TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The National Crime Victims' Rights week ended Friday with crime victims sharing their stories downtown.

Kansas Department of Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts spoke Friday about the death of his friend, Colorado Corrections Director Tom Clements who was murdered at his home in Colorado last month.

More than 70 people attended the rally that remembered and recognized people who had been affected by crime.

"Crime victims are everywhere in our communities," said Jeremy Barclay, Communications Director for Kansas Department of Corrections. "They represent all walks of life and a variety and host of crimes. There isn't one typical or one set person."

The organization also honored Michelle Barnes with their first ever victims voice award for her fundraising work creating t-shirts in memory of two fallen Topeka police officers.
