SPD launching 'Who killed me?' campaignon September 18, 2012 @ 6:14 am (Updated: 12:03 pm - 9/18/12 )
The Seattle Police Department is launching a campaign Tuesday featuring images of murder victims along with the question "Who killed me?"
Images depict victims from unsolved murders in crimes dating back to the beginning of 2010.
"We want to keep the memories alive of each person behind the headlines," says the Seattle Police Department. "We also need your help to find their killers."
Images of victims of unsolved murders in this period are featured at the Seattle Police Blotter page.
A pair of roommates killed in a home invasion of January 2010 are at the top of the list.
"Franklin Wood loved to make his friends and family laugh, with his great sense of humor and clever rhymes. He was an accomplished pencil artist, drawing detailed life like portraits," says a line about unsolved murder victim Franklin Wood.
His roommate Andis Peterson is described as his father's best friend, and "a kind, loving young man who enjoyed going paintballing with friends, and playing with his dog, Buster."
The most recent victim is Sherry Soth killed July 1 around 1:56 a.m.
"Sherry's family and friends knew her as a 'free spirit seedling traveling wherever the wind would take her. Sherry was always ready for fun and adventure, and was caring and compassionate to others in need."
The Catch a Killer page shows 16 victims currently, but will reportedly be adding victims from unsolved murders dating back to 2000.
The campaign is telling people, "Don't Stay Silent!"
"Help SPD to catch a killer and take them off our streets," says the department.
Anyone with information about any of these unsolved murders is asked to call the Homicide tip line at (206) 233-5000.
