The son of a recent murder victim is calling on nationals of this country to do their part in quelling the spiraling crime rate.

Stephen Broadbridge

Stephen Broadbridge, son of 79 year old Dr. Claire Broadbridge, made the call while speaking on television this morning.

Dr. Broadbridge was found with her throat slit in what appears to be a home invasion gone wrong.

Her home was set on fire subsequent to her death in what appeared to be an attempt to cover up her death.

Her son Stephen says is it time people take a stand and stop being cowards.

Mr. Broadbridge is urging citizens to stop letting the criminals dominate the country.
