“Reflections of a Murder Victim’s Daughter on the Death Penalty & Its Abolition”
Miriam Hans & Mark Meade
In January 2000, Louisville native Cecil Byrd was shot and murdered at his home when four armed
robbers broke into the missionary compound in Mozambique where he was stationed. His daughter,
Miriam Hans, was shocked and angry – but was influenced by her mother’s forgiveness of the killers.
Hans will share her reflections about the proper punishment for those who commit such violent, lifeending
crimes, and why the death penalty is not the right choice for victims’ families. Mark Meade,
Assistant Director of Bellarmine’s Merton Center and a Board member with the Kentucky Coalition to
Abolish the Death Penalty (KCADP), will follow with an update on recent efforts to abolish the death
penalty in Kentucky.
