Homicide Victims/Co-Survivors

A homicide survivor or co-survivor is anyone who has been impacted by the death of a loved one by homicide. This includes a spouse, partner, children, siblings, and friends.

It is normal for adults and children to experience such intense feelings in the days and weeks following a homicide, and then periodically over time. Survivors are at risk of developing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other problems. Support and counseling are often very helpful in managing these overwhelming emotions.

September 25: National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims

The resolution states that this day provides “an opportunity for the people of the United States to honor the memories of murder victims and to recognize the impact on surviving family members.”
