Profile Information

About Me:
I am a practicing attorney in Los Angeles County, California.
About my Loss:
In 2003 my youngest brother, Christopher John Walsh, age 37, was murdered. He had been shot in the back of the head multiple times. His body was sealed in a 90-gallon trash can which was discovered in a storage facility. After it became apparent that material witnesses were not coming forward, either out of fear of the killers or because they were not inclined to cooperate with law enforcement, I became actively involved in the case. The pain of having a family member murdered is almost unbearable. Participating n the investigation helped me to focus on something other than the grisly details of my brother's murder. After 4 1/2 years, the murderers were convicted and will spend the rest of their lives in prison. I wrote about my experience. My book "Nobody Walks" will be released on February 5, 2013 by Thomas Dunne Books, a Division of St. Martin's Press. My story is an unusual one, but the grief I still suffer creates a common bond with all family members of murder victims. I mention in my book that when a family member is murdered it's a club you're not asked to join, you're just in. I would like to become involved in speaking with other people who have had family members taken by the callous act of murder, and hopefully be able to offer them some solace. There is no single manner or method to grieve, every person must find his or her own way in dealing with such tragedy. Good luck to all of you in finding that path.

Thanks for your kind words. Part of me wants to be around people and part of me doesn't.

I'm so sorry about your brother.

Thanks for the words of hope. I have tried to help with my brothers case but the detective in charge & the D A have not given me much hope unless someone eventually talks. There were many witnesses but most of them were the suspects friends.
It gives me hoping knowing you finally got justice.
