Ten unsolved Colorado murders on National Day of Remembrance: Read victims' personal stories

Today, on the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims, families and loved ones of those whose lives were so cruelly cut short, including Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, whose sister was slain in 2002, will gather from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside the new Denver Crime Lab, 1371 Cherokee Street.

To mark this somber occasion, we've assembled the latest in our occasional series of posts about unsolved Colorado homicides, culled from the Families of Homicide Victims and Missing Persons website.
