Helen Hill (May 9, 1970 - January 4, 2007) was an experimental animator, filmmaker, educator, artist, writer, and social activist who lived in New Orleans, Louisiana. Hill's still-unsolved murder by a random intruder in her home in the early morning of January 4, 2007 was one of six murders in New Orleans in a single 24-hour period, and it, along with the murder a week before of Dinerral Shavers, http://www.unsolvedcanada.ca/index.php/topic,2458.0.html -- the New Orleans musician and Hot 8 Brass Band snare drummer -- sparked widespread civic outrage in New Orleans, and led to a March Against Violence on City Hall by thousands of New Orleanians, drawing significant press coverage in the United States and the rest of the world.

Poor NOLA, that place has been so corrupt, so poor and so violent for so long. I understand the new govenor there has been making a huge efffort to finally confront these issues. Such a wonderful city, I hope it works out.
