Violent Crime victims Remembered

Posted: Updated:

Victims and survivors of violent crimes gathered Wednesday night to honor loved ones they've lost.

They were invited to place special ornaments on a Christmas tree at the Lafortune Community center at 52nd and Hudson.

The event is hosted by the Tulsa County District Attorney's office.

It's designed to provide support for those left behind.

One woman we spoke to attended to remember her friend Peggy Gaytan. She was the store clerk murdered at a Tulsa Shell gas station just three days before Christmas.

"It's emotional," says Jennifer Harmon. "I'm surprised that I would feel this much emotion, yet I think it's a good thing. It seems like a supportive environment."

The killer in Gaytan's case remains on the loose.
