Not knowing who killed my aunt is killing me


Recommended Posts

Today would have been my aunt's 37th birthday, if someone hadn't taken her away in 2013. I don't know who did it, the police don't know who did it, and it hurts so much to know that she had such a life ahead of her and that someone just took it away. Every year I think, "this year will be easier," but I'm always wrong.

I don't know how to move on without getting closure. Even just hearing her name can make me tear up, and sometimes I get so choked up over trivial things like her favorite food or smelling her perfume on the subway. I'm fine for the most part, I can usually talk about her freely and discuss what happened, but then I have my moments when her death feels just as fresh as when I was 13 years old. 

How can I ever move on without knowing what happened?

Dear Wanderer00,

I'm sorry for your pain and sorrow. It sounds like you are having complicated grief over the circumstances of your aunt's passing. 

I would try and seek out additional supports through grief counselling or a grief support group.

I hope this site can help you. Grief in Common. The owner of the site is offering Zoom sessions right now because of Covid.

Thinking of you.
