TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—A state Senate bill passed earlier this year has spurred a movement across Indiana to help raise awareness for unsolved crimes. The movement has made its way to Greater Lafayette and advocates are hoping it'll bring closure to families. Unsolved crime advocates are planning a March for Justice event.
True Crime Investigates host and Delphi native Anthony Greeno said Senate Bill 177 will give families of unsolved crimes new found hope. The Victims Rights Law allows them to request a new investigation through the Indiana State Police.
"There are a lot of circumstances where individuals feel hopeless that the cases have went on for so long that there's never going to be a resolution," said Greeno.
Anthony lost his mother in 1996 when he was ten. The cause of death was undetermined. After years of searching for answers he found a passion to help others after the death of Abby & Libby.
This year Anthony held his first 'March For Justice' event in Muncie.
"Putting out missing flyers, we are putting out posters of suspects in different crimes and it's basically to create unity within different families that are going through the same thing," said Greeno.
That same support system is making its way to Greater Lafayette.
"The ultimate goal for this one is really just to raise awareness and educate people on the new enrolled act 177," said Greeno.
The march is planned for August 21st at Riehle Plaza. It starts at 10 A-M ending at 8 P-M.
