Parents of Murdered Children was founded by Charlotte and Bob Hullinger in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1978, three months after their daughter, Lisa, died from injuries inflicted by here former boyfriend. Father Ken Czillinger, a Roman Catholic priest active in leading support groups for the bereaved, directed the Hullingers to others whose children had been murdered and met with the group during the first few months. In their mutual grieving, the parents discovered that by listening to each other, by crying together, and by understanding how each felt, their grief was lessened. Parents of Murdered Children has expanded to include other family members and friends who are survivors and now has chapters and contact people throughout the United States and abroad.
