Who are the victims of violent crimes? Is it just the person who was killed, raped or otherwise brutalized, or is it also the friends and families of the victims? Of course, the answer is both, as revealed in this story of Karen Gregory, a 36-year-old graphic artist who, in May 1984, was brutally attacked, raped, and stabbed to death by an unknown assailant. The crime devastated her boyfriend, her family, and her close friends. As the search for the killer seemed to fall through the cracks for want of an answer, her friends and family became increasingly depressed, fearful, and unable to cope. When a close neighbor was arrested and put on trial, they were pushed aside, forbidden from entering the courtroom. All rights apparently belonged to the accused. This book goes beyond being a true crime and courtroom drama; by focusing on the rights of victims, it gives readers a perspective not often told. A worthwhile acquisition for public library collections.
