The Mission of POMC:

POMC makes the difference through on-going emotional support, education, prevention, advocacy, and awareness.

POMC Vision Statement:

To provide support and assistance to all survivors of homicide victims while working to create a world free of murder.


The Greater Portland Area Chapter of Parents Of Murdered Children is proud to announce that the parents of Kaylee Sawyer, Jamie and Crystal Sawyer, will be having the “Kaylee Anne Sawyer Story” on Dateline NBC.  It will be aired this Friday, April 27 at 9:00 pm, Pacific Standard Time.  This will be a 2-hour production.

Not only will we see how this family copes, but, they are also using it to see that there is a change in how the schools who are responsible for protecting our children when going to college do not let the students down.  Kaylee was murdered by an employee of COCC, the college she was to be attending.  

The Attorney General’s office in Oregon is already looking into this to pass legislation to protect our children.  It should be a chance for all of us to help make a difference.   In addition, we want to thank the National Office for helping us get the information out to all POMC members.

Thank you, Mary Elledge
Oregon Chapter Leader
