WTF is wrong with people..... it's a scary, scary world :(


Could you please do a retrospective on the slaying of 12 year old Eric Hope?  He was murdered on the night of October 23, 1981 @ 1269 Fairfax Street. I was 10 years old at the time and lived a block and a half away from him. Although we didn't attend the same school, I remember his murder vividly. Being from the neighborhood and curious about the incident, my mother took me by the house the day after the killing, driving first past the front of the house, then down the alley behind the residence. As we were driving past in the alley I saw his bloody mattress removed from his home by Denver homicide detectives, and it's an image I will take to my grave, as you can imagine. I just think he should be remembered by the public, I know I think about him all the time. Thanks.
