Tragically, 20 years ago on November 1, 1997, George Halvagis’s 25-year-old daughter Mersina was taken from her loved ones in the most heinous and unimaginable of circumstances, when she was brutally murdered at Fawkner Cemetery.
In Mersina’s memory, George has dedicated his life to supporting other families to secure justice for their lost loved ones, and has become a face for victims of crime in our community.
As a Crime Stoppers Victoria dedicated ambassador, George has spent more than a decade tirelessly supporting the not-for-profit crime-fighting organisation, campaigning to promote our profile and raise vital funds for Crime Stoppers.
As George says: “It is up to us, the community, to keep this state safe for our children to grow up into and for our elderly to live their lives without fear. All of us have a responsibility, a duty, to keep our state safe from criminals, and we can do it, if we all stand together and try.
“I urge you, whoever knows anything, please pick up the phone and call Crime Stoppers – you may save someone’s life.”
