Origin of POMC

Parents Of Murdered Children, INC. was founded by Robert and Charlotte Hullinger in Cincinnati Ohio, in 1978 after the murder of their 19-year old daughter Lisa by former boyfriend Bill Coday. Lisa had broken-off her 1 1/2 year relationship with Coday before going to Hamburg, Germany with a work-study program. While she was in Germany, Coday phoned Lisa several times, begging her to take him back. When she continued to refuse, he flew to Germany and persuaded Lisa to see him. When she again refused to continue their relationship, Coday beat her with a hammer, which put her in a comatose condition. After being informed of Lisa's serious condition, the Hullinger's obtained emergency visas and flew to Germany to be with her. Lisa was able to indicate by the squeeze of a hand that she was aware of their presence. Unfortunately, she never gained consciousness. Two weeks after her attack, Lisa died. Bill Coday was released after serving only 16 months in jail, returning to the United Stats with NO criminal record. He went back to college, obtained several degrees, married and settled in New York.

Just two months after Lisa's death, Charlotte contacted Father Ken Czillinger, a Roman Catholic Priest, who had been working in the field of bereavement. He was able to put the Hullinger's in touch with three other parents whose children had been murdered. In December 1978, just three months after Lisa's death, the Hullinger's opened their home and held the first meeting of parents of murdered children in the country. From their humble beginning of five parents, including themselves, the Hullinger's determination to survive and help others grew into a national organization. It has over 200 Chapters and Contact People Nationwide.

Sadly, in 1997, the Hullinger's experienced pain, anger and devastation once again when they learned that Bill Coday moved to Florida and had murdered again. This time, he was found guilty of murder and on July 26, 2002, he was sentenced to death.
