Seattle group works to create permanent memorial for Green River victims
Memorial will bring negative notoriety
Noel Gomez, a former prostitute, co-founded the Organization for Prostitution Survivors, is raising money to memorialize the victims of Gary L. Ridgway, the Green River killer. “I feel like they are my sisters,” Gomez said. (ERIKA SCHULTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES)
What a terrible idea [“ ‘It’s still a huge wound’: Remembering the Green River victims,” page one, March 20]!
Mass murderers delight in the notoriety and sensationalism resulting from their crimes. If these people are memorialized because of the manner of their deaths, we will have every murderer trying to outdo him in their own quest for notoriety.
