Break the silence: That's the goal of the Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition and IMPD.

The groups want the public to step forward and provide information to help solve the 65 unsolved murders that have occurred in our city this year.

Greg Wilson's son, 34-year-old Greg Wilson, Jr., was one of those victims. He was gunned down in broad daylight at 30th Street and Capitol Avenue. No one has been arrested for the crime.

"I hear people say, 'I ain't telling police nothing,'" Wilson said. "It could be your daughter, your sister, etc. We all can have victims in our family. They do not deserve to be in our community. They do not deserve to be protected. I'm asking you as a grieving father to turn these folks in."

Police say they know some people who have information have legitimate concerns about their safety. Chief Rick Hite says the department is in the process of addressing that issue.

"We're not so much talking about witness protection, but lifestyle change and protecting you from those who maybe in your former life may still be willing to pull in," Hite said. "I think that's a personal choice people have to make."

The Ten Point Coalition is sponsoring a march and rally this Sunday at 4 p.m. beginning at New Era Baptist Church, 517 West 30th Street.
