Tulsa crime victim's families remember
Thursday, April 27th 2006, 3:50 PM CDT
In the wake of Tulsa's rising violent crime rate, victim's families, survivors and prosecutors honored those who have died Thursday.
The event is an annual part of National Crime Victim's Awareness Week. There have already been 28 homicides in Tulsa this year.
One of the most recent was 10-year-old Elizabeth Wagoner, who was kidnapped, assaulted and murdered by a man who lives less than two blocks away. Elizabethâ€™s father, Bill Wagoner: "Turn off the TV, turn off the computers, turn off the playstations, go out and meet your neighbors. My little girl was murdered my one of our neighbors. It's that simple. If I would have known my neighbors this wouldn't have happened."
Survivors planted flowers in honor of the victims.
