2013 walker county memorial 2On April 23, 2013 Walker County unveiled and dedicated the Walker County Crime Victim’s Memorial Fountain, the first of its kind, located in the center of the Courthouse Square in downtown Jasper, Alabama.  The fountain was established after District Attorney Bill Adair, Jr. met with victims in April 2011 shortly after taking office.

The victims’ families expressed and interest in a memorial and the District Attorney along with several of these families worked for two years to get approval from local government entities and to fund and construct this fountain themselves.

The fountain is a 70 pound stainless steel bowl and granite monument with water flowing over.  It contains the memorial bricks of homicide victims dating back several decades.  The Memorial Fountain was unveiled at the Second Annual Crime Victim’s Candlelight Vigil in downtown Jasper as over 500 people crowded the Jasper Square.  The Memorial Fountain serves as a reminder of the cost of violent crime in our communities and the effect it has on all citizens.  The Walker County victims that originated this idea generously allowed District Attorney Bill Adair to put his father’s (a murder victim from Lawrence County in 1981) memorial marker next to their own relatives markers.  “My family is honored to have my father’s marker next to your loved ones markers.”
