People are gathering in Anderson to remember crime victims with a candlelight vigil. The 14th annual Candlelight Vigil for Victims of Crime is taking place Monday at the New Life Christian Center.

"We're kind of like a close community when we all get together and we remember the good of the people," says victim Ann Hollingsworth.

Hollingsworth's sister, Tina Milford, was murdered 30 years ago in Anderson County. Monday night, Milford, and dozens of other violent crimes victims are remembered in Anderson County with a candlelight vigil.

"You're anxious or whatever but your lighting that candle in remembrance of her so that one day we'll get our closure," Hollingsworth says.

Milford's killer has never been found. Hollingsworth and her family hope each day for that closure. They hope vigils like this help shed new light on their sister's case. 

This is the 14th annual Candlelight Vigil for Victims of Crime sponsored by the Greater Anderson Area Victim Advocate Association.  Debbie Hyde is speaking, she lost her daughter and unborn grandchild to homicide.

Families also share photos of their loved ones as they light candles.
