WITNESS TELEVISION SHOW LETTER TO SURVIVORS
Greetings from Final Witness,
I am the
executive producer of Final Witness, a new true crime series
for ABC Televisionthat will
premiere in 2012.When I
conceived Final Witness it was as an antidote of sorts to
standard true crimesensationalism.
I envisioned the series as victim-focused and one created out
of thememories and thoughts of the
people who knew and loved that person best. We workclosely with victims’ families to tell the stories of
the LIVES of their loved-ones, not justthe stories of their deaths. In every tragedy there is
something to be learned and to be
carried forward, and that’s the stuff from which our show
comes. It is our hope that thestories will speak to the
complexity of human relationships and the resilienceof the human spirit. We also hope that it might serve
as a part of the healing process for
the victim’s family and will inspire the audiences who will be
Finally, I should add here that we make a
contribution of $10,000 in the victim’s name tothe charity of his or her family’s choice and that our
format requires that all cases must
be fully adjudicated.
As you consider whether your story is a good
match for our show, please feel free to
contact Rebecca Morton, our show’s researcher.
She can be reached at

happy to answer any questions or

Federal Funding and the Board of Directors closed it down sometime
this year. I have no further information on the status of
I have been with this organization since 1995
and created this website in memory to my son. There
have been many brave men and women, whom I have met over the
years, who have suffered a loss so great there are no words to
describe the pain and injustices they have had to bear.
I hope that we can help them remember the victims.
I still have contact information to many of the
victims families and the police working on some cases. The
OMI is offering grief support groups...see the sidebar.
This web site will remain alive as long as I
can continue to update it. If you are a survivor of homicide
and would like an unsolved case or a memorial page please contact
Mexico Survivors of Homicidewas a Not-For-Profit 501(c)3 organization founded
in 1996. They provided support and information for survivors of homicide about the
grieving process, the criminal justice system and all other issues
pertaining to the survivors of a victim of murder.
The following information is provided as a service because we know the devastation that a
loved one's murder causes. We hope that the information may help, in some way,
the painful process of dealing with the horrific crime of murder against the
innocent victims, their family and friends.
Here is some of what you will find in each section of our site:
our Memorial pages you
will find the names of many victims who were murdered in New
Mexico or whose loved ones live in New Mexico, with links to
our Unsolved pages law
enforcement and survivors are asking for your help! You will
find links to cold cases and open investigations which need
additional information to apprehend the murderers.

the NM Office of the
Medical Investigator decided to no longer supply NMSOH the next
of kin of homicide victims and at this time are not even giving
us the names of homicide victims. We need you to
notify us if you would
like to be added to our mailing list or to add your loved one to
our list of victim's names. We are sorry for any pain this
may cause families and are working to try to resolve this
problem with the OMI or other agencies that may be able to
assist us in locating the names of new victims and their next
of kin contact information. We are trying to reach out to
all survivors in the State of New Mexico and those of you who
are NM residents and have had loved one murdered elsewhere.
