THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The captain of the investigations department in Thomasville is speaking out against domestic violence.

This month is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

A candlelight vigil was held Thursday at the St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Thomasville.

Captain Maurice Holmes said domestic violence has had a direct impact on his life.

"My sister in Law, Tammy White, she was murdered by her estranged husband. Not only was she murdered but her 16 year old son was also murdered by this individual. It was something that touched me and impacted me deeply and I am zero tolerance when it comes to domestic violence," said Holmes.

The event started with a march and then followed by candlelight vigil.
