A new granite wall engraved with 1,500 murder victims' names will be unveiled in downtown Riverside Monday. The wall now sits in the Victims' Courtyard but will be unveiled outside Riverside's downtown law building.

Riverside District Attorney Rod Pacheco will preside over the 5 p.m. ceremony. He and family members of murder victims are set to speak during the solemn event.

On a news release announcing the unveiling of the wall, the DA's office compared the Victim's Wall to the Vietnam veterans' Memorial Wall, saying it will serve as a way to remember and pay tribute to victims of violent crime in Riverside County.
