The term “closure” stirs complex emotions within countless families. It’s a concept that doesn’t always sit well with those who have experienced the tragic loss of a loved one due to murder, individuals who have endured assault, and even detectives who sense that the full narrative of a victim remains untold. The question lingers: Can closure exist when there’s no way to recover what’s been taken away? No court ruling can ever resurrect a slain parent, a cherished colleague, or a best friend or erase the trauma inflicted upon a survivor of sexual assault. For many people, it’s entirely understandable that no jail time served by a perpetrator could ever compensate for the profound suffering endured by the victims and their families.
