Sister murdered 28 years ago

I was a 17 year old student, day of my high school graduation when police came to our door to say my sister was found dead and a victim of homicide. She was 19. She had left home three weeks prior and got into prostitution. A man picked her up and murdered her during a sex act in his family's home. He has been in prison ever since. I never talk about this. Have only told half a dozen people about this in all these years. So afraid to open up. I am conflicted. She didn't deserve to die but she put herself in that situation. Then I think how did this happen she must not have felt loved and then i get sad for her and mad at others. I guess I haven't fully processed this yet. Any advice?

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my post and to share your heart breaking story about your precious daughter. It brought tears to eyes. It was also very helpful. You are so right. No one deserves that. She made a mistake but did not deserve that. She too never hurt anyone but herself. You have given me something I can work with. I truly appreciate it. I hope you find justice for your daughter.

My precious daughter was murdered almost two years ago. She was 29. There have not been any arrests in her case. My daughter was using drugs when she first graduated high school. We filed charges on her and she was locked up for 2yrs. She thanked us because she realized we saved her life. She continued to run with the same friends and she did have drugs in her system from the autopsy report. I don't care about that. She did not deserve to die the way she did. Someone else's hand taking the breath from her. She was beautiful, full of life and had a smile for everyone. She never hurt anyone but herself. I could not understand the drug use, but I loved her and my heart is eternally broken.

I hope you can find peace with your sister because no matter what she did not deserve what happened to her even if she did make some bad choices.
