have lost a loved one to violence. The lack of communication and support that I have seen from law enforcement agencies in these cases has made me aware of how fortunate we were to have the police officers that investigated my sister?s murder. I felt that their desire to solve her murder was almost as intense as my need to have it solved.
