March 12, 2016 – Senseless violence is more than breaking news and headlines. It leaves behind love ones who plea for the violence to end and for the dreadful crime that has taken a loved one to be solved for closure.
A candlelight vigil in memory of Charles (Tae) Flagg and Charles Leehill Murph will be held beginning at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, March 13, 2016 in the 1400 block of Section Rd. The deaths of crime victims Flagg and Murph happened within one block of one another. Flagg was shot on October 18, 2015 at 8 p.m. in the 1400 block of Section Rd. while Murph was shot on September 30, 2015 at 2:45 a.m. in the 1373 block of Section Rd. These two families are joining efforts to call attention to their losses and the deaths that are still unsolved.
The candlelight vigil is sponsored in cooperation with UCanSpeakForMe, a non-profit founded by Hope Dudley, after the murder of her son Charles (Chaz) Dudley in September 2007. UCanSpeakForMe provides support to grieving family members who have had their lives touched by violence. Vigils permit loved ones of the family to remember their loved ones and to call recognition to violence and its affects on our community.Type your paragraph here.

We Must Continue To Speak Out
No one can prevent crime except by individual choices. But when crime occurs the authorities want to find the guilty. Families want justice. The process can be complicated.
My name is Hope Dudley. My son was the 55th homicide victim in the City of Cincinnati in September 2007.
