INDIANAPOLIS — As the city is on pace to break another tragic record for homicides in 2021, WRTV is working to help the community remember the victims of all this violence.

They are more than lines on spreadsheet and dots on a map. Each death has brought tragedy to a family. Each soul lost to violence has a ripple effect that permeates the community and makes us all less safe.

Through this story, we are remembering the people we've lost this year to the violence.

Here are their names and details on how they died. Whenever possible, we will show you their faces.

If your friend or loved one is on this list, we'd like to hear from you. If your life has been impacted by a homicide, we want to hear from you. Contact WRTV reporter Vic Ryckaert at victor.ryckaert@wrtv.com or on Twitter at @vicryc.

To everyone who has lost someone, we are so sorry.
