On August 31, 2017 Real Conversations with Melody Fox honored Miriam Carey as its Community Spotlight during its live event with special featured guest Award-winning TV Talk Host Val Carey (TOTM! Tea Talk with Val Carey). Miriam Carey was tragically killed on Oct. 3, 2013 in DC in the wake of traffic issues. The Carey Family, led by family spokesperson Val Carey and attorney Eric Sanders, is on a campaign for justice in an incident that not only claimed the life of Miriam but imposed trauma on her infant daughter that was in tow. Based on what is known, the baby was in the back seat of the car as her mother was shot and killed. Each year the family commemorates the life of Miriam along with its ongoing fight to gather the facts and have full transparency.
