District Attorney Honors Murder Victims on National Day of Remembrance

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.  – September 25 is the 14th annual observance of the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims (NDoR).

“Today let us continue to honor our nation's murder victims and pray for the surviving family members whose lives were forever changed by an act of violence,” said District Attorney Michael Ramos. “While our actions today cannot change the horrific past, it is my hope that our shared efforts will, at the very least, seek to remind us of the common bond we share as Americans. Their loss is our loss, and their pain is our pain. We must never forget.”

To view a short video featuring District Attorney Ramos paying tribute to 14-year-old murder victim Tristan Jensen, visit the San Bernardino County District Attorney YouTube page at or click here.

In the video, Ramos travels to the scene of the crime and recalls the gruesome murder.

“I was a trial lawyer in the Major Crimes Division when this case was assigned to me,” said Ramos. “Here was a little boy with his whole life ahead of him who was stabbed and killed and then stuffed into the sewer by a cold and callous killer. I will never forget Tristan, and it’s because of him and all the victims we encounter, that we continue to fight for justice.”
