Mark Fuhrman

October 16, 1994

Re O.J. Simpson case: My sister was murdered last year. Her case, in the midst of so many other unresolved homicides in Los Angeles, was shuffled between various detectives with limited time and experience to offer. It wasn't until my sister's case was given to Detective Mark Fuhrman that I saw any real progress or interest taken.

Not only did he express sincere empathy toward me and my family over the loss, but he's put forth the groundwork and effort needed to conduct a more solid investigation. My calls never go unreturned and as a Latin American who is sensitive to prejudice, I never once detected that Fuhrman manifested an offensive attitude or comments.

I wonder how many citizens actually understand the mental pressures of working in crime-infested areas and the tragedies witnessed. I can only imagine that the ability to maintain a balanced vision would be continually challenging.
