Quilt project puts faces to Detroit's unsolved murders

DETROIT - Experiencing the death of a loved one through murder is excruciating enough. But to then have the case go unsolved is a whole other dimension of pain for a family. Now, those suffering have come together to do something about it.

Those in the "Remember Me Quilt Project" come together because they share a common pain that comes with being the victims of senseless violence.

They not only share stories, but also create a physical reminder of their loved ones that can be displayed a memorial. It also provides a way to promote the unsolved crimes in the hopes that someone will come forward with information.

Watch Local 4 Defender Kevin Dietz's report to learn more.

Anyone interested in meeting with the families, donating quilt supplies or making a quilt, can find out how to do so at RememberMeQuiltProject.org.
