CRIME SCENE QUILTS
As a former assistant prosecuting attorney currently in private practice, Vickie Hylton often hears from child protective services workers who describe children being carried from crime scenes or abusive homes with only the clothes on their back.
“It’s bad enough you’re being taken away from your home without anything you own,” Hylton said. “Sometimes you don’t even get to take your shoes or coat.”
So, since the spring of 2015, Hylton and her mother, Judy Davis, have been working on making child-size quilts for officers with the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department to wrap the children in, and hopefully provide some support when they come across them during traumatizing calls.
