This handbook is intended to assist family and friends of homicide victims in their grieving process and to explain what lies ahead with respect to the criminal case.
”The more you know about the criminal justice system, the more comfortable you may feel as various steps in the process occur. The material in this handbook is designed to help you understand the effects the crime may have on you and your family. This information will not solve all your problems or answer all of your questions, however we hope it will explain how and where to find help. We hope you will feel less alone, and comforted by the knowledge that there are many people who genuinely care about you and your well-being.”
