A rally and memorial service took place in downtown Cleveland, Ohio on Tuesday for murdered nurse Aliza Sherman, who was killed in 2013. Her family members and friends spoke and lit yizkor candles in her memory.
Her daughter told the Cleveland Jewish News that the large turnout at the service was testament to the many lives she helped at the Cleveland Clinic. After a year of investigation a suspect in the murder has yet to be found, although grainy video footage shows an attacker fleeing the scene. A $50,000 reward is being offered for any information leading to solving the crime, one of the largest reward offers on city record.
Friends and family have established the Justice For Aliza organization which organized the distribution of self-defense literature at the memorial service.
