Fresh Violence Before a Vigil

Domestic Violence Solutions Hosts Gathering and March


Eight red silhouettes flanked De la Guerra Plaza Thursday night, representing Santa Barbara women recently killed by domestic violence. One had just been carved for Kimberly Hamilton, a 45-year-old Los Olivos woman who police suspect was shot by her husband in a murder-suicide. The Hamiltons left behind three children. Advocates, family members, and friends of victims gathered in the plaza for a vigil and march organized by Domestic Violence Solutions, which hosted two other events this month. Here, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson hugs Elizabeth Tang, whose daughter Alexandra was murdered by her boyfriend in 2012.
