In Memoriam

The South Carolina Silent Witness Story

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 11:00 a.m.

South Steps South Carolina State House Grounds

A solemn ceremony to remember those who died as a result of domestic violence during 2013

Currently South Carolina ranks second in the nation for the amount of homicides caused by criminal domestic violence. Each year in October, the Attorney General hosts a Silent Witness ceremony to honor the victims from the preceding year. During this ceremony, wooden silhouettes represent the women and men who have died due to domestic violence in South Carolina during the previous year. Attorney General Alan Wilson will read the name of each victim and the circumstances of their death. As each name is read, volunteers or family members of the victim carry the silhouette and take a place on the State House steps. The event is open to the public. For more information about Silent Witness, or to find out how you can be a volunteer, please contact the Violence Against Women Department at (803) 734-3717.
