"How to Solve a Murder in Honduras," a special series from AJS that tells the story of how criminal investigators, lawyers, police officers, psychologists, information analysts, and victims are working together to end violence in Honduras.

THE WITNESS. Chapter 1 in the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Brave witnesses are crucial to convicting murderers in Honduras. Some of these witnesses later become community informants, providing Peace and Justice staff with important information and insight about crime in their neighborhood, and helping to solve even more cases.

THE INVESTIGATOR. Chapter 2 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Investigators with AJS’s Peace and Justice Project accompany police officers as they investigate a crime. Perhaps most importantly, they act as a trusted bridge between victims and authorities, giving witnesses the confidence to report crimes and share their testimony.

THE INFORMATION ANALYST. Chapter 3 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. Information Analysts with AJS’ Peace and Justice Project compile leads and evidence lawyers and investigators learn through their fieldwork and from witnesses. With their digital database, they are able to analyze suspects' identities and bring down criminal networks.

THE POLICE OFFICIAL. Chapter 4 of the "How to Solve a Murder in Honduras" Series. AJS’s ultimate goal is to see government systems, including the police force, work well. The Peace and Justice project doesn’t try to do an end run around the National Police, but to accompany them, train them, and help them to do their job better.

Introduction

Please pray with us!

The board of directors of AJS is thrilled to report that we have received sufficient donations and pledges to cover the cost of constructing our new office in Honduras!

We want a deep change in our country… a person who responds to our longing for justice," we prayed during the Attorney General selection process. 

An AJS-led coalition of Brave Christians - Onan (far right) - pray at Honduras' Supreme Court for an Attorney General who is "competent, diligent, independent, and brave."

"As AJS has continually challenged me and helped me to grow in my understanding of justice, I have also been able to share this message with people around the world," writes AJS Executive Director Jill Stoltzfus.
