CrimeShots'© Mission Statement

Visit forums to discuss any of these cases

CrimeShots © is a digest compiled from a broad spectrum of opinion, news, and media resources.

CrimeShots © cares about victims. Oftentimes, after a murder is committed, the killer is arrested and all the attention suddenly focuses solely on him/her. The victim is soon forgotten. Most of us know the names of many notorious killers, however, it is quite likely that we could name only a very few of their victims. To forget them is heartbreaking, especially for their families.

-Please do something, anything that will positively influence our future and our future generations
