Charlotte Christmas tree commemorates domestic violence victims

To remember the 59 victims of domestic violence in North Carolina this year, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and members of the local Safe Alliance constructed a special holiday tree for this Christmas and hung the names of victims upon the tree, Charlotte TWC News reported on December 15.

Among those whose lives were senselessly lost due to domestic violence was Bianca Tanner, who had gone missing for over a month and whose body was found in Charlotte. Her boyfriend is facing charges of murder for her death.

Deputy City Manager Ron Kimble, who lost his only daughter to domestic violence two years earlier, said losing a loved one to this kind of indignity makes it hard for the family of the victims to accept the circumstances of their death.
